Fantastic views here. We visited on November 1st so it wasn't beach season but the beaches would probably be great in summer.

If you fancy a break from the hoards of main street, either walk round or get a bus and chill for a bit. Two places to eat (we had a very nice fish lunch) and a beach to enjoy.

Yes, this is our favourite part of Gibraltar, so we are a bit hesitant to recommend you here as we loved its peace and tranquility! However, as we are unfortunately not there all the time we can use these lines to tell you that this...More

Lovely little beach, normal amenities you would expect. Great for swimming or sun bathing. With direct access from the hotel we were staying at

I found this to be one of the nicer areas of Gibraltar take some pictures of the buildings and the rock mix well especially with their different color rooftops

No. 4 or 8, just check the front of the bus says 'both worlds' as the destination or you'll go the opposite way, in which case just stay on it and sight see.
