We caught the bus to Sandy Bay and then walked back to Catalan Bay, where we stopped for lunch by the beach. It's a totally different vibe to the rest of Gibraltar - we enjoyed it. Then caught the bus back.

It is a short bus ride from the City Centre. Access down some steps from the bus stop. Alternatively there is a car park if you drive. Also has a bar and cafe offering refreshments.
