Great views

Africa seems so close on a clear day! Reasonable cafe here and quite a lot of information about the history of Europa Point. Good bird watching too. Good bus service to get here

Kids park, cafe with ice creams and nice wide views of the ocean and Morocco on clear days. Also a pretty mosque but never been inside.

Fascinating to see Africa so near and yet so fat. Wonderful view on a clear day. Will try the ferry next time.

From Europa point you can see across to Africa. They also have an old gun and underneath has been mini museumed which was quite interesting. (Free). There was also a tourist information office and a café which was nice as it was a cold wet and windy day.

The view of Africa is pretty amazing. Nice to sit & chill there, normally a nice breeze, lots of benches for picnics. Park for kids & a cafe but otherwise not much to do, just a place to admire the views.

Spectacular location with superb views. Nice cafe. Good exhibition at Harding's Battery. Visited the Shrine of Our Lady of Europe which was well presented and prayerful.

We dropped by Europa Point in the late evening and the ocean was vicious as it looked like it rained in that area! It was also really windy but totally worth the experience. The ocean is absolutely gorgeous and it definitely takes your breath away that you can see the point of North Africa. However, since it was the late... More

Great views across the Straits and across to Morroco. The park is easily the best in Gibraltar. Recently added is an old artillery piece, a Polish monument to their General who died in Gibraltar in WW 2 and a refurbished gun emplacement. If you are in Gibraltar when a storm is blowing it's well worth coming down to Europa Point... More

We did a review last year about Europa point and I stated the place needed a Café/Restaurant,,well my prayer's were answered.As you may be aware Europa point is the furthest point and a stones throw from North Africa. A lot of money has very clearly been spent making Europa point a MUST visit place re-designed with a visitor centre monuments... More
