At first sight this location looks like it has nothing to offer as the mosque an the view only seem prominent. also on offer is the lighthouse and the keepers cottages that are now used as holiday cottages. Next door is a large gun that seems to out of place until you explore. On the steps to the cellar are... More

This recently refurbished part of Gibraltar is a nice spot to take in some spectacular views across the straights. The lighthouse and various memorials, Guns etc add some nice features with walkways up and down giving differing views across the sea. From here Africa looks really close. There is now a small restaurant that sells a variety of foods that... More

Beautiful place well worth a visit! Very long queu to get through to "England" though. Lots of big ships passing. Also, it didn't cost us anything to walk around and have a look. There are also a small playground for the kids and a cafe'/restaurant wich we left after poor service.

Went as part of a guided Rock Tour which I would definitely recommend. The views of the Atlas Mountains in Africa are quite stunning as are the views of Algeciras. The mosque is a beautiful building and very much complements the area. It's also quite quirky to see a cricket pitch on the southern tip of Europe.

This is a lovely place to visit with excellent views across the Straits in good weather. A lot of time and effort has been expended in improving the facility with the Europa Point Express snack bar handy but the staff can be grumpy! Good play areas for children and easy to get to by bus if you have no personal... More

Super new extensive play area for children and lots of historic things to look at (lighthouse, guns etc). Good views and vistas too. Worth a visit.

It's a breath taking moment when your eays has been passed the water barrier and you can see a tiny line of Africa - another continent, another world and place to see. It's like you are in two places at the same time. Feeling for me was that I can easly swim to that shore - it looks so close,... More
