Europa point is basically the end of Gibraltar with a large car park. The lighthouse is situated here and there are gun emplacements to visit and it is the location of the mosque. A place to visit but not to get to exited by.

This is the southernmost point in Gibraltar. From the town centre take bus number 2 to get here. Buy an adult hoppa ticket for £2.25 and you can travel all day on all the blue buses. Once you reach Europa Point you get a grand view of the mediterranean on one side and the atlantic on the other. You could... More

Don't worry about doing a tour, jump on the no 2 bus (runs every 15 mins) it goes right to Europa Point, there's a gun and museum, playground, cafe, shrine of our lady of Gibraltar and lovely views of Spain and Africa. Gets a little busy when minibuses arrive, but they only stay 15 minutes or so, so nearly always... More

Travelled by minibus. Great weather. Great view of Africa. Ice cream van was reasonable. Tourist office was closed. Only stayed about 20 minutes.

Everything is free apart from the cafe and you cannot visit the lighthouse but a... More

The Trinity Light House Did not like seeing a Mosque there I think it is un-appropriate for the Peninsula!

A lovely view of the med. from Europa point. I recommend a guided tour as we learned some of the historical background particularly of the war years. Nice cafe too

What a great spot to visit, recently built, and still undergoing refurbishment, this has only recently been handed back to the government of Gibralter by the MOD, and like many parts of the Rock, is being made into a lovely tourist attraction. From this point, you have fantastic views of the Atlas mountains and north Africa, and the sea here... More
