Europe Point encompasses the lighthouse, various fortifications including a cannon, a café, children’s play area and a large mosque which is slightly set back from the other buildings.

We ventured through the tunnel beside the mosque which took us through to 2 pebbled beaches. A waterfall is by the area as is a fortification high above... More

The area is wide and open so that you get great views. There isn't a lot to visit at the Point. The best way to get there is by bus. You only pay £2.25 per day for a Hoppa Ticket which allows you to travel anywhere at any time and get on and off as much as you like. What... More

It's like being at the end of the world when you are there - well the end of Europe anyway ! From the Caletta Hotel you can walk to Europa Point, we walked back to the hotel from there, it means walking through a tunnel through the rock which says "No Pedestrians" but locals use it so we did.

The atlantic, the med and the straits of Gibraltar all meet here. There is a view point with a canon, a cafe, toilets and a huge mosque. A bit dull really.

We took the local bus (very cheap) to Europa point, the lighthouse is huge & on a clear day you can see Africa! Went to the cafe for coffee & cake but the man inside was very rude so we went to the ice cream van instead!

Covered this as part of a tour of the rock. The views are stunning and you can clearly see Africa in the distance. Not much else here unless you enjoy just sitting and reflecting with some great views
