If you choose the non-queu strategy and take a bus for point europe, it is definitely worth a trip and an icecream. A roundtrip (public) busticket serves as all day ticket. After that you can take other busses. Definitively worthwhile rather than hours of waiting in line.

We walked here from Rosia bay, nice walk and worth the effort. Lovely views and some historic sights to see, plus a high mosque.

Took the no.2 bus from outside our Bristol hotel to have coffee at the well appointed café. The area has been refurbished in 2012 with many seats, telescopes walk ways, views of Africa, the Straits of Gibraltar and Gibraltar Bay. The Rock Tour taxis stop here but don't give time to wander round and take in the views and atmosphere.... More

I was so shocked when I stood at the Europa point because only 15miles away was the North of Africa. It was beautiful and there was even a plate to show you the places you could see. Nice little restaurant and wash room facilities!!! Great access to the city and you are able to see some beautiful views. Free parking... More

This area has a cafe and washroom facilities to use. The views are beautiful. It was cool knowing we were the southern most point of Spain. There is a bus that takes you from here to the the eastern beaches every 20 minutes because you can't walk through the tunnels to the eastern beaches. There is a cafe for when... More

Europa Point is very easily reached by bus, we let the kids play at the park while the parents took turns walking around. The park is a lot of fun for the kids, they could have stayed there for hours. Walking around was also fun, you can see Africa and there are some military monuments and information that were interesting.

Easily reached by bus for a few pence. They run every 15 mins so don't bother to pay for an organised trip or a taxi. You can see the gun emplacements and there is an exhibition of Gibraltar through the ages. All free! There is a Mosque which is open at certain times and a lighthouse. Fabulous views and photo...

Saw here on our first day caught the bus from market place, £2:50 return but you can stay on the bus all day for the ticket price. Cafe there and great views. A short walk in the tunnel and you are on the beach. Quite windy when we were there but worth the visit.

In 2010, Europa point was a building site. Now complete, it provides a pleasant set of attractions, viewing points, a children's play area and cafe.
