This part of Gibraltar is a more peaceful and serene location with amazing history and views across to North Africa whis is only around 10 miles away. There are some nice walks along the cliff tops and interesting shrines to the history of the area including long range guns, memorials and the lighthouse.

An easy drive to Europa point and plenty of parking. An easy walk to the lighthouse from which you can see North Africa on a clear day. Just by the car park are some WWII memorials and also a lovely white mosque, slightly surreal seeing a mosque with a backdrop of cliffs, gorgeous sea view and then a red and... More

The views across the water to Africa are wonderful. There is also a quant lighthouse here. These two elements make the visit worth it. However, the area itself lacks sparkle. There is a lot of concrete for no reason. It should have been left natural rather than manmade as there is nothing there. Therefore, I have given this average as... More

Europa Point is a nice area to stop for about half an hour to view the scenery and throughout the landscape you will see remnants of WWII artillery. Unfortunately it wasn't quite a clear day so we couldn't see across the Straits of Gibraltar very well except a slight silhouette of the Moroccan coast. There is also a mosque in... More

not a lot here, a lighthouse and small exibition with pictures and multi language audio describing the history of Gibraltar which was very interesting. There is also a small cafe for snacks and hot and cold drinks the best way to get here is with a day trip bus ticket and take the number 2 bus

The southerly tip of Gibraltar and Europe. Nicely laid out with extensive car parking, viewing areas etc. Also a handy cafe where food and drinks can be obtained. Amazing how close Morocco is! This place can be quite windy because of its geographical position, but this shouldn't stand in your way! Also good for watching ships and passage sea birds.

We stopped here for a photo op. This is the southern most point of Gibraltar and is home to a mosque, Catholic Church, and a lighthouse. We needed more time to explore these features but time constraints of the tour did not permit this. The mosque is one of the largest in a non-Muslim country. The lighthouse served to safeguard...

Not an awful lot here, but the views are wonderful. There is a little café which was very busy but had a lovely atmosphere, Childs play area too. It was only a short walk through the nearby tunnel to a lovely beach with a free swimming pool to use.

This area has area has changed so much since my last visit in 1989. I am very impressed that memorials have been built to commemorate the Second World War. As Europe's southern most point it is a great reminder of how much was at risk the last time the World fell out with each other. The Polish memorial is difficult... More

Shame you couldn't go in the lighthouse and also the shrine and mosque were shut. Not much to do there other than look at the views, which were stunning, and grab a snack.
