The new stadium has smartened up Europa Point and the place looks a lot better than when it was scrubland, the place has memorials and gives you history of battles and conflicts which is really interesting. I visited on a really windy day and due to it being so hot the breeze was welcome. I went to the cafeteria for a cold drink and the staff were pleasant and welcoming. I travelled by local bus the the point and then walked via the tunnels connecting to camp bay, little Bay and Rosia Bay before jumping on another bus to the Trafalger Cemetary.

A nice little promenade, nicely set out. There’s not a lot to see, a lighthouse at the southernmost point of Gibraltar
A nice memorial to General Sikorsky from the Second World War.

End of No. 2 bus route which was handy as a long uphill downhill walk from the town centre, had to take the bus back
Nice little cafe for drinks

Definitely not a case of ‘whats the point’ We have visited the point a few times. I would recommend the frequent bus service as it is quite a walk from the main part of Gib. I would also recommend taking a cardi or something to keep warm as even when it’s hot everywhere else it can be very windy and blowy. It’s a nice little walk with a small café with play equipment plus the mosque and lighthouse but otherwise not a lot else. I have never seen access to the mosque or lighthouse.

Originally called Harding’s Point the name was probably changed to make it sound more of a tourist destination! Great views across the Straits to mountains of North Africa (weather permitting) and back towards mainland Spain, also plenty of sea traffic crisscrossing. When I first visited here the area was derelict with not much more than the lighthouse (the only one outside UK for which Trinity House is responsible) and mosque but now there’s the restored gun with visitor centre underneath, better cafe and toilet facilities, sports pitches, Sikorski monument, upgraded groundworks with seating areas and picnic tables. Easily reached by the frequent number 2 bus service it’s worth making the effort to get here - you probably need around an hour to see everything before moving on.

Amazing views across the Strait of Gibraltar to the coast of north Africa ahead and across the Bay of Gibraltar to southern Spain to the right. Children's play equipment, cafe serving lovely cakes, bus stop for no.2, mosque, a battery named after Harding and a lighthouse may also be of interest. Visited once on the bus from the town centre and second time with a taxi tour tailor made for us by the driver.

Great views over to North Africa and back towards the rock. There is a large car park and cafe located here famed for its coffee and churros. The modest sights include the lighthouse, a church and an old gun battery and various memorial plaques. The point is well linked by a regular bus service. Around half a mile away is located the Gotham cave viewing platform, which rather disappointingly is not open at weekends or even much during the week days.

"Europa Point" is the Southernmost part of Gilbraltar and one of its most important tourist attractions! This flat area is occupied by different buildings, as the "Europa Point Lighthouse", "Harding's Battery", "Sikorski Memorial", "Shrine of Our Lady of Europe" and "Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque". Take your time and stroll along. On clear days, rewarding views of the Strait and Northern Africa await you! Enjoy

I walked here from the main Gibraltar town (not so easy as you have to pass through a tunnel without a good footpath at one point). There is a cafe, views of the straits, a big cannon and the lighthouse, but not much else.

Locally it is a popular place as there is a sports centre next to it and lots of parking (which is a big issue in Gibraltar).

A bus goes every few minutes from the bus station at Casemates Square, and it means you see part of the country that you would otherwise miss.
A good walk round, and we did see Morocco very clearly from the end. There is a cafe there (which we didn't use), and a lighthouse and some things left from previous forays. Unfortunately the shrine was closed , due to the pandemic.

Lighthouses tend to have a stunning location and view and this one is no exception.

From here you can see the mountains of Africa over the other side of the straits. It is such a busy maritime route that there are always vessels of different shapes and sizes within eyeball range.

Right next to the lighthouse is Harding's Battery, an old gun emplacement (there are so many on the rock of course).

Adjacent is the memorial to General Sikorski, the Polish Wartime leader who died a few yards off the coast when his aircraft crashed into the sea on take-off with only the pilot surviving.

Turn your back to the sea and you can see more of the coastal defences and also get a great view of the Rock of Gibraltar itself.

On a personal note, my great-grandfather was lighthouse keeper here back in 1881. His brother was also keeper here ten years later.
