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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Despite the pretentious name, it is not the southernmost point of Europe. That cape is not called in european Moroccan (or Tarifa) point and is located a little further south from Algeciras. Here the name is european. However, walking here along Europe Road, we can see from afar... Mosque. No, it's not Morocco yet. This is still Europe. Yes, Europe is like that now. There is also a memorial to polish prime minister Sikorski, who died in a plane crash and previously stood at the airport of Gibraltar from which he took off. But the Poles asked to move the monument here. It's more convenient for them to gather... What remains of good old England is the lighthouse and Harding's battery, a reminder of the importance of Gibraltar to the former "Lady of the Seas".

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.

On a clear day Morocco is easily viewable from here. The lighthouse is nice enough but for me I was most impressed by the giant WWII naval gun and bunkers. There's a kids playground and, unusually for Gibraltar, a sense of space. You can also look up at The Rock to its highest point, which makes as ever for an iconic backdrop.
