If you fancy a break from the hoards of main street, either walk round or get a bus and chill for a bit. Two places to eat (we had a very nice fish lunch) and a beach to enjoy.

I found this to be one of the nicer areas of Gibraltar take some pictures of the buildings and the rock mix well especially with their different color rooftops

Visited Catalan bay following a port stop at Gibraltar on our cruise holiday. Got a taxi from the port to the beach which was only 10 minutes away. Clean safe beach for families. Toilets and showers available and a few small restaurants near by.

No. 4 or 8, just check the front of the bus says 'both worlds' as the destination or you'll go the opposite way, in which case just stay on it and sight see.
