Stunning walk

Well worth the effort so long as you're reasonably fit. stunning views and the new fencing and ropes make it far safer than it was when I first did it over 20 years ago. take... read more

Well worth the effort so long as you're reasonably fit. stunning views and the new fencing and ropes make it far safer than it was when I first did it over 20 years ago. take lots of water if it's sunny as the eastern side of the rock gets roasting hot in the sun. A good workout to justify a... More

Beautiful walk down from the top of the Rock with few people and even fewer cars, Alas after the walk my calfs suffered very much and I guess it a walk too far!! This was June 2015 in beautiful weather

my husband and I did this hike when our cruise ship ported in Gibraltar for the day. We took a cab to the Jew's gate, paid 1 pound apiece, to walk this adventure. It took us about 50 minutes with a couple s stops to rest. We only saw 4 other people on the trail, a couple and a single... More

A bit hard to find behind the O'Hara battery (if you'd like to go it the easier way down), but it's well worth it. You're very likely to escape the crowds and even meet nobody. If you have good shoes, the steps are well passable. You may also visit historic bunkers. And the vistas are just amazing.

If going up the rock, I definitely recommend taking the Mediterranean steps up as opposed to walking the road or hiring a taxi to take you up. Some of the views are simply spectacular, including a view along the East side of the rock that's up there with one of the best views I've ever seen. The walk itself is... More

A spectacular walk down the East side cliffs. We are not great with heights but after a few minutes we got used to the drop and the views were well worth it.

Great way to do your daily workout and have a view of natural beauty. You start from the Pillars of Hercules which is like a piece taken from teh legend of Olympus. Take good shose to climb this area, although called med steps, you dont get steps for the large part of the road - it is rather just a... More

Before you go, bring your drinks and snacks with you from town. Top on Rock there is one cafe in cable car station and its pretty expensive.

We'd been to Gibraltar before on a cruise ship so this time I wasn't really looking forward to it as I thought we'd done everything. I then read about these steps so we walked there from the cruise ship. I'm so glad we went as the views were fabulous on our climb up. I was worried I wouldn't be able... More

Not for the unfit or vertigo sufferers but well worth the effort for the views of the Med. Lots of WW2 gun batteries to see as you climb too. Wear sturdy footwear and try to go early morning or in the evening as it can get hot.
