With its warm Mediterranean climate, wonderfully diverse natural landscape and first-class VAT free shopping, dining and entertainment options, Gibraltar has so much more to offer its visitors than you imagine.
The Rock is a destination brimming with history, nature, quality services and exciting visitor attractions
Gibraltar’s unique location means you can see 3 countries (Spain, Morocco and of course Gibraltar) or 2 continents Europe and Africa all on one day. A trip up to Europa Point to see the spectacular sunsets across the narrow strait separating Europe and Africa is one of the highlights and not to be missed.
The rich diversity of nature found in Gibraltar
draws many visitors every year. High on the Rock live its most famous residents, the friendly, charming and inquisitive Barbary apes, Europe’s only wild primates that have lived here for centuries. Legend holds that when the apes leave, Gibraltar will cease to be British.
In the seas around Gibraltar the diversity of life is yet more bountiful. Sailing into the bay, one will find their boat trailed by flying fish and leaping dolphins. From April to October you may see whales swimming in the straits. Beneath the waves, divers will find reefs and wrecks teeming with colourful and exotic sea-life.
This small but hugely proud British Overseas Territory is like home from home for many travelling from the UK. Gibraltar feels familiar and yet with its own unique historical and cultural heritage it can both delight and surprise.
Direct Flights to Gibraltar from UK airports include Gatwick (daily) Heathrow (daily) Manchester 4 x week and Bristol 4 x week. Malaga Airport is the next nearest airport. Crescent Tours can arrange private transfer to your hotel from Gibraltar or Malaga Airport as part of the package.
