Planning Your Visit

  • How many days should you stay for?

    A long weekend in Gibraltar is more than enough time to visit its must-see sights, but to make the most of its best beaches and beautiful surroundings make it a week. With a Spanish border, it's easy to hire a car and visit Cadiz or Seville within a couple of hours.

  • Where should you stay?

    Gibraltar has plenty of quaint seaside hotels to pick from, many only a stone's throw from the city's main attractions. Though often on the pricier side, booking well in advance can save you some pretty pennies. If you're planning a Spanish adventure, the nearby cities of La Linea or Tarifa serve as great jumping-off locations.
