With the warm, Mediterranean climate, wondrous landscape and stunning beaches, Gibraltar is a great holiday destination for those of you looking to escape the April showers. On a cruise from the UK, stop by Gibraltar and enjoy our top 5 things to see and do.

Mediterranean Steps

The pathway climbs the limestone cliffs of the Rock of Gibraltar, right to the summit, a spot which provides amazing views across the sea and the mountainous landscape of North Africa. As you climb the impressive steps you’ll come into contact with a whole range of beautiful wild flowers, historical points and fascinating animals. A popular point of the journey up is Martin’s cave, a guarded roosting site for the rare Schreiber’s bat, a beautiful creature that you and your kids may well spot darting between trees at dusk. 

St. Michael’s Cave

Lights of multiple colours have been set up inside the cave to highlight the jagged limestone formations that point down towards you. The largest area of the cave has been transformed into an auditorium, and is often used as a venue for local events and performances due to cave’s great acoustics –why not try out your own vocal range?

Apes Den

On your way to St. Michael’s Cave via the Mediterranean Steps you’ll come face to face with these cheeky characters, who balance on the edge of the steps, looking off towards the sea. These monkeys are always up for posing too, and are often the star of many tourists’ photos - so make sure you get the perfect holiday snap! 

Camp Bay

Take a stroll down to Camp Bay, a beach resort that has been transformed to suit everybody’s needs. The resort includes parasols and sunbeds for those looking to relax with a book or a drink, and a few child friendly pools for smaller kids looking to splash around. There’s also a lovely beach-side café that serves ice cool drinks and delicious snacks for when you and your kids start to feel peckish.

Spotting wild dolphins

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Nicole Duncan The best way to see dolphins is in their natural habitat, as they glide through the water and spin into the air. There are many boat trips and dolphin safaris that sail through the water to spot these enigmatic creatures, without disturbing them, as they feed on sardines, squid and herring. You and your family will witness the dolphins interact with each other in and above water, and if you’re lucky you might even get the opportunity to spot a blue whale as it makes its way through the sea.
