If you're a fan of sandy or rocky beaches, holidays in Gibraltar will keep you by the seaside. Stroll or jog along Eastern Beach's white sand that stretches for hundreds of feet. Go birdwatching at rocky Little Bay, or enjoy dinner at one of Catalan Bay's seafood restaurants.
Join the locals on your Gibraltar beach holiday in secretive Sandy Bay. Few other tourists know to continue past Catalan Bay to this small Gibraltar beach on the eastern side of the Rock. The grassy slope above the sandy beach is actually an ancient sand dune.
Play beach volleyball on Eastern Beach, the largest of Gibraltar's beaches. Cool off on your beach holiday by sailing, fishing or diving - Gibraltar has marinas at Marina Bay and Queensway Quay as well as two dive schools. Just a short drive away over the Spanish border from Gibraltar, Tarifa is Europe's windsurfing capital.
Take your kids on a beach holiday to Gibraltar and watch them make a real splash. Try Camp Bay on the west side of the Rock. Near the cruise ship terminal, this Gibraltar beach has a small swimming pool especially for younger children. They'll love the wonderful manmade waterfall, and can cool off with a drink at the summer cafe.
After dark, sip a cool beer and nibble Spanish tapas snacks on the terrace of a Catalan Bay bar on your Gibraltar beach holiday. Savour the succulent seafood in this former fishing village settled by Genoese fishermen in the 18th century, then hop between British pubs and Spanish bars. Round off your beach holiday in Gibraltar with a cocktail on Queensway Quay
