Offering a glimpse of Africa on a clear day, Europa Point sits at the gateway between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic on the southernmost tip of the peninsula. Apart from taking in the scenic views of Moroccan mountains and Spanish coastal towns, visit one the area's notable buildings, such as the 15th-century Catholic chapel or the monument to a World War II Polish general. Most of the other buildings--including a lighthouse, underground well, and military battery--date from the 19th century.

  • We walk to the lighthouse and we love the view. did a bit of wind but it was beautiful to see the view. We can see Africa.

  • We wanted to go there on foot, following the road. But nothing is done to pedestrians in Gibraltar. No sidewalks or very little... Signs of fragmentary ultra indication and on arrival at the end of two hours of walking, nothing! Ample parking, an old Cannon, a naughty lighthouse. Do not waste your day. Stay in Spain where there are so many beautiful things to admire and observe the rock by far.

  • Great view of the Mediterranean sea, the African continent from afar, and the horizon. There are some World War 2 memorials as well as the lighthouse and mosque. Nothing much to do but just enjoy the view.
  • Es very beautiful I was live there manfico the biu.
  • Wonderful views of the Strait of Gibraltar. Unfortunately, we could not see Africa (Morocco) due to the fog. One of the highlights of the island is the Europa point.

  • Nice spot at the southern end of Gibraltar. The way there and back is madness

  • The day we went was a tremendous wind. Really annoying. The place is nothing special, the truth. It is simply the point to the South of Europe, but nothing more.
