  • Breath taking, especially on a clear day with great visibility, Africa feels so close you could almost touch her. Fantastic to see the Straight of Gibraltar in this way.
  • Get the no’s 2 bus from the Market Place bus terminal, only €1.50 for a single ticket and you won’t be disappointed. Excellent views and lots to see. Go try it. Buses every half hour. Don’t miss this
  • Gibraltar is awesome, but Europa Point is even more awesome. The climate is a bit different here from the other part of The Rock. Bit windy, but always pleasant.
  • Amazing place 😊
  • If you are in Gibraltar go there!
