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.

  • 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.
  • Will be a five once work finished for the games.
  • Amazing place 😊
