Here are a few Gibraltar highlights that I feel any visitor to the country would benefit from during a trip to Gibraltar.
Gibraltar Top Rated Attractions
As far as attractions in Gibraltar go, there are 2 main features that draw in a lot of tourists. There is The Rock of Gibraltar and the ocean that surrounds the peninsula.
The brilliant weather that the country is known for helps bring these 2 features into their own. Even winter in Gibraltar can be very pleasant when compared to countries like the United Kingdom.
On the Rock itself there are a number of interesting historical sites and places to see. Remember to bring your camera!
Of the main Gibraltar top rated attractions, the Rock can be conquered in one day. I would place St Michaels Cave, The Apes, The Cable Car and The Great Siege Tunnels in a category of must dos when staying in Gibraltar. All are able to be done in a day if you start early.
The 3 marinas in Gibraltar are full of luxury boats over the summer months as many people call in on Gibraltar during their travels. Together with the private liners, there is an abundance of operators offering sailing/fishing trips or days out watching the dolphins which are plentiful in The Straits.
Gibraltar Top Rated Restaurants
Out of the many places to eat in Gibraltar, I have chosen only 3 as part of my Gibraltar top rated restaurants. I wouldnt rate any of them better than the other, but would rely more on your personal preference.
The last time I was at Casa Pepe I had an amazing fish dish, but they have a great variety of Spanish food to fill your tummy. The friendly atmosphere is very inviting especially if you go in a large group.
A good place to go if you are an avid meat eater would be Gauchos. They specialise in Argentinean style steaks. You pay for quality here, but when that steak melts in your mouth it will leave you wanting more (if you can finish the large portion).
If you are in the mood for a mix of fine seafood, then the best place to go would be La Mamela, located at Catalan Bay. Serving up the freshest seafood in town, wonderfully presented in a great location. La Mamela can get very busy in the summer months, so get there early for a seat on the terrace.
