Gibraltar Tours will take you on a Round the Rock trip, around the coast lines from east to west stopping at various iconic places and GIbraltar’s popular viewpoints, where you will have a feel for what Gibraltar looks like in all its majestic splendour and character. Locals call this round the rock trip “going for spins” generally done on a calm sunday afternoon, to relax, enjoy the natural beauty and regain strength and motivation before beginning their weekly working days routine.

Along the North and West and onto the South area of the Rock of Gibraltar, where once upon a time all there was to see was sea water, you will be able to see all the luxury building sites that overlook lovely marinas facing the bay of Gibraltar, that have been built along the years.

Through years of reclamation of land to the sea, Gibraltar is said to be a Financial Centre, home to a variety of businesses and trades, that have made Gibraltar a land of many origins, hosting people from all nations, religions and walks of life. This is one of the things that makes Gibraltar such a unique, safe and peaceful place to live.

Along the South district, views of the Bay of Gibraltar can be seen as you drive along the long living Camp Bay known to locals as “El Quarry”. This quarry was opened during the construction of the dockyard between 1894 and 1906 and produced material for rubble filling to construct other sites such as the detached moles. From camp bay gibraltar tour visitors can see as far as the African coast, the mediterranean sea and the Spanish coastline.

After “El Quarry” Gibraltar 360 Round the Rock Tour will take you to Europa Point Lighthouse, located at the southernmost tip of Gibraltar. The lighthouse was built in the 19th century and has been guiding ships through the Strait of Gibraltar for over a century. From the lighthouse, visitors can enjoy stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, the North African coast, and the nearby Spanish coastline.

As you leave the Gibraltar Lighthouse behind, you will head towards Gibraltar’s famous tunnel that crosses through and within the rock across to the eastside of the Rock, where you will be able to dazzle onto the sand beaches of Gibraltar. Sandy Bay has been in recent years replenished with sand from the Sahara desert, while Catalan Bay for locals “La Caleta” maintains its original charm of a picturesque fishing village. You will also see the old water catchments, used formerly as Gibraltar’s source of water collection to supply the people of Gibraltar with fresh water in their homes. Today it serves as a nesting place for various bird species that naturally inhabit the Rock of Gibraltar, but also as temporary stopping points for migratory birds.
