The Gibraltar Skywalk is an impressive Gibraltar attraction that was opened to the public in 2018. It is a glass-bottomed platform that juts out from the top of the famous Rock of Gibraltar, offering visitors breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

The Skywalk Gibraltar Attraction is located at the southern end of the Upper Rock Gibraltar Nature Reserve, which is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. Visitors can access the Skywalk by taking a private tour or semi-private tour with our Gibraltar expert guides, you may also take the cable car to the top of the Rock, or for the nature lovers you can get there by hiking up one of the many trails in the Gibraltar nature reserve. The Skywalk Gibraltar attraction is included in the must see and things to do in Gibraltar Tours packages, we have different options to offer, such as, our Silver Tour of Gibraltar, Gold Tour of Gibraltar, Diamond Tour of Gibraltar, Platinum Tour, each with their own sequence of places to see in one day in Gibraltar, or even a custom package to fit your likes, the time you have available, your age and physical abilities. Most Gibraltar Attractions that Gibraltar Tours organise, are suitable for all ages and abilities, and are very popular Gibraltar tours for cruise passengers.

Once at the Skywalk, visitors can step onto the glass platform and gaze down at the sheer drop of over 400 metres to the sea below. The view is nothing short of spectacular, with 360 degree panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea, the Bay of Gibraltar, and the Moroccan coast visible on clear days. From the top you will be able to see other Gibraltar Attractions in the distance like the East side of the Rock of Gibraltar and the Gibraltarian beaches.

One of the unique features of the Gibraltar Skywalk attraction is its design, which is inspired by the natural environment of the Rock. The platform is made up of four triangular sections that form a diamond shape, mirroring the shape of the Rock itself. The glass panels are tinted to mimic the colour of the Rock of Gibraltar and reflect the changing colours of the sky and sea throughout the day.

The Skywalk has quickly become a popular tourist attraction in Gibraltar, drawing visitors from all over the world. It offers a thrilling experience for those who are brave enough to step onto the glass platform and look down at the dizzying heights below. Although it is easily accessible by car with our Gibraltar Transfers and Rock Tours, with only a few metres of uphill walk, the height is the most challenging for those with fear of heights or vertigo. But Gibraltar Rock Tours will give you more information about this when you book our Gibraltar excursions.

However, the Skywalk is not just a tourist attraction. It is also an important part of Gibraltar’s efforts to promote sustainable tourism and protect the natural environment of the Rock of Gibraltar. The glass platform was designed to minimise its impact on the ecosystem of the Upper Rock Nature Reserve of Gibraltar, with the structure being built to accommodate the movement of wildlife and minimise the use of concrete, while at the same time creating one of the most popular Gibraltar Attractions in Gibraltar Tours.

Overall, the Gibraltar Skywalk is a stunning and innovative Gibraltar attraction that offers visitors a unique perspective on the natural beauty of Gibraltar. Whether you’re a thrill-seeker looking for an adrenaline rush or simply want to enjoy the incredible views, the Gibraltar Skywalk is definitely worth being listed on your things to do in one day with our Gibraltar Tours.
