Gibraltar Holidays,  Gibraltar Holiday Packages Overview

Gibraltar is commonly called The Rock. Bordered by Spain, Gibraltar is a UK territory with locals that are proudly British. The country has a very British feel and therefore attracts a huge number of British expats and travellers each year.

Today, the country is a very unique mix of British, Spanish and Moorish influences. It also has a very commanding and important position between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It is located strategically between Africa and Europe and is quite a popular destination for visitors that want to take a freak from visiting Spain to view the Barbary apes and the Palladian architecture of Gibraltar.

Throughout Gibraltar there are a number of spots from which beautiful views can be enjoyed. Europa Point is one of the popular spots offering the view of Africa's Coast. It is also the location where the Mediterranean meets Atlantic. The famous Barbary monkeys can be seen at Upper Rock, a nature reserve and military installation. Gibraltar also offers excellent dolphin watching opportunities.

Gibraltar features an extensive network of underground tunnels like the Siege Tunnels. The tunnels were dug for defence during the Great Siege and are open to visitors today. St. Michael's Cave is a beautiful natural grotto that was once inhabited during the Neolithic times.

Gibraltar has quite a good nightlife with pubs, bars, restaurants and clubs to be found everywhere. Casemates Square is a good place for enjoying good food and for people-watching. Irish Town is another good destination with several good bars.
