If you’re anything like me, you probably didn’t think much of Gibraltar before reading this post. The only things that came to mind when I thought of this beautiful place were monkeys and a big rock! Little did I know that there was so much more to this tiny piece of land than I could ever imagine.
Most people would believe that Gibraltar is a part of Spain because its located on the Southern most point. However, its been a British Colony since they defeated the Spaniards in the 1700’s.
The official language is English, but most people are bilingual and speak Spanish as well. Being such a small place, you would be surprised at how many things there are to do. I hope you enjoy my official travel guide when visiting Gibraltar.
Where to Stay:
This has to be one of the most unique yacht hotels I’ve ever seen, it is known as the Superyacht 5 Star hotel in the world. This hotel has some beautiful rooms and suites that have some of the most breathtaking views. Luxury is the only word that comes close to describing a stay here.
The hotel features 5 restaurants and bars, even one overlooking the city on the top deck. Other amenities include a luxury spa, roof top pool, fitness center with a sauna, a full casino and a cocktail bar. I know I’ll be visiting this hotel and Gibraltar real soon!
Rock of Gibraltar
My first stop when I got there was to go check out the Rock of Gibraltar (obviously). This is one of the main attractions as it is truly a sight to see.
St Micheal’s Cave
If you’re into history, this is definitely a spot you should check out. The rock has a long military history with Great Britain, so there are various places to go underground and explore. Some places are more touristic than others, but they’re definitely worth a visit. There are various WW2 air raid shelters that you could also explore, but you’ll have to take a tour for that.
