Virgin Voyages' guide to Gibraltar
Set on the tip of the Iberian Peninsula, this tiny British territory has a giant limestone mass and a strong global punch.
Rock out in Gibraltar
Surrounding the rock lies a fishing village, six stretches of beach, and a British-esque town complete with bright red phone booths. On the town’s singular street, you’ll find a beautiful cacophony of languages like Andalusian Spanish, British English, and Llanito. But Gibraltar’s incredible combination of culture extends beyond just Spanish and British to include Maltese, Italian, Moor and more — a product of its strategic seaport on the Strait of Gibraltar — resulting in a tiny town with a big personality.

Strut down the runway
The airport runway bisects the busiest road — visitors cross it on foot.
At only 2.6 square miles, Gibraltar is a small but mighty seaport stop. The Rock of Gibraltar itself can be explored time and time again for hours (and days) on end — undoubtedly finding something new each time you do. Whether you take the cable car or hike the Mediterranean Steps to see it, the scenic views on the way up are almost as impressive as the Rock itself. But climbing up the Mediterranean Steps is not for the faint of heart — you’ll ascend twice the height of Big Ben, but be rewarded with cliffside views so expansive you can take in Africa on the horizon.
