What we will do
- Travel north across Gibraltar to the border between this small colony and Spain, and to the Spanish mainland beyond. You are headed towards Catalan Bay, and from this vantage point overlooking a Genoese-style fishing village, you will be able to savor the spectacular views of Spain and North Africa.
- Next you will proceed along the outskirts of town, passing the American War Memorial and the Trafalgar Cemetery to arrive at Europa Point. From here you can admire views of the coast of North Africa, just 12 miles across the famous Strait of Gibraltar. From here you will appreciate why this territory was, and continues to be, of such strategic importance to the British Navy.
- Your next stop will be at the renowned Rock Hotel. The location and proximity to the beach and the clear blue Mediterranean Sea makes the hotel unique on the peninsula. Take in the scenery as you savor a delightful morning or afternoon tea or coffee accompanied by a tempting selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes. Return to the ship at the end of the tour.
