Gibraltar’s sunny climate and temperate seas sustain a remarkable diversity of life. The breathtaking array of corals, underwater caves and marine species make it a magnet for divers.
It’s difficult to imagine a better place for learning to sail – the sheltered Bay with the open seas beyond presenting opportunities for sailors of all abilities. Diving is a speciality, attracting beginners and experts alike to its many wrecks, reefs and pinnacles – SCUBA qualifications can be obtained here on Gibraltar – and if you’d like to flex your wind-or kite-surfing muscles, head along the coast to Tarifa for some of the best surfing in Europe. Well-equipped boats offer big game fishing – the unique positioning of the Rock giving anglers the best chance of a great catch. For an experience to remember, join a dolphin-watching tour and see if can spot the odd migrating whale while you’re at it!
