The assortment of foods that you can get when you decide you’re hungry and ready to explore will leave you wishing you had more time and more stomach room. Cuisines range from the spicy foods of Spanish origin, to the more traditional British cookery, upwards to fast foods such as hamburgers and French fries of the more popular fast food chain restaurants.

GibraltarThe shopping is where Gibraltar really excels. Duty free, Gibraltar can offer you anything from fine china to crystal in the many small local shops that line the streets and beckon you to come inside and look around.  

Some of the larger of the UK chain stores and department stores are also in evidence, while smaller retail merchants give wonderful goods for a remarkable cost, such as leather goods, jewelry, wine and spirits, as well as even hand made clothing and souvenirs of the area.

The assortment of land based attractions is rivaled only by those you can find on the water.

Gibraltar may only be seven miles in size, but once you get here, you’re going to be hard pressed to see it all, and you’re  not  going to want to miss a single inch of it.
