Britain’s little piece of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar, is much more than just ‘The Rock’. This microcosm of the UK, with better weather, is home to red pillar-boxes, fish and chip shops, helmeted policemen and afternoon tea. [ReadMoreMob]
The eponymous rock rises 426m from the sea and is riddled with caves and tunnels. Covered in unique vegetation, it is also home to numerous species of birds, not to mention the infamous Barbary Apes. The towering sentinel also has a cable-car to its peak for grandstand views over its Spanish and African neighbours.
Gibraltar also offers the opportunity for a spot of whale watching, bird watching, hiking, fishing and water sports. But, for something a bit more relaxing, there are fine cafés from which to watch the world go by, or one of Gibraltar’s divine beaches.
