About this location

The Sandy Bay region

World famous the Rock of Gibraltar stands at the gateway of the Mediterranean. It offers year round sun, great beaches, fascinating history, marvelous views, duty free shopping, fine dining, adventure sports, whale and dolphin watching, bird watching, diving and watersports and other interesting activities.

The sun shines in Gibraltar all year round reaching 30 plus degrees in the high summer months.

As a British overseas territory, the sole official language of Gibraltar is English, and it is used by the Government and in schools.

Many of Gibraltar's linguistic influences come from its neighbours, Spain and Morocco. Most locals are bilingual, also speaking Spanish, due to Gibraltar's proximity to Spain. Most Gibraltarians converse in Llanito, their vernacular which is mostly based on Andalusian Spanish, but greatly influenced by other Mediterranean languages. However, because of the varied mix of ethnic groups which reside here, other languages such as Hindi, Berber, and Arabic are also spoken on The Rock.

Currency is Gibraltar Pounds and Sterling, these have the same value.

Most of the Rock's upper area is covered by a nature reserve which is home to around 230 Barbary Macaques, the famous apes of Gibraltar. These are the only wild apes or monkeys found in Europe. WARNING ! Do not feed the apes. There is a huge fine which will be imposed if you are caught. watch your personal belongings as the apes will steal anything they can get hold of. Bags and sun glasses are particularly attractive to them, as are carrier bags.

As a British colony Gibraltar has many references to its British heritage; pubs, red mail and telephone boxes, police helmets, fish and chips, Marks and Spencers and BHS (British Home Stores), to name but a few.

Dolphins and other marine mammals, including Pilot and Killer Whales and an occasional Sperm Whale visit the waters surrounding the Rock. There are many fascinating diving sites, with a number of sunken wrecks to explore. For bird watchers Gibraltar has a variety of local and migatory birds. During the migration period thousands of birds visit Gibraltar when heading to and from Africa.

Gibraltar electricity is the same voltage as the UK, standard UK three pin plugs are used in the apartment.

Gibraltar is also a gateway to Spain and Morocco. Local travel agents can book a variety of excursions.

Sandy Bay

Sandy Bay is just as it sounds, a beautiful sandy beach with fabulous views of the Mediterranean, Spain and in the distance North Africa. The waters are safe for swimming and you can fish from the breakwaters. Just 10 minutes walk down the coast road is the prestigious Caleta Hotel where the Catalan Lounge & Terrace offers snacks and drinks throughout the day as well as a delicious English afternoon tea from 3pm to 6pm complete with scrumptious, home-made scones, cakes, pastries and an assortment of perfectly created sandwiches. Add a glass of champagne for true afternoon decadence and take in the stunning sea views from the terrace. In the evening, the Catalan Lounge & Terrace is transformed into a cocktail lounge where you may enjoy a glass or two of your favourite drink whilst looking out at the sparkling night sky or enjoy a delicious dinner in Nunos the hotels' own Italian Restaurant. There is also a Spa centre in the hotel offering treatments etc to non residents so why not pamper yourself. The hotel is in Catalan Bay where you can enjoy the delicious foods in the restaurants, or enjoy the beach. There is also a mini-market where you can pick up some groceries.

The bus service which stops right outside the complex will take you into town in just 10 minutes. There is a further stop just halfway between Both Worlds and the Caleta Hotel where you can catch a bus to other parts of Gibraltar.
