The Rock of Gibraltar region
Gibraltar is a British Colony attached to the foot of Spain within easy reach of Africa (Morocco) by ferry - within one hour. The currently is Sterling, the language is both English and Spanish with Gibraltarian a quaint mix between the two. The Border between Gibraltar and Spain is open 24 hours per day travelling through either on foot or by car. Gibraltar is a mile wide and three miles long. It is famous for the rock apes, seige tunnels and duty-free shopping. There is plenty of night life - casinos, funky nightclubs and superb restaurants.
Sandy Bay is on the Eastern side of the Rock. It is the only holiday complex with a beach on its doorstep. A short walk away is the beach and holiday village of Catalan Bay which has restaurants and bars and is popular with all Gibraltarians.
Local activities include diving, surfing, swimming, walking, sailing, fishing, golf and water ski-ing. There are a number of stairs to the apartment which is why it is not suitable for the elderly or infirm however the few steps down to the beach make it a wonderful holiday for children.

"Excellent accomodation in Gibraltar"
The apartment was well equipped, clean, tidy and perfect for a family with two teenagers. The beach is literally a few stairs away and while popular, was never crowded or felt like space was limited. … More

Just spent a very pleasant short stay at this apartment with my brother. It was clean,comfy,well equipped and the location is stunning. There is a regular,efficient and free bus service connecting you to the rest of Gibraltar and great food just a short walk away in Catalan Bay. Very reasonable rates and good communication with the manager ensured a wonderful holiday. Would definitely return.

"Ideal Place to Chill Out and Relax"
Wonderfully located apartment with ever changing views of the sea. From watching the sun rise to lounging on the terrace with a glass as it sets at night - superb.
The apartement is very comfortably furnished with all you could need for a happy self catering holiday. The local bus service is close at hand and is very economical. You can even get the bus to the local Morrisons store is you need a large shop, or there is a small shop closer to hand at Catallan Bay, you can get there by steps leading down by the side of the Caletta Hotel. An added bonus of Gibraltar is that you can use sterling, no need to change currency. This has to be a good thing in the current economic climate. Spain is easily accessible also, the local bus station is located just a few minutes walk on the other side of the border crossing. If you fancy a night out in the town, the local taxis are very reasonable. We have spent many happy evenings there and if you are feeling like a walk, the walk back to the apartment is very comfortable.
I completely agree this apartment is ideally situated. So pleased you enjoyed your holiday. best wishes, Jackie
