Eastern beach is the largest of the Gibraltar beaches, stretching for several hundred metres on the eastern side of the rock. Many of the beaches are often shaded by the rock, but this one enjoys the sun until sunset.
There is ample parking facilities and a lovely chiringito where you can dine or enjoy a drink or two.
The only drawback is that it is situated close to the runway. Personally though I enjoy watching the planes taking off and landing at one of the worlds most difficult airports for pilots to use.
Catalan bay is the second largaest sandy beach and does become quite crowded in the summer months. It was a fishing village and home to settlers that did not want to venture to the other side of the rock. Nowadays the fishermen sell most of their wares to the small fish restaurants located there, so if fresh fish is your thing you cannot go wrong.
The stylish Caleta Hotel is located at the end of the bay. One of the venues you can pick if you want to get married in Gibraltar.
It is a friendly beach which normally has calm water, ideal for all of the family.
It is located at the southern end of the mediterranean side of the rock.
A popular retirement spot, mainly inhabited by the over 50′s.
During the summer months the residents there have numerous bar-b-q’s and sing-a-longs. A completely chilled out spot.
ROSIA BAY, LITTLE BAY & CAMP BAY
These are familly orientated places and although the beaches are pebbles and not sand, there are excellent play areas provided.
You will find a spectacular man made waterfall at Camp bay.
Rsoia bay has a grate man made pool, wading pool and snack bar.
Also there are holes in the rock face for birds to nest.
A lovely place for a day out with the kids.
There is parking available at these bays and it is a popular picnic spot in the summer months.
If you like to explore, you can carry on walking through a dark tunnel and this will lead you to the famouse Europa Point.
A souvineer shop can be found there called “The last shop in Europe” where you will find all sorts of goodies.
