The British Rock of Gibraltar continues to grow as a top Mediterranean short break destination for UK travellers. Just 2.5 hours from home, its sterling currency guarantees that there will be no costly conversion rate and Gibraltar's VAT free status gives visitors an added incentive to visit the shops. Gibraltar offers a calm and relaxed environment to enjoy either a weekend break or a chance to explore neighbouring Spain and Morocco just a short ferry ride across the Strait.
Best time to visit: During August or September the weather is most comfortable and crowds have gone home.
Gibraltar International Airport or North Front Airport (GIB or LXGB) is the civilian airport for Gibraltar.
