Once we are all able to travel freely again, don’t forget to put this disputed little rock of the UK in Spain in your bucket list, for a taste of the Britain with Andalucian feel. These pictures show what things to do in Gibraltar (“The Rock”) as a family in a day or two over the weekend with or without kids in tow.
Highlights? Gibraltar monkeys/apes (watch your bags and pockets!), the cable car ride that brings you to the top of the rock with spectacular views, the multi-use Europa point, and beach play on Catalan Bay… yes, even in the winter.
A mere 61 miles from our home, we’re glad we visited it before the Covid-19 pandemic hit us all.
We visited Gibraltar’s main attractions with views outside and skipped out on museums, indoor stuff and the center of town, which we did visit at night for food and a proper beer at a local watering hole.
Unfortunately, everything seemed to have closed by 8 pm while the Spaniards outside the gate were just getting up and ready to go out for dinner.

Amazing Gibraltar Cable Car Up to the Top of “The Rock” with Music Video
This family-friendly video takes you on Gibraltar’s awesome cable car ride up to the top station, with spectacular views some 412 meters above sea level, while accompanied by a happy, lovely music from ROA to brighten your day. The ride takes about 6 minutes but the whole video is only less than half of that. The trip begins at the base station next to the Alameda Gardens at the southern end of Main Street and ends with the famous Gibraltar apes/monkeys. Enjoy your trip! BIG SMILE! ~free electrons family
See the warm and welcoming beach of Gibraltar’s Catalan Bay in the winter without ever leaving your home OR ahead of your visit, in case you are wondering what it looks like. There is also a link to our Youtube video of my two young kids at play at Catalan Bay on the Rock of Hercules in December.
