This sunny British outpost is an intriguing place to visit. Find cheap flights to Gibraltar and enjoy a great-value break...
At a little over two square miles, this fascinating slice of little Britain dangles from the southern coast of Spain. If it wasn't for the huge slab of rock and the cheeky Barbary macaques that prowl its slopes in search of their next snack, you could almost be convinced that you were in Britain.
The cosy pubs, the red post boxes, the fish and chip shops ... but just take a look around the tree-dotted public squares and shady shopping streets - the best bits of the Mediterranean have soaked into the soul of Gibraltar and together this mesmerising mishmash of culture, architecture and people make for an unforgettable break.
Known as The Rock, or just Gib, Gibraltar welcomes passengers flying into Gibraltar International Airport (GIB). Flights from UK airports take around three hours.
Must-visit attractions include the Upper Rock, where those inquisitive apes can be seen, and the caves and tunnels that have been carved into this slab of limestone. The beaches of Gibraltar are as sun-drenched and beautiful as those across the border in Spain. Water sports and dolphin-spotting trips also help to pass the time on this enchanting patch of British soil.
