We have wonderful weather and beaches in Gibraltar, for everyone to enjoy, we wrote about our sandy beaches in the last blog but our Rocky beaches also have their charm…. here’s a little bit more about them.
Camp Bay is a small rocky beach located at the southeast end of Gibraltar, facing the Atlantic side of Gibraltar. It is very picturesque, with rocky cliffs as a back drop, you can watch the busy shipping area that is the Bay of Gibraltar from this beach while you have a nice cold beer from the Bar and you can also visit Parson’s Lodge Battery (an old British fortress which overlooks the northern end of the bay.
At the south end of Camp Bay there is a pretty, un-expected and un-natural waterfall exiting the cliff. This cascade is salt water returning to the sea from the water desalination plant.
Gibraltar’s Camp Bay is a lido with two swimming pools for children and has a popular bar restaurant. This is a particularly popular beach for sun worshippers as it is south facing and with it being located away from the Rock itself, it tends to escape any levanter clouds that may be very apparent in the city centre.
In addition, Camp Bay is home to what is claimed to be Europe’s first artificial reef. The reef was created to enhance marine life and is now a great haven for marine life in the area also a popular diving site,
At the south end of Camp Bay there is a smaller bathing area, appropriately called Little Bay, much smaller in size. Little Bay is a natural cove which also provides a little swimming pool for children. An enclosed area is also available for the older children to play some sports.
Both are very popular beaches for the regular local NO SAND beach lovers in Gibraltar, some even occupy the same seating areas year in year out.
Concrete seating and matching tables cater well for much needed Sun Umbrellas. These you must bring along yourselves as they are not provided and a good tip which must be highlighted would be to take Jelly shoes, as the rocks are a little painful on bare feet as you go into the sea.
Please don’t forget to buy a soft ice cream with a flake from the Ice cream Van which is a regular visitor to Gibraltar Beaches, the experience just wouldn’t be the same if you don’t.
Here’s hoping you have found our beach info interesting and helpful and hope to see you all visiting Gibraltar soon. If you choose one of our Tours we will have the pleasure of showing you our beautiful Rock of Gibraltar which we call our home.
As always Thanks for reading.
