looks better from twenty kilometers away.
is a dump at the bottom of Europe. Stay in Spain -- it's cheaper and a lot nicer.
I camped in
illegally -- it was great and really cheap. I recommend the beaches. It's a world away from the scummy port towns that are very dodgy.
is an wonderful place and the people are very helpful and kind. The food is very good although prices are higher than some places in Spain, but the choice is fantastic! Drinks and cigarettes are greatly reduced as there is no VAT tax. The history of Gibraltar and all the fantastic sites to see is really worth a holiday there. You need the time to spend learning about the Rock and the people to get the full benefits. This is a warm and fascinating part of Britain.
is very historic and full of interest and compliments Spain. The only problem with Gibraltar is some of the dodgy finance companies in it, selling football insurance and taking people's money for bits of paper not worth anything. Beware of men in suits and Aussies that want to help you.
's main problem seems to be the British expats found in every bar and restaurant complaining that it's crap and not like England (they do the same in Spain) and the low life Spanish cigarette smugglers stuffing half-dismantled mopeds with cigarettes on every street corner. The locals are extremely friendly; depending on the time of year, weather can be quite warm and humid. Shopping is extremely cheap if you avoid the establishments aimed at lightening tourists' wallets. If you expect Spanish food (like tapas) in a British country, be prepared to pay for it. Historically, the place is amazing. To see all of the tourist attractions (many by appointment with a military guide) you need at least a week in the country. To really enjoy the place (and the beaches) several weeks and an open mind are recommended.
