Gibraltar Comentários

I camped in Gibraltar 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.
Gibraltar is much less touristy than Costa del Sol. Prices are like in the U.K. and shopping is duty-free.
I keep going back to Gibraltar since I was sixteen (am now fifty-five). It has changed a lot and not all for the best, admittedly. As with anywhere else, though, you need to look at the history and culture of the place -- the locals are really terrific and multicultural. If you want a week on the beach with lots of booze and karaoke, go to Spain. A cheap hotel saves money for everything else you may want to do. I'd live in Gibraltar if I could.
Gibraltar 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.
Gibraltar looks better from twenty kilometers away.
Gibraltar'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.
