Make the most of Gibraltar’s Mediterranean climate and venture outdoors this summer. Gibraltar is jam-packed with outdoor activities for all the family while enjoying the sunshine and topping up your tan. From scuba diving, to visiting the nature reserve, to a dolphin safari and much more, there’s something for everyone to do outdoors in Gibraltar – you will be spoilt for choice! Don’t know where to begin looking for things to put on your schedule? Don’t sweat it – we’ve created a list of a few activities to do outdoors this summer in Gibraltar.

Travel in style and see the sites and attractions in Gibraltar on an EBike this summer. Hire an electric bike and whizz around the town to get some Instagrammable photos for the feed. The bikes are non-polluting so it is a more environmentally friendly way of getting around and a great source of exercise – the best of both worlds! Even if you’re not much of a bike enthusiast or a regular cyclist at home, it’s still so enjoyable and a great outdoor activity.

The best way to learn and discover Gibraltar’s history and culture, is to go see the sites and monument’s that mould the historical stories and chronicles. While the sun is shining, we recommend heading to the Nature Reserve to check out what really makes Gibraltar.

The Nature Reserve is a protected and conserved area where you will find some of Gibraltar’s most historical sites; St. Michaels Cave, Great Siege Tunnels, Moorish Castle, Apes Den, World War 2 Tunnels and many more. The quickest and easiest way to reach the reserve is via cable car which runs every 10 to 15 minutes and only takes approximately 6 minutes to reach the top of the Rock – the perfect opportunity to get some stunning (insta-worthy) photos on the way up! You can venture on this exploration alone or if you would prefer to go with a tour-guide company for the best experience, Gibraltar Rock Tours is a trusted and well-known tour agency in the area.
