Ever considered Gibraltar as a sun holiday destination? May not have crossed your mind in the past but you will definitely want to consider Gibraltar if you’re planning on heading away this summer. You may be a little weary or concerned about travelling this holiday season, however, we plan on putting your mind at ease with the following reasons why Gibraltar is the safest European destination this summer.

Gibraltar is in a great position in terms of their Covid-19 infection rates. As of June 28th 2021, their 7-day moving average cases is 4 – the work and dedication to eliminate Covid-19 has been inspiring and has definitely paid off. To guarantee the hard work is not compromised, visitors from an amber or red list country must have a negative PCR test no more than 48 hours before their flight, green list country visitors do not need a Covid-19 test and the wearing of masks is mandatory to stop the spread of Covid-19.

On another positive note, every adult in Gibraltar has received a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine or are fully vaccinated at this point. Gibraltar’s vaccination rollout and their elimination of Covid-19 is pretty impressive and thanks to their efforts, residents are back living life to the fullest with good vibes! Now that you may feel more comfortable about travelling, let’s dive in and talk about the excellent qualities that makes Gibraltar a trendy, yet safe, sun destination this summer.

So, what are the most attractive features of Gibraltar? The weather is one of their best assets. July is the most popular month for tourists to visit where they can expect temperatures to range from 24 to 28 degrees throughout the day – ideal temperature to top up your tan!

If the hot weather isn’t for you, the Autumn months may be more to your liking – September and October are the perfect months to visit if you want more comfortable and manageable climate.

While in Gibraltar, you have to experience the city’s thrilling and electrifying nightlife. Whether you’re in the Old Town district or relaxing on the marina, there are unlimited bars, clubs and pubs everywhere you turn to keep you entertained and on the dancefloor all night if that’s the type of night you’re looking for of course!

There is a bar or a pub at every corner and you’re guaranteed to find a place to cater for what you’re in the mood for – cocktail nights, glass of bubbly, a quiet beer or even a cup of coffee. The Veranda Bar, located in the Eliott Hotel, is a modernised trendy bar that will happily welcome you and fulfil all of your food and beverage desires at any time of the day.

If there is one thing that we are sure of, it is that you will never be bored while visiting Gibraltar. Perhaps a second visit will be on the cards if you really want to see the area all in its glory and to see all the sites and attractions.

If you’re looking for a sporty, activity orientated holiday you should definitely check out the Rock of Gibraltar, the Mediterranean Steps and maybe a water sport like surfing, kayaking or scuba diving.

If you’re more into a chilled and relaxing type of holiday, the beaches are calling your name! There are plenty of beaches to choose from to top up your tan and recharge in the sun. After spending the day getting sun-kissed, grab a cocktail and a bite to eat in one of restaurants on the beach or on the marina to finish off the perfect day.

Are you a history lover? If so, it might be music to your ears that Gibraltar is rich in history. Highly recommend checking out the Great Siege Tunnels and the Gibraltar Museum where you will be educated on the history of Gibraltar and have this historical knowledge for life.

The list of things to do and see in Gibraltar is endless, you’ll have to go see for yourself!
