There are no camp sites on Gibraltar, in fact caravans are not allowed on the "Rock" but you can
"wild camp" with a motorhome for a few days in at least three areas. It being Easter we chose to
spend 3 nights in a supermarket car park, which was mostly unused over the holiday the supermarket being
closed. This location was very convenient for all facilities. We also spent one night at Europa Point
and a day at Catalan Bay. Gibraltar is not that big that you cannot walk to most places, indeed it is
possible to walk right around the "Rock" in about two to three hours. There are plenty of dropped kerbs
and there are disabled toilets available in Safeways supermarket and at the beginning of Main Street
near the Crystal Factory. The lower areas of Gibraltar are quite accessible but some shop entries and
the heights present a problem. Most shops have a stepped entrance, the cable car is not wheelchair friendly
and neither are the tour buses. Taxis seemed to be the only way up for the wheelchair user ! We did not
try visiting the upper areas because we found plenty of interest lower down. |
You have to be careful where
you take a motorhome in Gibraltar because of the many narrow roads and the low height of the tunnels.
You can get to Europa Point and once there the view point over looking Gibraltar Bay and the Straits to Africa
is wheelchair accesible. Catalan Bay is also accessible but there is a steep push out
of the car park.
