GIBRALTAR -April 2001
Gibraltar Emblem Catalan Bay 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.
