How to get to Gibraltar

Gibraltar is accessible by Road, Sea and Air.

By Road

Gibraltar is also accessible via Spain. Gibraltar adjoins the southern coast of Spain at the western end of the Mediterranean. In order to be allowed past the border into Gibraltar you will be required to be in possession of a valid passport. If you are unsure as to whether you require a visa to enter Gibraltar please click here.

The land frontier is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and there are no limits on the number of frontier crossings you can make. There is no charge to enter Gibraltar.

If you are driving to Gibraltar from Spain, take the N340 or the A7 (Cadiz - Malaga highway) and turn off at Junction 119 into the N351 which takes you to La Linea, the border town between Spain and Gibraltar. The frontier is just a five minute walk away from La Linea Bus Station.

It is neither necessary, or desirable, to bring a car.

Although we do have 16 spaces nearby, parking close to the Caleta Hotel is strictly limited to local residents, and all other vehicles left in these spaces will be clamped. Since Gibraltar is only about six square kilometres, it is very easy to get around.

The reasons are not hard to find. Gibraltar is an attractive destination that is being continuously developed not just economically and commercially but also from a tourism point of view.
