Head to the Costa del Sol and travel on the N-340 till you reach La Linea, ensuring to turn south at the sign out of town. If you travel from the eastern part of the Costa del Sol from Marbella or Estepona, get on the N-340 in the southwest and take the turnoff to reach La Linea. It is better to park your car in a parking area in La Linea and walk to the customs check post, where after verification you could travel into Gibraltar. If you venture to travel by car directly to Gibraltar you will invariably be stuck in a long queue, with the Spanish border guards not making the process any easier.
There no direct buses to Gibraltar from Costa del Sol, with all the main coastal towns connected to the Spanish border town of La Linea. The most popular bus route is from Algeciras and gets you to the border within approximately three-quarters of an hour. Buses depart every 30 minutes from 7 in the morning to 10:30 at night. The bus fare is very reasonable.
Another option is to fly into Gibraltar from London that is a direct flight operated by British Airways. It takes around two and a half hours and there are two flights daily. While these can be a bit dear, there are cheaper flights offered by budget airlines that are very cost-effective and get you comfortably into Gibraltar. If you travel by car or bus after you first clear Spanish customs, followed by Gibraltar customs, there are direct buses to get you to the centre of town or you could travel on the cable car station to see the top attractions from atop the famous Rock of Gibraltar.
Accommodation: If you are looking for luxury accommodation at an affordable price, your best bet in town is the Hotel Caleta, popular with visitors because of its excellent facilities and budget-friendly rates.
It is centrally located and close to some of the best restaurants in Gibraltar, where you can enjoy some of the finest local culinary delights.
Travel in Gibraltar: It is advisable not to entertain the thought of driving in Gibraltar as it can be a challenge. Instead, you could choose to explore the many attractions on foot, by bus, cable car or even a taxi tour. Visitors can buy an unlimited day pass for travel on the bus, which will make it inexpensive to travel around to different parts of Gibraltar. There are plenty of taxis to rent with knowledgeable drivers, familiar with the main attractions as well as the narrow streets and high volumes of traffic. They offer tours of the place with at least four members per group. The tours last for approximately an hour and a half and there is the option for more extensive tours if you want.
