A wonderful place to head on holiday with the family is definitely the British Territory of Gibraltar. It is a very child-friendly destination that is ideal for travellers who have young ones or teenagers. There are certain things to consider when tourists go on vacation with their children, as they have to plan what to do and prepare for any difficulties. A potential problem is that when travelling over from Spain it may take some time to get there through border control. It is generally a much better plan to fly into Gibraltar to bypass this situation.
Once tourists get to Gibraltar they will find that restaurants and cafes are welcoming when it comes to children. Travellers will feel right at home when they arrive and do not have to plan where they are going, as most eateries will be accommodating. Transport links in Gibraltar are good and tourists will find they enjoy using buses to get around the area. If travelling with a family it might be a great idea to hire a car for the duration of the holiday. A tip for families with children is they should take a ride in the cable car rather than walk to Upper Rock. This is especially advisable in the hot weather, when they should always have water with them.
If parents take their children to Upper Rock they should be aware that there are only baby-changing facilities at the Great Siege Tunnels, the café at the Top Station and St Michael’s Cave. It is also difficult to take pushchairs up to this part of Gibraltar as there are not many ramps available around the Rock area. If there is a rainy day there are a few places to take children including King’s Bastion Leisure Centre where tourists can have a fun day out. Here they can go bowling, ice-skating, to the cinema and enjoy the amusement arcade. There are many amazing Gibraltar hotels to book into when venturing to this lovely part of the world.
The Caleta Hotel Gibraltar has a long list of services such as a top spa, fitness suite and swimming pool. The air-conditioned rooms provide impressive views of the Mediterranean Sea and there is a range of amenities on offer including a telephone, interactive television and luxury toiletries. The hotel has some of the greatest restaurants in Gibraltar including Nunos Restaurant that has fine Italian cuisine and friendly staff members. The hotel is the best place for wedding receptions and celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries. There are many opportunities to get superb Gibraltar holiday deals when heading there.
Gibraltar is a wonderful place for families to head to the beach in the sunny weather, and there are many places to choose. These include the beautiful Eastern Beach, Sandy Bay and Catalan Bay. There is also the historic Rosia Bay that includes a natural harbour and beach area with two swimming pools. There are also many superb playground facilities in Gibraltar including at Europa Point and on Europort Avenue. Both destinations include gorgeous views as well as impressive playgrounds with cafes. A lovely place to visit is Commonwealth Park that is a pretty green space ideal for outdoor picnics in the sun.
