Want a British holiday under the Mediterranean sun? One cheap flight to Gibraltar provides the ideal destination for a holiday filled with all the comforts of the UK, but one that enjoys warmer weather!
That’s not to say that Gibraltar doesn’t have a culture of its own, though; the natural beauty of ‘The Rock’ makes for a remarkably scenic destination. A Monarch flight to Gibraltar will take you to a faraway place that feels perfectly familiar.
Just flying to the Rock is an experience in itself, as the runway is actually stationed across the main road into Gibraltar. Those travelling in or out by car must wait either side when planes want to land or take off.
The peninsula is unique to look at, built up largely of limestone rock. There is no other destination that mixes Mediterranean and British influences so well, offering something for everyone to do and enjoy.
Manchester, Birmingham, London Gatwick and London Luton airports host Monarch flights, giving you access to cheap flights to Gibraltar from almost anywhere in England. The direct flight time to Gibraltar from the UK varies slightly by departing airport:
Monarch flies to Gibraltar all year round, so you can catch an affordable flight any time of the year. Spring, summer, and autumn are the most popular seasons to visit. While winter certainly isn’t cold, the cooler months can experience heavy rainfall and many attractions may be closed for the off-season.
If you’re looking to enjoy an outdoors holiday, the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn may be best, as the weather is pleasant but not hot. There’s enough sunshine where you can enjoy the outdoors without ever feeling overwhelmed by the heat.
Average temperature 17-24°C
5-9 hours sunshine per day
Average sea temperature 18-22°C
Average temperature 15-19°C
6-10 hours of sunshine per day
Average sea temperature 16-17°C
Gibraltar becomes a real beach holiday destination during June, July, and August, when sun-seekers head to the country from the end of spring and throughout summer to catch the hottest temperatures.
Average temperature 22-25°C
10-11 hours of sunshine per day
Average sea temperature 20-22°C
The crowds thin out during December, January, and February, and some of the big destinations may be closed for the season. It’s a great time to visit for those who are looking to make their own adventure and explore the surrounding areas.
Average temperature 14-15°C
5 hours’ sunshine per day
Average sea temperature 15-17°C
The Mediterranean steps can be rather strenuous for the less active, but for those up for the challenge very rewarding. Walk along the edge of the Rock and enjoy breathtaking views that take you away from the hustle and bustle of town. Throughout the walk you will be treated to spectacular views of north Africa across the Strait, a plethora of wildlife and Martin's Cave. While many of Gibraltar's caves are accessible, access to this cave is restricted due to the protected Schreiber bats that live inside! Continue the walk to enjoy unparalleled views beyond the Bay including O'Hara's Batteries on the south side.
Gibraltar is well known for its native Macaques who give the destination part of its a charm and character. They also are part of a never ending legend that says, that as long as the Barbary Macaques live on the Rock, Gibraltar will remain British. During WWII the population dwindled to just seven, so Sir Winston Churchill ordered more to be brought to the Rock from neighbouring Morocco.
The majority of Macaques live on the Upper Rock, but some have been known to venture into town on a quest for food. Please don't feed them! If you're up on the Rock, just be sure to hold on tight to your personal property as these cheeky chaps have been known to pinch a thing or two.
St Michael's Cave
This spectacular attraction is a must see, not least of all as it carries another local myth which says that through a tunnel from St Michael's Cave, the Rock is linked to Africa by a subterranean passage that runs under the Strait.
The Cathedral cave is often used for productions and concerts seating up to 400 and offers an experience like no other. It has been given its moniker because of the mineral formations that surround the walls which look like the pipes of a grand Cathedral organ.
Spain is a stone’s throw away, and it is very much worth hiring a car and venturing out onto the Costa Del Sol towards the cities of Estepona and Marbella.
There are also various organised excursions offering day trips to these destinations. If you can, stop off at Puerto Banus which is located only a few miles away from Marbella and is known for being a celebrity hot spot where the rich and famous cruise along the marina in their sports cars.
