Airbnb Gibraltar | 12 Best Apartments & Townhouses

June 30, 2021
Traveling in Spain no longer supports, as their business practices do not reflect our own. We have provided reputable alternatives with fantastic accommodation options. Click here to find out more on why we won’t work with Airbnb again.

Gibraltar is perfectly situated on the coast below the south of Spain. Defined by rich history and culture spanning thousands of years, Gibraltar is a fascinating place to visit.

It’s a tiny country, with a population of only around 33 000, but with a lot to offer. Beach days and drinking cold beers in the sun will be the order of the day. You also can’t miss a cable car ride to the famous Rock of Gibraltar where you can see both Europe and Africa! And even encounter a Gibraltar Barbary Macaque monkey.

Another fun thing to do is stroll over the border to Andalusia, Spain. This is by far the easiest way to cross borders, and if you’ve always wanted to be in two places at once then this is your chance.

An Airbnb in Gibraltar offers more variety than the options offered in Gibraltar’s vacation packages! From luxury apartments to more unique local experiences. It is often a more affordable and comfortable option than a hotel bed. You can also interact with local hosts who give the best tips and tricks for exploring the area.
