Gibraltar has more than 300 days sunshine a year and therefore the beaches are very popular. Even in January it is sometimes possible to pick up a tan. There are four main public beaches
By far the largest beach, and with sunshine from early hours till sunset, Eastern Beach has always been one of the most popular tourist beaches.
This small beach is reminiscent of a Spanish fishing village, with great sea food and a beautiful hotel over looking the sea.
Sandy Bay and Western Beach are less frequented by tourists, but also popular with locals.
