Know about this?
Unfortunately, it seems to be not unusual to see a cloud over the Rock, even when the rest of Gibraltar and Spain has sunny and clear weather.
This cloud is called Levanter cloud and comes from the warm, humid Levante wind which blows across the Mediterranean Sea.
When I visited the top of the Rock the Levante cloud formed all of a sudden and it was almost impossible to see anything, but a bit further down the view was still okay. On the other hand it was quite exhilarating to feel the Levante wind and to see the seagulls soaring in the wind.

A bit dark!
If you want to visit Little Bay from Europa point, you can instead of walking the longer way on the road, cut through a road tunnel.
Go up the steps behind the Mosque, across the road and then down the steps on the other side, you then enter the tunnel but it is so dark. It is a one way tunnel for cars so if you are walking from Europa Point they will be coming towards you.
My problem wasnt so much the dark as what might be running around on the floor that I couldnt see, so I stamped my feet loudly as I walked along :-)

Dont park here...
As space in Gibraltar -especially for parking - is at a premium, it may be tempting to park in some places that seem free. This parking lot was right at the marina next to the restaurants but I guess he/she overstayed their time. Am not sure what it costs to get the iron boot of the wheel, as one will have to call and have someone come to release it.

A quick note about Gibralter - Though most places accept the Euro, British Pounds are preferred and you get a better rate paying with them. The end result is that things in Gibralter are very expensive, and when I was there the exhange rate was almost 1 Pound for every 2 USD.
Take some warm clothing..
Although Gibraltar pretty much enjoys year round sunshine, its location can sometimes make you feel cool, even on summer days. If you are going up the rock take at least a warm Pullover or Jersey. The winds here, which are not uncommon, come straight off the Atlantic.
Very Narrow Roads!!
Streets so tiny I wasn’t sure my little compact could navigate through. Getting up the rock was a fright. If you are at all jumpy about heights, I wouldn’t drive up!
