One of the things you must do when in Gibraltar is to take a trip to the Top of the Rock, either as part of an organised tour or independently via the cable car. You can get off the cable car half way up and visit the Apes Den or go all the way to the top. There isn't a great deal up there, just a souvenir shop, cafe etc. but it is the views that you are really going for. Along with a main viewing balcony there are viewing points all around so you can see both the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the Bay of Gibraltar and the harbour area on the other. And of course you get a great view over the airport across to Spain. Look towards the harbour area to see all of the land reclamation that has taken place over recent years to create the new town.
