Gibraltar Things to Do: 546 reviews and 998 photos
Gibraltar is one of very few cities in the world where the airport is a main tourist attraction. As Gibraltar is limited in land, the construction of this airport required several concessions which are rather unusual. First, the runway had to be extended into the sea to allow larger planes to land. Second, the runway crosses the most important street in Gibraltar which conncets it to Spain. However, it is an impressive sight to see a plane coming from over the water and land. It is even more impressive to see it crossing the street in from of you. You can view this spectacle from both sides fo the runway while waiting for the crossing gate to reopen again. If you want to go to the airport just to see a plane landing, it is advisable to check a timetable. Gibraltar only handles a hand full of flights per day.
Directions: The northernmost point of Gibraltar, prior to the border to Spain
