Gibraltar has plenty to offer for an energetic family vacation. Its five beaches offer an abundance of water sports, diving, and other fun in the sun to keep everyone happy and entertained during your stay. No matter what the ages of your kids, there are plenty of activities available at all age and ability levels. Reserve a cheap car hire in Gibraltar and explore everything the city has to offer.
Gibraltar features three established diving schools which cater to both beginners and the experienced diver. They can supply you with the equipment and take you out to all the amazing reefs, pinnacles, and the over 30 wrecks to explore and view sea life. This can be an experience of a lifetime for older children. Check for age restrictions with the different dive shops.
Windsurfing is also great fun in Gibraltar. Enjoy the breeze and the water around the Rock, or hop in your Gibraltar car rental and head to Tarifa, only about a 40 minute drive, on Spain's Atlantic coast. Tarifa, in addition to being a charming town-port, is touted as Europe's windsurfing capital. There are many family windsurfing options and ways to make it very safe for everyone, but check with Gibraltar tour providers for any height, weight, or age restrictions they may have.
You will spot lots of golfers unloading their gear as soon as you arrive at Gibraltar airport, although Gibraltar doesn't have a golf course! Many golfers opt to stay in Gibraltar and golf nearby in Spain, where there are several excellent golf courses just a short drive away. You can do the same with the freedom of your own private car rental from Gibraltar Airport, and treat your family to an afternoon of golf.
