During our time in Malaga we went on a little road trip all the way to Gibraltar, a few hours away. Gibraltar is actually part of the UK! It’s a giant rock that forms the European part of the entrance to the Mediterranean, and on a good day you can see Morocco from the point. We didn’t get a good day though. We spent a long time in the car queue to get into the territory (no longer Spain / schengen area), and drove around a bit before going for a swim, and stopping at the point. Afterwards we got a nice fish and chips from an English pub! Classic. It’s worthwhile checking Gibraltar out, it’s pretty interesting.. but not essential.
