Old Rock Pub
Just a small little pub but with character. There is a large wooden bar taking up good part of this narrow little pub. Friendly atmosphere.

The Marinas
There are two marinas in Gibraltar Ocean Village and Queensway Quay, offering excellent berthing facilities, shops, and restaurants.

Gibraltar's Ocean Village is fast-gathering a reputation for being the rising star in the superyacht arena and is now competing with the most established marinas across the Mediterranean.

Queensway Quay Marina is one of the few places where it is perfectly safe to leave your yacht for long periods without any worries. With its impressive backdrop of luxury apartments, restaurants, shops and bars.
