Eastern Beach

 

Eastern Beach a sandy beach, the largest on the Rock and is located on the Mediterranean coastline of Gibraltar.  This bathing area is very unique for a couple of reasons.  It extends to the runway of Gibraltar’s International Airport and bathers are treated to witnessing flights landing and departing as they swim!  Furthermore, this unique setting is also dominated by the Rock’s majestic north face, metres away from the beach itself.

The surrounding urban area is residential, with an area close by that has recently been reclaimed and is awaiting development plans to commence. 

There is a beach bar and restaurant located on the beach itself, a popular venue for dining on the beach front.

Unlike most of Gibraltar's other beaches, which are at times deprived of sunshine by the shadow of the Rock, Eastern Beach enjoys sunshine throughout the day.
