The scenery is dominated by Tarik's Rock guarding the Strait. British territory since 1704, Gibraltar today is popular with its pubs and tax-free shops (on Main Street) and Irish Town. A cable-car offers scenic views of the nearby Africa. Other popular tourist attractions are St Michael's Cave, Siege Tunnels and Barbary macaques (Europe's only wild monkeys).

The Rock of Gibraltar and its counterpart in Northern Africa (Mt Abyla) were known in ancient times as the Pillars of Hercules. In 711 AD, the Moors (Arabs from North Africa) landed there and named the rock "Jebel al-Tarik". Spain conquered Gibraltar in 1462, but during the 1704 Spanish Succession War, it was taken by the British. In 1713, under the Treaty of Utrecht, Gibraltar was formally assigned to Great Britain. Since then, the territory's ownership is a matter for discussion between the UK and Spain.

In 2017, Port Gibraltar had scheduled a total of 257 cruise ship visits and handled over 400,000 passengers. These numbers showed an increase over 2016, when the cruise port was visited 225 times and handled around 350,000 passengers.

On May 4, 2016, was officially opened the "Mid Harbour Marina". This is an outer jetty / wharf with over 500 m (1640 ft) of boat berthing space, minimum charted depth 6 m (20 ft) and fuelling points, making it perfect for super yachts. The new marina is inside the harbour (with sheltered locatio) and offers medium and long term yacht berthing. Pre-booking is also available.

In July 2016 Gorham’s Cave complex was granted UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Shore excursions are planned to showcase the newest attraction. The cave is named after Captain A Gorham, who discovered it in 1907.

Gorham Cave is considered one of Neanderthals' last habitations of in Europe. The Europeans have up to 2,5% of their DNA.

In 2018, the cruise port had scheduled 254 ship calls (booked berthings) and estimated over 400,000 passengers. In 2017, ship calls were 235. In 2013, the port received 179 calls and 278,139 cruise tourists.
