Gibraltar’s mild, sunny climate is unchanging, but the territory’s raised financial profile has come with upgrades to infrastructure and to lifestyle. A modernised airport and three new deep water marinas, new restaurants and, for retail enthusiasts, new retail brands reflect the economy’s dynamism.
Besides scuba, yachting and even skiing a few hours away in Spain’s Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar also offers families a secure, stable environment to call home. A variety of faith-based and secular schools provide education in English from nursery to college level. Higher education is available at the University of Gibraltar, or undertaken elsewhere, with Gibraltar’s students in the UK funded by the territory.
Numerous daily flights to and from the UK and elsewhere in the EU make international connections simple. The flight time to London is 2.5 hours. Malaga airport is accessible by car, as is Marbella, Sevilla, Sotogrande and Tarifa in Spain. Morroco is a short yacht or ferry crossing away.
