Ports

Gibraltar is a small British overseas territory on the tip of the Iberian Peninsula. It's situated by the Strait of Gibraltar which separates Europe from Africa, and marks the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic. Because of its strategic location, Gibraltar's history is long and interesting. The Rock on Gibraltar is famously home to a group of macaques and a Moorish Castle dating back to the 8th century.

Portimão is a Portugese city in the southern region of Algarve. Take a stroll along the Alvor Boardwalk, relax on the white sands of the Praia Da Rocha beach and visit the Museu de Portimao for a little history lesson. You can also take a dolphin watching tour or do one of the multiple offered water sports.
