A little bit difficult to find the start of the path, and we had a bit of similar confusion near the top when there appears to be a dead end - it isn’t but the path is not entirely obvious. It’s a mixture of steps...More

Highly recommend trek up the Med steps, although you have to get a clear day of which there are normally quite a few. You are guaranteed lovely views from the upper rock. Take your time and make the most of the scenery.

Mediterranean Steps is definitely the most pristine and memorable way to get to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar. The whole path from the ticket counter to the top takes between 45 and 60 minutes, and is steep at times. It is not exposed,...More

Strenuous but worth every gasping step! The views across the Med are second to none. Its steep and the steps are often sloping paths but I've managed it several times now and I am a lot less than fit. No good for walking disabilities though...More

The price of entry to the Mediterranean Steps has increased 1000% (for walkers), maybe more for people who do not arrive on foot. It used to be 50p entrance and is now £5. £12 for non walkers.

While the remotely accessed views on the east side of the Rock of Gibraltar are lovely, this hike that goes from O'Hara's Battery at the top, down many crumbling steps and rocks and then levels out (somewhat) and takes you around the east side of...More

Amazing walk off the beaten track, challenging at times but worth it just for the views and the sense of achievement once done. My partner and I walked up and both were apprehensive after reading some reviews and not having the best head for heights...More

Yes you cam take dogs on the Med Steps but it's not recommended as you might bump into some macaques and the monkeys like to attack dogs. So better to go without a dog.
