              Both Worlds is located on the Mediterranean side of Gibraltar which means you have the sunrise to wake up to. There are four levels leading down to the beach, each level faces the sea with a variety of balconies. Nearby is Catalan Bay a small fishing village with local fish restaurants. Gibraltar is very easy to travel around and there is a good local bus service from the complex every half hour into the town market place and return. Main Street has a variety of duty free shops, restaurants, banks and a post office. There are two marinas Queensway Quay and the new Ocean Village Marina which has a lively atmosphere with a casino, several bars and restaurants. Europa Point is the most southern point in Europe and is located a short ride from Both Worlds. Gibraltar has a British Heritage which goes back hundreds of years and can be seen all over town. You can take a Rock Tour and visit the famous Barbary Apes Den, St Michael's cave and the Tunnels. For the more adventurous there are the Mediterranean steps to climb up to the top of the rock,or take a Dolphin cruise, Tangiers is only a short ferry boat sail away. The Alameda botanical gardens located near the cable car is worth a visit as the flora and fauna are both colourful and plentiful. Gibraltar has something for everyone.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We have we always wanted to buy a property in Both Worlds as it has many fond memories for us. We lived and worked at Both World in the 1970's when it was a hotel and realised how special the place was, when the opportunity came to purchase we did not hesitate and have loved coming back to our roots.

              Why the Owner Chose Gibraltar:
              The apartment is situated on the lower level so closer to the beach. It is only one of two units with a terraced garden and private patio. It is gated so private and safe. The views over the med are spectacular with the sunrises you capture the best of the day.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Private gated access only to guests. Not overlooked and with a fantastic panoramic view of the med.
