Weather lowdown

Occupying a 7 square kilometre peninsula off the south coast of Spain, Gibraltar is a small but special holiday destination. The unique area combines traditional British cuisine with influences from Europe and Morocco, which is located just across the Strait of Gibraltar. Tourists flock here all year round to enjoy the stunning scenery of The Rock as well as the mild Mediterranean climate. Similar to the climate of nearby Spain, summers are hot and dry while winters are mild.

May is typically the first real month of summer in Gibraltar and the temperatures start to increase. On average, visitors to Gibraltar in May can expect to feel temperatures of 19°C, although high temperatures can hit 22°C on some days. Temperatures drop on an evening, but are still warm at an average of 15°C which is perfect for al fresco dining. Visitors to Gibraltar in May should bring thin, light clothing for daytime wear and a light jacket or long sleeved shirts for cooler evenings.

The hours of sunshine continue to rise into May, with an average of 9 sunny hours a day. With a 41% chance of a sunny day and just an 11% chance of clouds, holiday makers are almost guaranteed bright skies and sunshine during their stay.

The amount of rainfall also decreases significantly in May. After 70mm in April, May sees just 20mm of precipitation spread over a total of 8 days. There's only an 18% chance of rain throughout the month and rainfall will generally be short showers or light drizzle.

Visitors who want to hit the beach can do so in May, with an increase in sunshine as well as warmer sea temperatures. The waters around the coast of Gibraltar are suitable for swimming and water sports, with an average temperature of 17°C.

Where to stay

Gibraltar has accommodation to suit every budget, from low priced rooms to luxury hotels.

Gibraltar City Hotel provides central accommodation located in Gibraltar's Irish Town, for easy access to all of Gibraltar's main attractions. Their discount prices are ideal for anyone on a tight budget. The apartment is fully equipped with a kitchen, a TV and a roof terrace.

On the other side of the peninsula, the four star Caleta Hotel has a more tranquil setting with beautiful views over the Mediterranean Sea. Often noted as one of the best hotels in Gibraltar, The Caleta provides bight and comfortable rooms, a spa and wellness centre and a sun terrace among other facilities. The hotel is also home to award-winning restaurant Nuno's, where guests can enjoy delicious Italian cuisine.

Hit the beach

Surrounded by the ocean on both sides, Gibraltar has a number of beaches for visitors to enjoy. These include both popular tourist beaches and quieter local beaches, so whether you prefer a serene environment or a bustling beach vibe, there's something to suit you.

Eastern Beach is the largest beach on the peninsula. The sandy beach has great views of The Rock and enjoys large amounts of sunshine throughout the day thanks to its location on the east side. Visitors to Eastern Beach can hire sun loungers and catch some rays or take part in some water sports. Diving and snorkelling are popular in the area.

Eating and drinking

Gibraltar has a unique dining scene which combines its many influences. Visitors can find everything from traditional British pub grub to Mediterranean and Moroccan-inspired cuisine. The small peninsula has an array of great restaurants, cafés and bars.

For a light refreshment or lunch, head to Sacarello's. This charming family-run café and restaurant serves some of the best coffee and homemade food in town, including delicious cakes, quiches and fresh salads. Located in Gibraltar's Irish Town, it's a perfect stop off when you're exploring the sights.

Amin Office is a hidden gem, situated down a lane in Gibraltar's town centre. At this local restaurant, diners can feast on mouth-watering Moroccan fare such as tagines, cous cous and lamb dishes which is often named as the best Moroccan food in Gibraltar. The restaurant has a friendly-family run feel where you can relax on an evening.

If you're looking for a place to let your hair down after dinner, Latino's Music Bar and Restaurant is a lively venue located in Grand Casemates Square. The bar serves a great selection of beer, wine and cocktails as well as some food. Holiday makers can dance the night away to some salsa music at Latinos.

Things to do

As summer arrives, water sports also become a popular option in Gibraltar from May onwards. With the sea much warmer, scuba diving is a favourite water sport for both locals and tourists, with the clear water making for excellent conditions. There are many shipwrecks in Gibraltar and the schools in the area will allow divers of any level of ability to take part.

One way to see all of Gibraltar on a limited schedule is to arrange for an Official Rock Tour. You'll get to see all of the most important and interesting sites that Gibraltar has to offer with a tour guide and commentary. From the Alameda Botanical Gardens to the Gala Casino at Ocean Village, an Official Rock Tour is a must.
