Gibraltar, often referred to as “The Rock,” is a strategic maritime hub in the heart of the Mediterranean. It is known as a centre of maritime excellence with several key attributes:

  • Gibraltar is renowned for its role as the largest bunkering port in the Mediterranean. Its Strategic location makes it an ideal stopover for vessels transiting between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
  • The availability of numerous bunker suppliers and state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure for refuelling at anchorage and berths, make it a preferred choice for the maritime industry.
  • Gibraltar’s geographical location at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar, makes it a crucial pit-stop for vessels before they enter the Atlantic Ocean.
