Can you drink the tap water in Gibraltar?
The US Center for Disease Control's travel advisory recommends avoiding tap water and drinking bottled or disinfected water in Gibraltar (source). Like all countries though, water accessibility, sanitation, and treatment vary widely from location to location, so we encourage looking for specific city information.
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
