The Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Spain in Europe from Morocco in Africa. The two continents are separated by 7.7 nautical miles (14.24 km) of ocean at the strait’s narrowest point.

The British overseas territory of Gibraltar is visible on the northern shores of the strait as a pointed peninsula east of a rounded bay. Moving around the coast to the west, the Guadalquivir River can be seen discharging greenish sediments.
