Strait of Gibraltar
|Strait of Gibraltar|
The two continents are separated by 14.3km of ocean at the Strait's narrowest point. The Strait's depth ranges between 300 and 900 metres which possibly interacted with the lower mean sea level of the last major glaciation 20,000 years ago when the level of the sea is believed to have been lower by 110-120 metres. Ferries cross between the two continents every day in as little as 35 minutes.
