Holidays to Banjul
Never heard of Banjul? That’s perhaps because it’s been described as one of the most consistently ignored capital cities in the world. Located on St Mary’s Island, where the River Gambia enters the Atlantic, it’s a stunning location with sand-blown streets and fading colonial buildings. It’s the perfect place to get a taste of the real Gambia, and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world discovers its hidden delights.
A man-made beach of soft, white sand. Volleyball is played regularly here, and there are lots of bars and palm trees.
If you’re looking for relaxation, this beach is the place to be thanks to its gently lapping waves and acres of sand.
Well-presented displays of historical and cultural artefacts give visitors a taste of man’s impact on the area.
This architectural landmark dominates the skyline. It was unveiled in 1996 and boasts amazing views of the area.
Leave the confines of the city and take a tour through the waterways and mangroves. Fishing trips are also available.
Learn to cook the Gambian way with a day course, including buying produce at a market and dressing traditionally.
Food to suit any palate and taste is readily available here, from Italian and Indian to Chinese and Lebanese.
A breakfast meal served in tapalapa bread, made from black-eyed peas that have been ground into flour and deep-fried.
Located near Banjul at Bakau, it’s popular with the locals and often features live bands and traditional dance groups.
