Kololi could probably be called the heart of the tourist industry in The Gambia with a selection of excellent hotels and some of the country's best restaurants.
There are a large number of places to eat serving a variety of cuisine styles on the Kololi strip - you can get anything from an excellent curry, a Lebanese dish or a more traditional Gambian meal. There are two casinos on the strip not to mention a whole host of bars and clubs - all of which throb into the early hours. The strip also boasts banks & exchange bureaus, internet cafes and shops. It is generally fairly relaxed in the day and really comes into its own during the evening and night.
The beach outside the Senegambia and Kairaba hotels continues to suffer from erosion due to the strong Atlantic currents. Although there is still some space for sunbeds, there is a drop to sea level with steps outside The Kairaba hotel linking the levels. You can walk along the beach here at low tide, either up to Bijilo or along to the Kotu area.
