Beaches in The Gambia


Beach outside Coco Ocean Resort and Spa


This is an unspoilt stretch of sand; and with only a couple of smaller hotels and no beach bars or restaurants it feels deserted and personal.

The Beach at Senegambia Beach Hotel, Kololi, The Gambia


The beach outside the Senegambia and Kairaba hotels offers a wide sandy platform where you can while away an afternoon, or take a relaxing stroll for miles with access to the beach at low tide.


A wide sandy beach, popular with hotel guests in the area. The area outside the Sunset Beach can change quite dramatically depending on the direction of the Kotu stream. Famed for spectacular sunsets.

Bakau & Fajara

This area of coastline is quite dramatic with red rock cliffs interspersed with small beaches. Care should be taken if swimming in this area.

Beach outside Sunbeach Hotel, Cape Point, The Gambia

Cape Point & Banjul

Magnificent broad and long sandy beaches that stretch into the distance, down to the Atlantic Ocean.

Coral Beach Resort & Spa, Brufut, The Gambia


The beach at Brufut is quiet and unspoilt - a real treat with great views along the coast to Bijilo and Kololi.

Sanyang beach


The beach here is fairly sheltered but has some rocky areas with beach bars dotted along the bay - it's a quiet place and very popular for a day trip.

Nearby unspoilt beach by White Horse Residence, Batokunku, The Gambia


The beach here is deserted and it is possible to walk for miles in either direction with only the odd seabird for company. You will find a small beach bar and some of the best sunsets in The Gambia.

South Gambia & Kartong

Further south along the Atlantic coast you can be assured of some secluded and deserted beaches. The sand is golden along this stretch, and the region is populated by local fishermen landing their boats. Be sure to find a secluded spot if wearing swimwear to avoid offending the locals.


Excellent, I have been with Gambia Experience many times and find everything runs smoothly from start to finish.
