The coastal, sandy beach resort of Kotu in The Gambia boasts an attractive array of hotels. The region is home to a busy craft market, where holidaymakers can source batiks and all manner of wood carvings. A number of good restaurants and beach bars are also located in this area. The Kotu region is very fertile thanks to the presence of the Kotu stream, with the bridge over the stream being a legendary spot from which to observe numerous species of birdlife. The Fajara golf course is also close by.
