The Gambia & Senegal - Banjul & Atlantic Coast Resorts & Serekunda (Chapter)
This is the Banjul and Atlantic Coast Resorts & Serekunda chapters from Lonely Planet's The Gambia & Senegal guidebook.
Often overlooked, and more than a little sleepy, Gambia's capital Banjul is still a fascinating destination. Take a day a two to stroll the sand-blown streets of the old town or hone your haggling skills at the lively Albert Market. Want to escape the city? Lined with beaches and built up with a staggering selection of hotels and restaurants, the 10km stretch of coast from Bakau to Kololi offers everything for a relaxing seaside holiday.
- smell the spices and drown in colour among the rickety stalls of Albert Market
- dig your toes into the replenished sands of Kotu Beach and watch the birds at the stream
- climb the giant structure of Arch 22 to get a view over The Gambia's forgotten capital
