Winter sun, culture and friendly locals
At the heart of the city is Albert Market, a vibrant scene selling beautifully hand crafted goods, from batiks to jewellery to fresh fruits and vegetables. With so few tourists, it is possible to gain a sense of the original African way of life, as locals banter and barter over everything on offer.
The popular coastal beach resorts of Kololi, Bakau, Kotu, and Fajara are all in close proximity. There is one beach in the centre of town, although many prefer to travel to the nearby resort of Banjul Beach, which offers finer sand and an array of water sports.
