Here visitors can experience a vibrant buzz of culture and the neighbouring resort of Kololi offers bustling markets and a vivacious nightlife, complementing the atmospheric serenity of Bijilo.

After a short transfer of just fifteen minutes from Banjul Airport, visitors will arrive at the newest resort in Gambia.
