Gunjur : Accommodation Only
If anywhere captures the essence of the Gambia, it's Gunjur. Tropical holidays don't come much more relaxing than this. Lying along a peaceful, palm-fringed beach, secluded Gujar could be a world away from anywhere and has by far the best most deserted sandy beaches anywhere in the Gambia.
Here, you can laze on the sands, swim in refreshing Atlantic waters and sip cocktails in a friendly thatch-roofed beach bar, all with practically no distractions. When you're feeling more active, stroll along the sands to the fishing village where boats come and go daily bringing in their catches or visit the art village close by in Tunbung or in Brikama a short bush taxi ride to shop in its bustling craft market. There's a museum close by in Tanji and an apiary where local honey can be bought. Alternatively, ride a boat along the serene Alahain River, visit colourful local villages, see the snakes in the reptile centre or delve into the country's forested nature reserves to spot exotic birds and wildlife. And when evening comes, settle into a slow tropical mood, dining under the stars or watching the radiant African sun sink below the waves.
