Things to Do & Local Attractions

  • One of West Africa's most stunning regions, the Gambia is situated on the Atlantic Coast and is blessed with miles of palm-fringed white sand beaches. If you ever tire of lazy beach days, there are safaris, eco-tourism expeditions and national parks to enjoy, as well as water sports and general sightseeing. 
  • Ocean Bay Hotel and Resort is located near to a number of unique attractions that should not be missed. For example, the Kachikally Crocodile Pool is a must-see.
  •  Makasutu Forest Park is also nearby, and the hotel can organise a jeep tour or walk through the forest, followed by a traditional African lunch.
  • Don't miss James Island, where  kidnapped slaves were kept before being transported to America and Europe. An informative museum and reconstructed slave house bring this chilling chapter of history to life.
  • The hotel can also organise city tours of Serrekunda, taking in its craft market, the Banjul National Museum, Gambian Art Gallery and the Tanji Birdwatching Forest. 
  • These excursions are perfect for groups.
