Sun, sea and sand on a holiday to Kololi
Do you fancy lounging on a stunning beach one day, spotting monkeys in a nature reserve the next and then partying the night away in a lively coastal resort? Base yourself in the beach resort of Kololi on the Gambian coast, and your holiday with lastminute.com can include all of that and more.
Back to nature on the Gambian coast
Considered to have one of the best beaches in the Gambia, the lively resort of Kololi has a wide stretch of pristine sand to relax and sunbathe on, whilst you gaze out over the Atlantic. There is another good beach further up the coast at the peaceful resort of Cape Point. From Kololi’s sandy beach walk to neighbouring Bijilo, or head in the other direction to the resort of Kotu.
Escape the hustle and bustle of Kololi for the day and take a trip to Kartong, a traditional and quiet fishing village that couldn’t be more different than the popular beach resorts. You can go on a bird watching trip from here or simply do nothing but soak up the peaceful atmosphere of the village.
Take a day trip to Bijilo National Park, which is located just down the coast from Kololi. There’s also Salagi Forest Park to explore and see what wildlife you can spot, as well as Abuko Nature Reserve, which is the smallest in Gambia and is within driving distance of the coast.
Hungry? You will be spoilt for choice on a holiday to Kololi. The restaurants in and around the resort offer everything from traditional Gambian food to Lebanese or even a curry. Chosaan Bar and Restaurant serves African dishes, while the Cotton Club has a mix of Gambian and international cuisine on its menu.
After dark head to ‘The Strip’ an area of Kololi that’s packed with bars and nightclubs as well as two casinos. The area is pretty relaxed in the day but takes on a lively party atmosphere by night.
