The beach are, I would say nice in Banjul. We only went there like two times, there where so much other things to do in Banjul:)! But if we had more time there would have been some more relaxing at the beach.
Large and sprawling, the market was a local affair, we did not see any tourist trinkets for sale at all. The goods were mainly fruit and vegetables, meat, household gooda and colthing. Unlike on the coast, the people took very little notice of us, getting on with their daily business as we passed. We did pick up a acouple of young hangers-on towards the end of our stroll around the market, who were proving to be very persistent and rather hard to shake off. We did not see any other white people during our time at the market, making our visit all the more authentic.
The Arch 22
Banjul is the capital of the Gambia but it isn't the greatest place of the country.
The entrance of Banjul is trough the Arch 22.
This is a monument that remembered when - at 22 of July 1994 - militaries take over the government of president Sir Dawda Jawara.
The Arch is 35 m high and the square around this arch belong also to this monument.
