Brufut Beach is an unspoilt little heaven stretching from Joseph Pelican Beach Bar to the fishing centre of Ghana Town. Among the quietest and most serene beaches in The Gambia, this is where you can pamper yourself with a relaxing day, cold and refreshing drinks at the small beach bars and the sound of the ocean mixed with the melodious singing of the colourful birds.

Compared to other beaches located closer to tourist concentrated areas, this place is quiet, and only a few people enjoy this beautiful beach. Few bars can be accessible by car, while others have parking spaces on the top of the hill.

One Love Beach Bar & Restaurant

Easily accessible by car or foot. The warmly painted little bar offers cold soft drinks and beers. You can also enjoy a variety of African dishes, fish & chips or chicken & chips.

One Love offers a few rooms for visitors who want to stay and enjoy the serenity of the beach. You can mount your tents as well and camp. They also have entertainment programs such as drumming and fire camping for groups. Sunbeds are available.
