Beach of the month: Tanji Beach

My Magazine 2022/07
4 min
Tanji is a village on the Atlantic coast with a strong fishing tradition. It is also where you can get active with different watersports on Tanji creek or at the seaside. Or you can just enjoy one of the welcoming small beach bars dispersed on the shore. Fall in love with Tanji beach.


Tanji fishing centre

Tanji has a long tradition of fishing. When you cross the bridge entering Tanji, you will see the crowded market area, full of people selling and many cars waiting for the passengers. Not too far from the main road lies easily accessible Tanji beach, which turns into the liveliest fishing market, especially in the afternoon when fishers return to the shore with their daily catch. A perfect place to experience the fishing market or buy one of the many Gambian fish or seafood fresh from the sea.

NOTE: Please be careful when taking pictures. Do not take photos of people without permission.


Gambia Kayaking

When entering Tanji from the north, right after the bridge on the left, you will see Gambia Kayaking. A perfect choice to experience a peaceful day combined with a bit of activity on the Tanji creek. Gambia Kayaking offers kayaking tours, boat trips or the possibility to rent kayaks. You can enjoy a peaceful environment while gliding through the mangroves, full of colourful birds. Suppose you want a picnic in a remote spot without any disturbance. In that case, you can do that at one of the islands, easily reachable by boat or kayak.
