Accommodation few steps away from the beach

The Gambia is much more than just a sand, sea, and sun destination. Available options for holidays in The Gambia are unlimited. We can proudly say that we have it all, except Big 5 and high mountains.

Being one of the smallest countries in Africa makes it unique and magical. The hidden treasure of West Africa, The Gambia, welcomes holidaymakers, nature and animal lovers, explorers, travellers looking for retreats, culinary wanderers, music and dance enthusiasts, responsible tourists, and more. 


But if you are looking to stay steps away from the sand and sea, we have a fantastic offer of oceanfront accommodation providers in The Gambia to enjoy and unwind. 


We all need some time to rest and relax once in a while. That’s exactly what vacations are for, and a good vacation can help you refocus and come back to work more productive and driven than ever.


For this reason, booking a beachfront hotel in The Gambia is a fantastic idea. Here are three reasons why you should book a hotel located right on the beach: 


 1. Cheaper as you would think

 Especially now, when we are entering the low season, you can acquire amazing deals from the hotels and lodges. This is a time of the year when travellers who prefer less crowded places choose to come to The Gambia for holiday. In addition to that, you have access to the almost empty beach whenever you want without any additional costs and time. By staying in a beachfront hotel, you will also save yourself a considerable amount of money and time by not having to travel to and from the beach. 

Now you are probably asking where to find good deals. 


You can get the best deals by booking directly with accommodation providers in most cases. This is not the case only for the hotels on the beach but in general for most accommodation providers that stay open throughout the year. 


Don’t hesitate to contact places and ask for a special price. Visitors are very welcomed and appreciated throughout the year. 


 2. Fantastic views and calmness 

You will have breath-taking views when you choose an accommodation place situated by the beachside. Relaxing under an umbrella, listening to the waves as you sip on a freshly cracked coconut and read the book you’ve been trying to finish, is the exact experience you can expect.   



Waking up to the view of the ocean every morning as you have your breakfast are the things that can make you extend your stay in a specific area. 


Choosing a beachfront hotel will allow you to do that and more!


3. It is fun 

There is a lot of fun and entertainment that comes with booking a hotel that is situated by the beach. One can walk along the shores of a specific beach. There are also various water sports you can try like surfing and jet skiing. 

Nothing quite tops off a great meal better than a spectacular coastal view. There’s just something about the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean that sets the perfect tone for a light lunch or an evening dining experience. 


You’re there to make the most of your vacation, so you should have access to the beach and all the activities that it provides whenever you want. What a great deal!


We’ve put together a list of some beachfront accommodation providers to ease your search and pick the right beachfront place.
