If you are looking for chilled beach vibes in front of an amazing ocean view, and for a fine cuisine accompanied by refreshing cocktails, Playa del Sol will satisfy all of your desires. High comfort and excellent service will guarantee you a true holiday feel in this little piece of heaven that opened its doors to locals and tourists just a few months ago. The perfect spot for a splendid relaxing day on the beach, with white sand, clear waters, palm trees and succulents making a gorgeous backdrop for this cosy bohemian beach bar and restaurant, where an elegant white colour decorative scheme harmonises perfectly with dazzling natural elements.

From its location at the tranquil end of Kotu, Playa del Sol has all the ingredients for an excellent day of leisure and pampering.

The business has already carved out a name for itself as an outstanding beach restaurant, offering superb Mediterranean and Continental cuisine, with a dash of Italian and Asian, to be enjoyed both indoors, in the spacious and ventilated restaurant's parlour, or outdoors. There also is a terrace for the more private customers, large rustic style wooden tables right on the beach with comfortable cushions, wooden swings, sunbeds, and stylish balineses cabanas. Signature dishes range from exceptional seafood and fish to meats and pasta. Besides this, the kitchen offers a variety of fresh salads, sandwiches, and light snacks too.

The owner, young and charming entrepreneur Miss Bensouda, comes from a family with a long tradition in the industry and a strong passion for good food, two elements that make a perfect combination.

You'll enjoy the small-scale intimacy, cleanliness and general airiness. Whether you drop in for a wholesome breakfast, a lunch on the terrace, or a romantic sunset dinner under the stars – you will be more than pleased by this exceptional culinary experience.

Families are always welcome. This beach restaurant is a sought-after venue for those unique life moments, ensuring a flawless day for yourself and your family. 

Also, Playa Del Sol can host all types of occasions, from birthday parties to corporate events or weddings, with an experienced team who will always ensure that every single detail is taken care of. 

So just relax and sip a delicious cocktail, watch the sunset while lying on a hammock, and make your time in the smiling coast of  Gambia even more enjoyable....welcome to Playa del Sol.
