Places to stay in Gunjur
Gunjur is about 45 minutes’ drive from Banjul International Airport and about 30 minutes’ drive from the popular Senegambia Tourist Strip.
As such, Gunjur has a respectable selection of good quality seafront resorts and inland travellers' lodgings. If you really want peace and quiet and want to explore real Gambia, then go for the coastal hotels and lodges that are found on this beautiful region of The Gambia.
The seafront area of Gunjur resort is, at most times, gloriously deserted, save for the odd passing cow and the occasional passer-by. The strand is less geared to tourist than some of the northern holiday resorts and there are a few dotted beach bars and lodges nestled on the edge of huge rhum palm clusters and shoreline bush. Pristine yellowish sand sweeps the edges of broad bays, presenting impressive views into the distant shoreline, and the sunsets are magnificent. In terms of natural beauty, this region's seafront perhaps only comes second to Sanyang, located further north.
