  • A fantastic view of the city. Offers an aerial view of the entire city of Banjul from the ocean, mangroves, port, bridge and neighboring towns of Barra and Bakau. One needs to climb the stairs all the way to the top but the view is definitely worth it. The night view 😍
  • Met a guy of dating app Grindr here, called Yahya. He seemed a bit simple, and had very bad halitosis. I think he was wearing a bed-sheet and a serviette from the local restaurant so I politely explained I wasn't interested.
