Nestled at the meeting point of the Gambia River and the Atlantic, the small resort town of Bakau draws visitors with its palm-lined beaches, lively marketplaces, and friendly, welcoming local community.
Step out of the city life by going to Katchikally Crocodile Pool and River Gambia National Park. Visit Roman Catholic Cathedral and King Fahad Mosque for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bakau: Sanyang Main Mosque (in Sanyang), Kartong (Lemonfish Art Gallery & The Reptile Farm) and Makasutu Culture Forest (in Serekunda). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Kotu Beach, stroll through Bijilo Forest Park, cast your line with a fishing tour, and make a trip to Arch 22.

To find maps and other tourist information, use the Bakau trip maker app .
