Bijilo’s untouched landscape will ensure you feel like you’re relaxing on your own secluded paradise by the beach, but if you do manage to tear yourself away from the sandy shores, there’re plenty of great things to do. Bijilo is in a fantastic location for day excursions, so why not explore the countryside and discover the exotic wildlife like the monkeys at the national park, or reptiles at the Kachikally Crocodile Pool. Spend a day shopping at one of The Gambia’s biggest market in bustling Serekunda.
