What’s the weather like in Gambia in March?
Located on the west coast of Africa along the Atlantic Ocean, Gambia has a subtropical climate with predictable dry and rainy seasons. With lovely sunshine and warm sparkling seas, March is the perfect month to relax on Gambia’s white sand beaches. At this time of year the days are long with beautiful clear skies, while the dry season ensures any rain is minimal and short-lived. In the hottest part of the day, temperatures can get very high, so make sure you seek shade between 11am and 3pm.
In the capital city, Banjul, temperatures can reach as high as 34°C, so you’ll need to use a generous amount of high factor sun cream and stay well hydrated. If you’re visiting the coastal regions, the sea is a balmy 26°C, perfect for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving. With 12 hours of daylight, there’s plenty of time to make the most of your holiday in this subtropical African country, whether you’re relaxing on the beach, trying out water sports or exploring further inland.
