Banjul is one of the most intimate capitals you’ll find in Africa (or indeed anywhere), with just 40,000 people occupying a delightful island setting. There’s plenty to see and do on the island and in the mainland suburbs, and the city is unsurprisingly famed for its wonderful sandy beaches.
Don’t forget to take in the African Heritage Museum, with its amazing collections of local art and statues, the 35 metre-high Arch 22, offering stunning city views, the State House, the Court House and bustling Albert Market. There are also some outstanding places to eat, with the city being known for its excellent seafood.
