Serekunda hugs the Atlantic Ocean on one side and faces the Gambia River on the other, both of which provide an escape from the heat when temperatures rise.
Take a break from the city and head to Abuko Nature Reserve and Makasutu Culture Forest. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Serekunda: North Bank Division (Jufureh & Fort James Island).
