One of a handful of small suburbs to the west of Banjul, Bijilo provides a calm alternative to the nearby capital.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bijilo: Makasutu Culture Forest (in Serekunda) and Banjul (Albert Market, Abuko Nature Reserve, & more). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kotu Beach, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, look for gifts at Senegambia Craft Market, and don't miss a visit to Arch 22.

To see reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Bijilo tour planner.

Freetown, Sierra Leone to Bijilo is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Freetown in December, plan for little chillier nights in Bijilo, with lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
