On Kololi’s beach, you’ll find an oasis of peace and beauty at Holiday Beach hotel. Everyday life will float away as you unwind by its pool, one of the country’s largest, and watch some of Gambia’s most beautiful birds fly through the lush, tropical gardens around you. There’s plenty to keep you busy through the day, with table tennis, mini basketball and more. And before you retire to your comfortable rooms, you’ll be entertained every evening with a BBQ and acrobats, local African dance troupes and even fire stunt acts.
Overview of Kololi
Kololi began life as a coastal fishing village. Today there’s less fishing and more relaxing, as the temperate waters of the Atlantic Ocean lap your toes while you stroll through palm trees, along its long, golden, sandy beaches. And if you love water sports, there’s plenty to enjoy on your holidays to Gambia. There’s a whole culture to explore in capital, Banjul, just 18km away. With a warm Gambian welcome guaranteed, no wonder it’s known as the ‘smiling coast’.
Things to do in Kololi
Take a stroll through the gardens of Holiday Beach and when you spot the thatched roofs of the beach bars and restaurants and hear their soft reggae beat, you know you’ve hit the beach. Pick up some locally made handicrafts at the local Senegambia Craft Market and discover history at Unesco World Heritage Site, Kunta Kinteh, an island in the Gambia River. For something a little different, there’s the Kachikally Crocodile Pool with its museum, nature trail and, of course, crocodiles. And don’t miss the Abuko Reserve, one of Gambia’s best bird-watching haunts, as well as for spotting vervet, colobus and patas monkeys as you trail through wild orchids, in Bijilo Forest Park. There’s no doubt about it, a stay at Holiday Beach inKololi will leave you with unforgettable memories of nature, relaxation and stunning scenery.
