The Banjul Division region
The Bakau Resort is in the Kombo Saint Mary District, in the West Coast Region of The Gambia, and is the nearest holiday resort to the capital of Banjul which is 12km to the east. Bakau town includes the Cape Point promontory, and its northernmost coastline marks the point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Gambia River. It is part desirable suburb, part shanty town and part coastal resort. The coastline is fringed with palm trees however, the beach area is composed of rocky, laterite cliff edges and at high tide the sand can disappear altogether. This is not the case with Cape Point which descends onto a wide beach area.
Local oral history says that the old village was established by the Bojang family over 500 years ago when crocodiles came and settled in what is now known as Katchikally. Today, along with the Sanchaba section, the Old Town is one of the oldest settlements in The Gambia. Among the first settlers to arrive were fishermen and their families. During the colonial era the locality was a desirable area for the British, and formed part of British Kombo which was basically the capital Banjul, Saint Mary's Island, and the outlying coastal areas to the west.
The Cape Point beach resort makes up the north-eastern part of the town of Bakau, in the Kombo St Mary District, in the West Coast Region of The Gambia, and is 12km to the west of Banjul capital. The district is a promontory and its beach area is where the River Gambia and the Atlantic Ocean merge at the estuary. To Cape Point's eastern coastline is a wide seafront of fine, golden sand, while much of its north-western coastline starts at sea level, then, as you head south west it rises up to over 15 metres, and is mostly characterised by laterite cliffs dotted with palms along a narrow strand. Further to its southeast are the brackish mangrove swamps of Cape Creek, frequented by wetland birds.
Cape Point beach and its adjacent area is one of The Gambia's most family-friendly holiday resorts, and here the wide, beautiful strip of sand is lined with mature palm trees, grasses and thatched sunshades. You might also see some basalt boulders strategically place along part of the shoreline to counteract erosion of the sands. Although erratic currents make it unsuitable for swimming, it's perfect for sunbathing, volleyball, strolling, picnics, and making sandcastles, and there's a broad choice of restaurants and beach bars close by. In the country as a whole there are often sightings of roaming livestock, so don't be surprised if you see the odd goat or cow trudging along the sand roaming and looking for anything edible to eat. There are also juice stands near the southern part of the main strand selling various juices such as mango, melon, coconut, baobab, orange and grapefruit.
Sundays is the main day when local Gambians come to the strand to relax with their families or play a bit of football or volleyball.
