About the Area:
Bakau is a town on the Atlantic coast of Gambia, west of Gambia’s capital city of Banjul. it is known for its botanical gardens, its crocodile pool Bakau Kachikally and for the beaches at Cape Point.
Bakau is the first major suburb outside Banjul, close to Bakau and Banjul is Gambia’s largest city, Serekunda.
Bakau itself was a small village at the turn of the 19th century and grew in importance as it became a favourite place for private residences of colonial administrators, especially along the beautiful palm fringed beaches.
Despite being a major town, the old village still exists and is run like any other in the Gambia, with an ‘Alkali’ and divided into Kabilos.
Tourism is the most important business activity in Bakau providing a lot of employment, as well as income for the municipal authority.
At Cape Point there are a few hotels on a beach, arguably superior to the main Atlantic Ocean beach, which is home to most of the hotels in the country. in town there are a few guest houses.
There is also a major market along the main road famous for its fruit and vegetables.
Fishing is also another major business activity and there is a fishing port by the town beach, together with a wharf where a market attracts many visitors. One of the few ice plants in the country is located there.
