          Hi, I do not think so. It is a stunning beach. Another stunning beach is the one outside Bamboo Gardens Hotel - I collected the most beautiful unusual shells there when I visited in March.

          Why is it so expensive for air conditioning & a safe? And are the bars & resturants expensive too?

          air con is quite a luxury in Gambia. we asked for a fan which is much much cheaper. the hotel pool bar and restaurant isn't too expensive, but walk across the square or go to the restaurant on the beach which is much cheaper
