Kotu is part of the largest city in Gambia, Serrecunda. This part of the city got its name after the Kotu Stream that flows into the Atlantic. Kotu Beach has the reputation of the most beautiful beach in the country. Here you can enjoy the fine golden sand, swim in the crystal clear water, watch the birds, go canoeing, or just walk along the beautiful beach and enjoy the sunset. Get ready for fairly intrusive fruit and ice cream sellers as well as bird-watching walking tour guides. Sometimes they can spoil the atmosphere for visitors who do not expect such an intensive offering of products and services.
