Shutters could be thrown open to the sea air and the view was great across the tree shaded sand to the beach and the sea. The staff team were wonderful and food plentiful and tasty.

If you want to get away from all the hassle of the world go to the Jinack Island. Lodge is eco-friendly and situated in the middle of deserted beach – you will have kilometers of natural beach only for you. They collaborate with locals and fed some profit back into the community.

Away from it all is the island of Jinack. It is a great place to relax and take it easy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Bungalows are good value for money. There is an occasional barbecue and a session of djembe drums. Highly recommended!!! Would definitely come back! Areas to improve: - food (maybe it is better to...

Very relaxing stay at Jinack. Saw dolphins at close range off the beach and also next day on a boat trip to bird island. Rooms are clean and adequate, food is excellent, staff absolutely fantastic. Everyone you meet is so friendly. Would recommend to anyone wanting a break from modern life that doesn't require 5* facilities. Big thanks to Devon,...

I can't be bothered with these revues often, if ever. Let me say this: Jinack Lodge has given me some of the best memories of my life - on a budget, but with high expectations - delivered with a Julbrew by hand by a few of the best people in The Gambia I found after 1 year as a Volunteer...

Visited twice 1st time October 14 2nd time Jan 15. Getting there: 1st time travelled from Banjul to Jinack in the canoe used by Jinack Lodge so you get delivered to the beach in front of the lodge.
