The Osprey Beach Club

The Osprey Beach Club is situated on the beautiful and tranquil Sanyang beach in Gambia. This is still one of the most beautiful, yet unspoilt beaches that Gambia has to offer. The Scottish Fish Eagles, commonly know as the Ospreys, still migrate to the quiet and sheltered beach every year, giving this restaurant the inspiration for its name. Sanyang is a quaint fishing village in the South of the capital Banjul, Gambia. It is a little known tourist destination, but is only one hour's drive from the capital Banjul. The beach itself is truly stunning, white sand that goes on for miles with a few bars and restaurants offering a very laid back setting for relaxing and simply enjoying your Gambian trip. It offers the fantastic and truly inspirational experience of watching the Gambian sunset from one of its many newly constructed beach huts, or you could merely laze around and soak up the ambiance on one of the 'hassle free' sun beds under the coco palm trees. If you're feeling hungry you may wish to sample some of the excellent Gambian food. There is even a fresh water shower for you too cool off under.

If peace, quiet and tranquillity are what you are about, then this is definitely the place for you. There are some sporting activities to be enjoyed if you are feeling more energetic, such as Volley Ball or Quolts for example. There are approximately 4 miles of this truly exotic white sand, perfect for strolling along in the sunshine. Shopping is another option, there is a fixed price Gambian gift centre for you to browse if you would like a change from the beach.

The service at the Osprey Beach Club, Gambia, is second to none. There is always someone on hand to bring you a cold Heineken beer (which seems to be the European branded beer choice on the menu), or chilled soft drink, or simply to pamper you with your food choice from the extensive menu. This menu mainly consists of fresh seafood, the beautifully prepared grilled fish or lobster will have been caught off the Sanyang beach just a few hours earlier by the local fishermen. You can actually walk along the beach and watch them haul their freshly caught fish and bring it right up onto the beach, in their long wooden Kenufs, (these fishing boats are hand built buy the fishermen themselves). This traditional technique of catching fresh fish has remained unchanged for centuries..

Fresh fish is the main choice on the menu, although you can also order lobster, chicken, chips and salads; with a selection of chilled drinks available, both beer and soft drinks are on the menu. There are also snacks available, egg sandwich, onion soup, omelette's and garlic bread - ranging in price from around 75.00 Dalasi for an egg sandwich to 65.00 Dalasi for a plain omelette. Expect to pay around 550.00 Dalasi for grilled lobster, which will come served with chips and is dressed in a garlic sauce. If you would like to wash it down with a bottle of either red or white wine, this will cost you around 350.00 Dalasi. Heineken beer will cost around 45.00 Dalasi; whereas if you choose the Gambian brewed beer, Julbrew, it will cost around 30.00 Dalasi. Julbrew is brewed in Gambia in Banjul, the capital and this is the only brewery in Gambia. A soft drink, such as Fanta or Vimto will cost around 20.00 Dalasi. If spirits are your choice then the price is approximately 40.00 Dalasi for either Vodka or Brandy.
