Go along to Tanji - the beach is fabulous (but then they all are in Gambia), but you can experience the fish market.

I have, and I want you to too!

They bring thousands of fish here, prepare them, and then smoke them in open smokers.

Whilst you are enjoying the smell of the fish, you can play a game of beach football with the locals.

I can still remember the smell to this day....
