quiet place with wifi for lone female

I think I've read that wifi at the Bakuto is expensive - so while one person is off birding where would be safe for a woman on her own to get a drink, a meal and some "free" net access? Is there anywhere to get this without being hassled or is it better to give in and go birding?

Noooooooooo. You just have to be firm. Try Poco Loco beach bar. Oscars beach bar. I'm a lone female there for 4 months, seriously you just have to say 'leave me you are disturbing me' .

Head to Neil's bar in Brufut, free, very good internet and they do snacks, great chip butties and cheese and onion toasties. l'm sure they do more there but we only went for reliable internet connection and snacks. No hassle sit in or outside, you can get a yellow cab to the turntable for 8 dalasi and then one down to Neil's another 8 dalasi or offer the yellow cab 50 dalasi to take you al the way there before you get out at the turntable.

BBQ chillis on the strip is another restaurant with very reliable internet but you are likely to be hassled on route to it and possibly whilst you're sitting there

wifi is expensive at Bakotu but I am sure that Dominoes beach bar has it for free-which is straight through the craft market opposite hotel,2 minute walk.

You can get a range of snacks & drinks there too.

Neil's Bar (Tranquil not Brufut. Brufut is over the road or am I being picky?) is on 4G so one of the fastest around. They offer a range of meals as well as snacks and "specials" from D150. As it is away from the main tourist area you will not be bothered at all.

Hi , I will also be looking to do this on a couple of days. My OH tends to go off birdwatching early morning, so I'll probably be in the hotel still (Palma Rima) , but a few tips where I may be able to spend some time alone with out being hassled would be very welcome.

I usually have to persuade him I'm OK before he'll leave me.

Yes go to dominoes, free wifi overlooking the beach and very cheap, not get too much hassle there. Enjoy.

Seafront Residence is the perfect place for a lone female. My Grandmother has been living in the Gambia for the past 12 years and this is now her new place for a hassle free quiet place to relax in Bijilo. The hotel is located behind the Bijilo petrol station and in between Lemon creek and Golden Beach hotel.

For free Wi-fi, fantastic coffees imported from Brazil , Ethiopia and Columbia AND best of all...no 'bumsters' on sight or on their beaches.
