Why do people keep saying that Brufut is too far out?
It's less isolated IMO than Banjul. To get a taxi to the strip is only D100 + (that all depends on your haggling skills! and the bush minibuses are even cheaper and a real taste of local life) and only about 5-10 mins, closer than Cape Point to the strip. There are bars and restaurants (ok not many!), Courtyard, Pandoras Box, Tranquil cafe, Hibiscus house/blue bar, Elephant House, Dolphin supposed to be opening soon (come on Heledd, where have I missed?). Huge supermarket opening shortly, markets to buy fruit from.
IMO it's beach is beautiful - much nicer and less hassle than further up the coast - lots of small friendly (not hassly) beach bars. You can walk thru villages and get a real taste of local life.
Come on guys, Brufut is hardly in the middle of no-where!
