The climate of Kotu Beach (Gambia)
Kotu Beach or Kotu Point is located in the western part of Gambia on the Atlantic coast. Kotu is a small but increasingly popular tourist resort. Kotuís popularity is rising because it is situated in the vicinity of a mangrove forest with a unique bird population and because of the wide beaches with palm trees. Between the palm trees and the wide beaches small lagoons have formed giving you the idea you have your own private beach. The nightlife here is not spectacular. However, there are several bars and restaurants in the vicinity of the hotels.
Kuto has a tropical savannah climate with a distinct rainy period. This period is from the second part of May till the second part of October with August as the wettest month. During the rest of the year it is pleasantly warm here with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius every now and then. However, this doesnít happen often because of the tempering effect of the northeasterly trade wind. In general days are sunny during this period. During the evening a dry and cold breeze blows in Kuto.
