Tel no: +220 9941284
Beach Hotel Craft Market, or BB Bendula for short, was
established back in the year 1975 to formalize the activities
of women selling their home made baskets to tourists
on Kotu Strand beach.
Then an international organisation donated purpose built
market structures adjacent to the beach. This Bendula
was later extended in size in 2009 to allow for a new
total of 41 craft stalls.
You can find wooden drums, necklaces, African tie dye
clothing and hats, paintings, calabash gourds, balafons,
and even stuffed toys, sunglasses, baseball caps.
Go down the Badala Highway and down towards Kotu beach.
The Bendula market is just after the Kombo Beach Hotel
on your left.
8am till late depending on each owner.
