Janjanbureh or Jangjangbureh is a town, founded in 1832, on Janjanbureh Island in the River Gambia in eastern Gambia. It was formerly known as Georgetown and was the second largest in the country. It is now the capital of the Central River Division and is best known as home to Gambia's main prison. The Wassu stone circles lie 22km northwest of Lamin Koto, on the north bank across from Janjanbureh.

The island is known locally as McCarthy Island, and is located in what used to be called McCarthy Island Division. The island is accessed by dedicated pull-ferry from the south bank, and small boat ferries or government ferry on the north bank.

Janjanbureh is also the name of the district in which the town of Janjanbureh is located.
