Equatorial Guinea

By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile
If you have dreamt of nature that is still untouched, why not travel to Equatorial Guinea? Located between Gabon and Cameroon, the country will enthral you with its white sand beaches and blazing vegetation. Equatorial Guinea is also Bioco island, opposite Cameroon in the Gulf of Biafra, where the country's capital, and Pagalu, a small island off Gabon are situated.

Our Editorial team's advice

Be careful when taking pictures: although it is officially authorised, it can cause trouble.
Do not display your money or valuable items, people are very poor and it would be inappropriate to provoke them.

pros

  • +Tourism is very little developed, thus the country is still untouched and will seduce adventure travellers.
  • +Interaction with local people is very easy, for instance at a bar counter, while sipping some palm wine.
  • +Some of the world's prettiest beaches are in Equatorial Guinea.

cons

  • -The lack of tourist infrastructures will surprise visitors looking for comfort above all.
  • -It is quite difficult to travel by road in the country.
