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.
Handiwork is very little developed due to the lack of tourists. Shop opening hours: Monday to Saturday, from 8.00am to 1.00pm and 4.00pm to 7.00pm.
Equatorial Guinea: what to eat?
There are very few restaurants in Equatorial Guinea and they are concentrated in Malabo and Bata. Most restaurants serve a Spanish or European cuisine. Beer is expensive. You can try malamba, a local drink made of cane sugar, good and cheap, or palm wine.
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.
