A country between land and sea awaits as you cross the border into Equatorial Guinea. Divided into two parts, one island, the other mainland, the country offers travelers an amazing sense of freedom and calmness. And this is because, in addition to being one of the smallest states in Africa, Equatorial Guinea is a little known tourist destination that is perfect for some relaxation. The country is bursting with beauty and offers all you need for a perfect African escape.
Because of its geographic isolation, it promises you the exclusiveness of some great beaches and utter tranquility. Enjoy the Atlantic Ocean from one of the many beaches in Malabo on Bioko, the main island. If you decide to head further south on the island and visit the white sand beach of Arena Blanca, your afternoon will be just as wonderful. The traveler here will be amazed at the unspoilt and wild natural setting, with its volcanic hills and lushness; especially if you extend your visit to take in Cope bridge. From there, on a bright, sunny day, you can see the coastlines of Cameroon and Niger, surrounded by the magnificent Atlantic Ocean - a magnificence that keen walkers will discover as they climb the peak of Basilé, which will also offer you a view of the neighboring countries. But although famous for its walks, Equatorial Guinea is just as well-known for its water activities, with sea beds populated with marine turtles, particularly in the Caldera reserve, in the south of the island. Returning to the continent you'll discover an even more abundant fauna, with a stop in the city of Bata and its nature reserves, teeming with life and where you might find yourself in front of a majestic elephant or glimpse a family of gorillas between two groves. You are sure to feel moved by such an ephemeral and eternal beauty. Back in Bata, take the opportunity to stroll through the town and explore the architectural traces of its Hispanic heritage.
