Malabo Travel Guide
Malabo, on Bioko island, is a port city and the capital of Equatorial Guinea. Spanish colonial architecture includes the neo-Gothic, twin-towered Santa Isabel Cathedral. The dark green Casa Verde is a 19th-century house that was prefabricated in Belgium. The Equatoguinean Cultural Centre has gallery and performance spaces. To the south, densely forested Parque Nacional del Pico Basilé surrounds Pico Basilé Volcano.
Despite its status as the capital of Equatorial Guinea for several decades, Malabo’s street network remains poorly developed. Malabo itself has few paved roads leading into it, and fewer than one hundred paved and developed streets. Many of the street names reflect an African nationalist or anti-colonial theme, with names such as “Independence Avenue” or “Patrice Lumumba Road” being main roads. The few large roads not named for an African nationalist ideal or person are named for cities in Equatorial Guinea or other places or countries in Africa, as well as the road leading to the presidential palace. The palace and grounds consume a substantial part of the eastern side of Malabo, and are off-limits. The heart of the city is the colonial cathedral at Independence Place. Many buildings in the city from the Spanish colonial era are still standing. The south of Malabo is bordered by the Rio Consul. Across this lies the hospital to the southeast. To the west is the recently renovated airport. The coastal northern region of the city is pierced by headlands and bays. The largest headland is the crescent-shaped Tip of African Unity behind the presidential palace. Encompassing the entire eastern side of Malabo Bay, it is almost as long as Malabo is tall. Malabo is part of a wider bay that represents most of the northern coast of Bioko; it stretches from Europe Point in the west (home to the airport), to barren lands in the east. Notable buildings in Malabo include Malabo Cathedral, Malabo Government Building and the Malabo Court Building. The city is served by Malabo International Airport, while ferries sail from its port to Douala and Bata.
When to visit Malabo
