Located on the west coast of Central Africa, Spanish-speaking Equatorial Guinea is one of the least-visited countries in the world. It has a variety of unspoilt landscapes, a rich diversity of wildlife – including 3,250 plant species – and miles of empty tropical beaches. Stroll the compact city of Malabo with its fascinating colonial architecture, or head to Annobón’s serene coastline for undisturbed snorkelling.
