Weekend in Annobon

Introduction

Annobón Island located in the Atlantic Ocean, by the Gulf of Guinea south of São Tomé and Príncipe. The name derives from Ano Bom meaning in Portuguese New Year.   Several islets surround the island and its volcanic origin.   It has a crater turned into a lagoon (Mazafin Lake) and a climate that oscillates between 20 and 30 ºC during its two seasons; The rainy season, from October to April, and the dry season, from May to July; Along with a transition season called Sasá, during the remaining months.

The population the  Annobón island live mostly in San Antonio de Palé, a  10-minute drive from the national airport.

There are two alternatives to travel to Annobón: the first via aeroplane,    on Fridays and Sundays with a duration of 1h and 40 min. Your second option is via Barco; the journey time is three days, we don’t recommend this method, yet it is an option.

 

The city is small. We don’t advise renting a car; your stay would be more enjoyable, walking around to visit the most typical locations on the island. Locals are friendly people always willing to help.

In Annobón, all roads lead to the beach. You can get there on our own. If ever in doubt, ask any local for guidance.

 

The farthest beach in Annobon is Isla Tortuga. A perfect place to snap more beautiful pictures to be shared with friends and family. If you are a good swimmer, we dare you to dip and swim towards the island. Tell us how many minutes it takes you to swim there? We will share the results on our social media platform.

 

During our day trip, we will visit the southern part of Annobón there will find the Mazafim lagoon and waterfalls. If you have enough energy before we leave, you can experience a small sheltered bay of love, situated near the national airport.

 

Depending on your spirit of adventure, we can provide you with a local guide, or you can use our adventure map. But rest assured, regardless of the path you chose to take, you will have an excellent time.

 

On the road back from the airport, before city end and just before crossing the underpass, we can find a small path to the sea, we will make a quick stop there, it has stairs that make it quite accessible.

Then you will be ready to go home with a beautiful experience.

Rumbo Malabo es una agencia profesional y 100 % confiable, lo que se agradece sobre todo en un país donde viajar no es tan sencillo y donde hay que dejar muchas gestiones en manos de agentes locales. Ellos se encargan de facilitar todos los trámites necesarios, de velar por tu comodidad y seguridad y de ofrecerte paquetes con los que conocer la Guinea real: sus calles, su naturaleza, su gente. A veces uno piensa que se va a encontrar con los típicos "todo incluido" de resort de Punta Cana en los que acabas enjaulado y viendo lo que te enseñan los del hotel. Todo lo contrario pasa con esta agencia, especializada en turismo sostenible y que de verdad te lleva a conocer la isla de Bioko como si fueras un habitante más.

I have travelled to Equatorial Guinea with this company and had great assistance and service all the time. The company answers very quickly, provides help to get the Visa, sorted all my papers to go through immigration and quarantine. I visited between the 22nd and 28th of November 2021, great service, recommended.

I really enjoyed the tour of Camasa Finca Sampaka with Rumbo Malabo. The group was small which made the experience even better. Tours like this are important for nationals and tourists so we can understand the history of our country and see what we have to offer to ourselves and possibly the rest of the world. Can't wait for the next excursion!
