Getting Around Equatorial Guinea
Punto Azul (www.flypuntoazul.gq) and Ceiba Intercontinental both fly between Malabo and Bata.
Side of the roadRight
Roads are good on the whole and traffic is light. Police and military roadblocks are common; you may need to show your passport, driving licence and/or vehicle registration and explain your reason for travelling.
Not all roads are paved, although the majority are.
You can hire cars in Malabo and Bata, but it's expensive.
Bush taxis connect Malabo with the island's two other main towns, Luba and Riaba, and also run from Bata to Mongomo and Ebebiyin; they can be hired hourly or daily.
There is a ferry between Malabo, Bata and Douala. The trip takes about 12 hours.
