What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

Karaoke is available at at least three restaurants. There is a Sofitel spa & resort beside the nearest beach (20-30 minutes away). There are also a couple of other beaches on the island and others on the mainland. There is also a big sea turtle nesting season that brings students from Drexel University in Philadelphia to do research at a beach with black sand and waterfalls called Ureca. Also, there's a volcano (Pico Basile) that you can hike. Both of these destinations require a free permit from the Ministry of Tourism that the CLO facilitates. - Aug 20, 2017
As mentioned above, Malabo is a make your own fun type of place. Highlights of the Island include the Sipopo Beach, Moka (where there are two guided hikes available), and hiking/camping in the southern part of the Island. - Sep 7, 2014
