The name may not be exactly accurate, but if you're looking for an idyllic beach, look no further.

White Sand Beach

One of the loveliest beaches in the country.

On the road to Luba, just over 25 miles from Malabo, you'll find what is for many the most beautiful beach on the island of Bioko — at least, of those accessible by road. The wide, quarter-mile long beach doesn't do honor to its name, as the sand is not white, but it's light-coloured enough. Completing the picture: the many canoes that are always 'parked' in the sand (some of them almost collapsed) and a small river about halfway down the promenade. Beyond the sand, you'll witness a typically local landscape of coconut, banana, and papaya trees, as well as thatched houses belonging to the neighbouring village of Arena Blanca, which has experienced some growth in recent times thanks to tourism.
