Luba, Equatorial Guinea
|Elevation||181 m (594 ft)|
Luba (formerly San Carlos) is the second largest town of Bioko in Equatorial Guinea, having a population of around 7,000 people. It lies on the west coast beneath volcanic peaks and is a port for the logging industry. Attractions in the town include several beaches and a colonial hospital.
The city may be joined either by sea or by a main road linking Luba to the country's capital, Malabo. The road is now accessible; it takes about an hour to go from Malabo to Luba.
In 1999, a free port opened near the town, creating a deep water access for larger vessels, providing oil industry vessels an alternative to the congested port of Malabo for its supply of fuels, water and materials. As of 2010 a new highway was under construction from Luba via Belebú Balachá through the Luba Crater Scientific Reserve to Ureca near the south coast.
