Coordinates: 4°32′27″N 7°59′19″E / 4.54083°N 7.98861°E / 4.54083; 7.98861 The Kwa Ibo River (also Quaibo River) is a river that rises near Umuahia in Abia State, Nigeria, and flows in a southeastern direction through Akwa Ibom State to the Atlantic Ocean.

The river feeds a zone of mangrove swamps linked by creeks and lagoons that is separated from the sea by a low and narrow ridge of sand.[1] Ibeno, on the eastern side of the Kwa Ibo River about 3 kilometres (2 mi) from the river mouth, is one of the largest fishing settlements on the Nigerian coast.[2]
