The mainland of Equatorial Guinea begins on a narrow coastal plain, edged by mangrove swamps.
From there, the land rises into an elevated plateau of thickly forested hills to its border with Gabon, reaching (in a few places) upwards of 4,000 ft. (1,219 m) above sea level.
The major river, the Uola, snakes its way across the center of the country.
The offshore island of Bioko, volcanic in origin and very fertile, is dominated by three extinct volcanoes. Its coastline is steep and rugged south, but there are scenic beaches and harbors along the northern coast.
The highest point of Equatorial Guinea is Pico Basile at 8,868 ft (3,008 m); the lowest point of the country is the Atlantic Ocean (0 m).
