Welcome to Port-Gentil
Gabon's second city, Port-Gentil has a much more laid-back air about it than Libreville. This is Gabon's industrial and economic engine, and massive oil and gas rigs loom just off the coast. But the city stretches lazily along the beach, has pleasant wide streets and a bustling port. One block back from the corniche, Ave Savorgnan de Brazza has most of the banks, shops and restaurants.
Port-Gentil is a stopping-off point en route to the Fernan Vaz Lagoon and on to Loango National Park. You can also access Lambaréné via boats on the Oogoué River.
