Unwana and Ndibe Sand Beaches
The golden Unwana and Ndibe beaches are located in the Afikpo LGA and are one of the state’s main tourist attractions.
The Amanchore cave is in the Afikpo South LGA. It is approximately three metres high and features several narrow tunnels worth exploring.
Uburu and Okposi Salt Lakes
The Uburu and Okposi salt lakes are in Uburu and Okposi respectively; Uburu is the larger of the two, while the economic importance of Okposi is enormous as it is the economic base for most of the rural women in the area. The two salt lakes gave Ebonyi its slogan "the salt of the nation".
Mkpuma Ekwa Oku Rocks
These ancient rock formations are naturally shaped like eggs. They are located within the Ndieze community in the Izzi LGA.
Slave Market/Route Monument
Located in Ezza, this monument is a testament to the infamous legacy of African slave trading. From the sixteenth until the nineteenth centuries, men and women captured in the hinterland were sold to European slave traders and forcibly taken across the Atlantic Ocean to work on plantations in the United States and other countries. The market was originally known as Eke Imoha and at its peak, it was the largest in the area.
Edda New Yam Festval
The annual New Yam festival is celebrated at the beginning of the planting season (in August of every year). Known as Joku,lhejoku or Njoku-ji, it is marked with pomp and pageantry in the state as it is a cultural feast with deep significance. Each community has its specific days of celebration during which a range of festivities mark the eating of new yam, an action symbolic of enjoyment after the end of the cultivation season.
The masquerade (Mmanwu) is a very important and colourful institution. The masquerades dress in colourful robes and masks made of wood or fabric. Although most of the masquerades appear at every festival, some are particularly special and only appear once. According to traditional Igbo beliefs, masquerades represent images of deities or relatives. The identity of the masquerade is a well-kept secret and the roles are performed exclusively by men. In Ebonyi, the festival features the Omaba Ekpe, Awuru and Ogbodu masquerades. Of these, the most dreaded of all is the Awuru masquerade which, unlike the others, was historically a means of providing security against crimes such as stealing, poisoning, and killing of persons or crop destruction: if there was a case of such a crime, the masquerade was consulted and the main suspect was asked to swear to Awuru to prove his innocence. The victim of the crime could ask the masquerades to kill (that is "ili mmonwu") whoever was responsible for the crime.
