Buea is a city in Coastal Cameroon.


Buea is the capital of the Southwest Region of Cameroon. It was the seat of German Cameroon in the beginning of the 20th century and still has some colonial buildings of interest. The city is at the foot of Cameroon Mountain (Mongo ma Ndemi). Since it is an English speaking locality, many locals consider themselves to be Ambazonians.
