Sao Tome and Principe

São Tomé and Príncipe Floating in the Gulf of Guinea, Africa's second-smallest nation, blends natural wonders with a gripping history. Once a vast network of plantations and a center of global cocoa production, São Tomé and Príncipe has suffered an economic downturn since independence from Portugal in 1975. In the countryside, squatters inhabit once great mansions; in the capital, historic colonial buildings slowly decay on broken streets. Nevertheless, the country remains amazingly safe and welcoming to visitors, particularly ecotourists, for whom the advancing jungle is a delight.

This is particularly true on tidy and unspoiled Príncipe, an island of just 7000 people. A canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, Príncipe is a magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkeling, fishing and birdwatching. Principe is a magical land that time forgot. Come and explore its forests and coasts, its beaches and bays, and let the warmth of its people renew you.

Activities Beyond Praia Sundy’s tranquil bounds, a world of remarkable discovery awaits. From rainforest hikes to wild, pristine beaches, from timeless fishing villages to friendly shack cafes, Principe yearns to be explored. A place like no other, Príncipe is a timeless island of hidden treasures and warm-hearted souls, it touches everyone who journeys here.

Come and find yourself in paradise.
