Sao Tome and Principe A-Z
The Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe is an island nation in the Gulf of Guinea. Discovered by Portugal in the 15th century, the two archipelagos still speak Portuguese as their official language.
One can explore rainforests, coral reefs, and numerous kilometers of beach or choose to relax by the waves and let an afternoon slide by in peace.
What makes Sao Tome and Principe such an intriguing destination is the fact that much of the landscape has remained unchanged, despite four centuries of inhabitation. This beauty is perfectly exampled within Obo National Park. You can go birdwatching, find secret waterfalls, and see over 100 species of orchids. Climbers will love the chance to scale Pico de Sao Tome, which stands 2024m tall.
Offshore is a wide diversity of marine life. The coral reefs around the archipelagos are teeming with life, a respite from the waters that are 2000m deep between the islands and the African continent. Snorkeling and diving allow visitors to interact with sea turtles, dolphins, and tropical fish. Experienced divers will enjoy exploring the underwater caves.
Fort Sao Sebastiao is another exciting location to enjoy. Built in 1575 to fortify the island, Sao Tome and Principe refurbished the fort in 2006 and it was turned into a national museum.
Sao Tome and Principe offers cool sea breezes, plenty of space to explore, and boutiques filled with hidden gems. Make your way here and experience island life in the most relaxing way possible.
