Sao Tome and Principe

3.7

Center of the World

The island nation of Sao Tome and Principe encompasses a volcanic chain that gives it its distinctive topography. The beaches that ring the islands remain some of the main places to visit in Sao Tome and Principe, with many hidden, deserted strips of sandy coastline serving as perfect getaways for those looking to escape the everyday grind. Much of the nation remains unexplored by tourists and undeveloped, making the lush rainforests and volcanic peaks of the interior particularly atmospheric hiking destinations. The laidback Creole culture of the main towns won't take too long to get used to, but it might take a little longer to get shake off after you return home. Sao Tome and Principe is in Africa. Our Sao Tome and Principe trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Sao Tome and Principe and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
