Principe

Beaches · Children’s Museums · Fishing Charters & Tours
Life slows down in Principe, and visitors appreciate the laid-back vibe. Discovered and claimed by the Portuguese, the island was built on the back of slave labor. As such, the island has one main town and a number of villages. Sitting atop a heavily eroded volcano, the islands topography features towering volcanic peaks, tree-lined beaches, seemingly endless emerald green forest, and numerous villages scattered throughout the area, all of which add to the serene vibe of this tropical place. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Principe and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
