Sao Tome and Principe - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Principe

Príncipe, with a port capital in the north, and a vast uninhabited forest in the south, you will discover on your arrival, nature rules here. Santo António, its delightful small capital, and pretty location sits astride a river that empties into a narrow bay, creating an emerald isle accented by fantastic beaches.

Imagine raw phonolite towers of various shapes punching through the forest, forming a crazy skyline, and making the entire island feel like Jurassic Park. Hike the walking trails that will take you back to the origins of Príncipe, or explore the old cacao plantations, some overgrown as the forest reclaims its shape. 

Recognising this natural patrimony, UNESCO made Príncipe a World Biosphere Reserve in 2013.  But there is much more to see.  Visit the fishing village of Praia Abade, then stop to enjoy the panoramic view of Jockey Cap Island. Enjoy the view of Parrot Mountain, visible from the township. We take you for a hike up into the National Park, and we know you'll fall in love with the native birds, orchids of every hue and the many varieties of medicinal plants.
