São Tomé & Principe
Where do you want to spend your vacation?
Do you like crowded beaches?
Do you want to buy pre-fabricated plastic souvenirs?
Are you fond of artificial Caribbean multimillion-dollar hotels?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, São Tomé is clearly not the place for you.
"São Tomé is one of the few places in the world where you can explore a tropical paradise not compromised by mass tourism and one of the few places in Africa where you can wander around in the middle of the night, without feeling any danger".
(Lonely Planet, Central Africa edition).
São Tomé is safe adventures and rich tropical nature: Crystal clear water and white sand beaches where you can wander around for miles without meeting a sole western tourist. The tropical rain forest and endemic species are a paradise for people looking for unspoiled nature.
The islands lie on an alignment of once active volcanoes, with rugged landscape, dense forests and virgin, palm-fringed beaches. These islands provide unspoiled beauty and isolation from the world now rarely found anywhere else.
