Top 6 reasons to visit Sao Tome and Principe

Like you, we love getting out and doing things while we’re on holiday which is one of the reasons why we fell so in love with Sao Tome and Principe.

These tiny tropical islands of Sao Tome and Principe are found on the equator, in the Gulf of Guinea.  Despite their small size – jointly covering 1001 sq km, around three quarters the size of Greater London – the islands pack a big punch in terms of the variety of activities you can enjoy while staying in comfortable accommodation ranging from luxury tented Eco villas to colonial plantation houses and beachfront bungalows.

Here are a handful of our top reasons to visit Sao Tome and Principe:
