Sao Tome & Principe

Book Description

Marooned off the coast of Gabon, the volcanic islands of São Tomé & Príncipe are a largely undiscovered, uniquely rewarding and safe destination with an exciting blend of African, Portuguese and Caribbean cultures. Explore secluded beaches and colonial plantation houses; spot endemic rainforest birds and learn about medicinal plants; scale the Pico and dive in toasty waters; taste the world's best chocolate; watch turtles hatching and get into the laid-back, 'léve-léve' Santomean groove. This remains the only dedicated guide to this island paradise.
