Porto Alegre

Porto Alegre, Sao Tome And Principe

Porto Alegre is hardly anything like its Brazilian namesake. Instead of one million inhabitants, this one clocks up just over 500 in total.Instead of endless barrios and sprawling modern districts, this town is a ramshackle conglomeration of earthy huts, stilted longhouses and faded fishing canoes.

Still, it’s got real charm, and is one of the starting points on the Sao Tome whale watching circuit (which runs the length of the east coast). It’s also a great place to launch further explorations along the pretty beaches of the south shore – Jale, paradisiacal Praia Piscina – and the gorgeous reaches of Rolas Island to boot.
