More Things To Do in Sao Tome:

The slightly larger of the two islands, São Tomé is where you’ll arrive when flying in from abroad. Most people spend a few days on São Tomé before heading to Príncipe, and although it is more populated than its sister island, there are enough day trips on São Tomé to keep you busy for a couple of weeks at least! Sao Tome and Principe tourism are still in their infancy, so you know that you’ll be experiencing the real deal as you travel around the most exotic islands in Africa.

Praia Piscina

This place is really cool, and one of the best beaches in São Tomé. Located pretty much on the southern tip of the island, it does take a while to reach the beach, but when combined with a day trip to São Tomé to visit other sights along the way, this is a must-see! Praia Piscina is named after the crystal clear rock pools sheltered from the waves that make excellent swimming pools and are perfect for cooling off on a hot afternoon. There’s also a blowhole for fun photographs!

Malanza Mangroves Canoe Tour

Well and truly off the beaten track is a relaxing canoe ride on the Malanza River through the mangrove forest in the south of São Tomé. The Malanza estuary leads into the biggest mangrove forest on the islands, which is home to numerous bird and monkey species.

Tours in traditional canoes (expertly paddled by a local boatman) through the mangroves are a real contrast to the other island sights, with excursions lasting around 2 hours as you glide silently on a circular route through the slightly eerie forest. We saw several endemic birds, monkeys, and even a pig! It’s certainly one of the more unusual things to do in Sao Tome and Principe.

Cocoa Plantations

One of the top things to do in Príncipe is to visit a cocoa plantation. These Cocas (plantations) on São Tomé and Príncipe were once one of the biggest cocoa producers in the world, which gave the islands the name ‘The Chocolate Islands‘. Wherever you’re staying, just ask the staff to arrange a tour for you.

The visit will start with a walk through the plantation, meeting workers, and learning about the different plant species, both culinary and medicinal. Then you’ll get to see parts of the production process, including the old dryers and of course, taste the chocolate at the end!
