Mission São Tomé e Príncipe, day 09. This is Santana Club's beach, on the east cost of São Tomé, 15km out of the capital city. Beautiful resort, well integrated with the forest, the cliffs and the bay. Loved the light, the colour of the water, the tropical gardens and the panoramic views over the ocean and Santana islet. A good place to spend a week with Alexandra.
São Tomé e Princípe is an African country in the Gulf of Guinea, right on the Equator. A former colony of the Portuguese Empire, the island of São Tomé offers dramatic landscapes with torrents and waterfalls on its slopes, luxuriant mountains which culminates in Pico de São Tomé (2,024 m), sheer cliffs over the sea, as well as huge plantations (café, cacao) from the colonial era, primary rainforests filled with exotic birds, butterflies, black snakes and lush vegetation
