How to Get There
Principe is situated off the coast of West Central Africa and forms half of the twin island country of São Tomé and Príncipe.
This island, located on the equator, is the closest tropical paradise within the European time zone.
All regular scheduled travel to Principe Island will first land at the International Airport of São Tomé (TMS), and then at the Airport of Principe (PCP).
Principe is home to a UNESCO protected biosphere reserve with an exotic flora and fauna, where you will discover many white beaches, authentic fishing villages and colonial historical sites – and you can also find the place where, in 1919, Albert Einstein’s theory of Relativity was proven.

A variety of guided and non- guided outdoor activities are available anytime. According to the seasons you may watch turtles hatch and observe the whales in the ocean.
