São Tomé is the capital city of São Tomé and Príncipe and is by far the nation's largest town. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sao Tome: Museu do Mar e da Pesca Artesanal (in Morro Peixe), Roca S.Joao dos Angolares (in Sao Joao dos Angolares) and Bombaim Waterfalls (in Bombaim). There's much more to do: head outdoors with Praia Piscina, take in the dramatic scenery at Cascata de Sao Nicolau, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia dos Tamarindos, and take in the dramatic natural features at Pico Cao Grande.
