If you love a quietude moment then Sao Tome and Principe is the resort for you. This country will reverse you with a pervasive mood of relaxation that anchors its atmosphere enhanced by the relaxed vibes and the Portuguese creole flavor. Don’t forget that nature is a blessing to this country and the laid-back sensation or mood largely culminates from the natural attractions and long ending sandy beaches.

The other fascinating feature you can bump into is the turtle and whale watching, although seasonal but can leave you with unforgettable memories and a moment to recall.
