Bom Bom Island Resort
The original, pioneering beach hotel in Sao Tome & Principe, Bom Bom Island Resort opened more than 30 years ago and kickstarted tourism to the small island nation.
The resort is situated on the north coast of Principe and includes the eponymous islet of Bom Bom, connected to the main resort via a long walkway across the water. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the meals are well prepared. A number of optional and included activities are available, including birdwatching, scuba diving and snorkelling.
There are two gorgeous beaches at the resort: Praia de Coco with firm sand suitable for jogging, and Praia Rita, good for swimming and snorkelling.
PLEASE NOTE: Although the splendid location remains the same, Bom Bom is undergoing a complete refurbishment at the time of writing (August 2023) and will reopen sometime in the first half of 2024 – to be confirmed. Therefore, all the information in this section relates to the previous incarnation, which dates from over 30 years ago: new pictures and a revised description will be added as they become available.
