In the northeast of Sao Tome is an area of savannah grassland with some large baobabs to be seen. This area is particularly rewarding for birdwatching, with different species seen from those inhabiting the rainforest. Within the area is the famous Blue Lagoon, a peninsula with an old lighthouse joined to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. The bay has a deep blue colouration in the right light and is well known locally as being a good location for a swim and snorkel.
