São Tomé and Príncipe, small islands east of Gabon, are part of a volcanic chain, though are no longer volcanically active. Known as the Chocolate Islands, they were once the world’s largest chocolate producer, and continue to be a destination for exploring the cacao varietals. The islands are rich in biodiversity due to their pristine rainforests and healthy reef systems. There are numerous dive sites, home to rays, nurse sharks, eels, large grouper, and barracuda.
