Set on a tiny, forested islet off the northern tip of Príncipe, Bom Bom (which means ‘Good Good’) is a place to escape the world without giving up on comfort. The resort is reached by walking across a long wooden bridge from Principe, and its 20 bungalows have a serene and comfortable style with private verandahs and air conditioning. Some are on the beach, others look towards the sea, tropical gardens or pool, and there’s a large wood-decked lounge and restaurant serving locally-caught fish and South African wines. Excursions are designed to make the most of Príncipe’s pristine natural world, and include bird watching, rainforest hikes, trips by pirogue to see whales and plantation tours.
