There’s no better way to explore the quiet north-west coast than swapping the confines of a vehicle for a bike and going cycling on Sao Tome.

We love to cycle from Mucumbli where the owner, Tiziano, is a keen cyclist. With a range of mountain bikes available, and helmets to go with them, you can take your time to discover the sights, sounds and smells of the pretty beaches and fishing villages as you pedal. There are a couple of routes to explore, following the tarmac roads as they trace the coast to the north and south of the lodge.

Best time to go
