Rolas

f icon mapaSao Tome island, Sao Tome and Príncipe

Charming island located in the south of Sao Tome acknowledged for its splendid beaches and a monument pointing to the equator, which crosses the island.

The Rolas island lies on the equator, off the southern tip of São Tomé Island separated by Canal das Rolas. The island is home to a small resort, the Pestana Equador.

If you want to just stand on the Equator mark once in your life, Rolas Island can be visited on an organised lunch trip, but for relaxation and to really enjoy the island, a four to five night stay is ideal, longer if you are planning to do a lot of diving.
