When is the best time to visit Sao Tome and Principe? Sao Tome and Principe is a place that can be visited at any time. Depending on what you’d like to do there are different times that are best for visiting the islands. December and January are wonderful for birding as birds adopt bright breeding plumage. Trekking is best in the long dry season. From mid-November to early February turtles nest on the beaches, and you can watch the eggs hatching 45 days later. Humpback whales, killer whales and dolphins can be seen off the northeast coast from August to October.
