#1. São Tomé islands
These islands located in São Tomé and Principé are soothing and surrounded with a great view, warm indigenes, and an ample supply of fresh fruits. What else do you want out of a vacation? If not, rest, good food, and on-point Instagram pictures. It’s the small-town serenity for me.

There’s no vacation in Mauritius without the beach’s therapeutic scenery, but once you’re back on land, be sure to check out Charamel colored earth, a place with seven-colored grains of sand. It’s indeed a sight to behold, so don’t leave Mauritius without visiting this place—you’ll be asked.
