Principe: Praia Banana

A hidden gem of a beach – Praia Banana – is located in a northern bay of the island of Principe beneath the high forests cliffs that you have to descend or drive down a winding road to get here. This is the beach where the famous Bacardi commercial was shot. The beach is small, its golden crescent of sand shaped like a banana, and the water color is amazing aquamarine and crystal clear, while hundreds of coconut palms sway above.
