  • The island's economy is mainly based on agriculture, commercial fishing and tourism (having beautiful sandy beaches). Much of its population is rural. The island is served by the Preguiça Airport (located between the towns Campo and Vila da Ribeira Brava).
  • The island was first settled by the Portuguese in the 16th century, founding Ribeira Brava - its main town. However, its main port (ferry/cruise and cargo) is the port of Tarrafal. A famine in the 1940s led to major immigration to Sao Tome and Príncipe.
