Neves is a small town on the north west coast of São Tomé Island in São Tomé and Príncipe. It is considered a likely location for a future deep water port. Currently, the city does not have a dock or pier capable of receiving ships. Neves is home to the few industrial facilities on the island, such as the petroleum terminal and the brewery. The fuel terminal receives fuel by floating a hose out to ships at anchor, and pumping the fuel ashore. Neves is linked to the capital with a highway. The highway almost encircles the island, which is the largest island in São Tomé and Príncipe. The majority of the population are urban and Neves is the second largest city on the island of Sao Tome.
