Praia Travel Guide

Praia is the capital city of Cape Verde, which is off the coast of West Africa. The city is located in the southern end of Santiago Island and has year round good weather. The old town center, called the “Plateau” by locals, is on a raised area overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Around the bay, beaches include Quebra Canela and Praínha, both near the Praínha neighborhood. Shops and restaurants cluster in the Achada de Santo António quarter. The city is divided into various small unofficial districts, the most important ones being, Plateau (city center), Achada Santo Antonio, Palmarejo, Fazenda, Achada Grande, Varzea, Safende, Sucupira(bazaar area), Calbeciera, Terra Branca, Vila Nova, Achadinha, Bairro, Prainha, Monte Vermelho, Achada Mato, Achada Sao Felipe, and other smaller ones. Most part of the city are residential areas, so probably not worth visiting in itself, but worth a half-day exploration if you are passing through to another destination.

The center of the city lies on a plateau overlooking the bay to the southeast. The airport lies a few kilometers to the northeast.

When to visit Praia

Temperatures are mild to warm year-round. Popular times to visit include Jul–Aug and during the drier, cooler months (Dec–Feb). The weather is typically dry and windy Nov–Jul, while Aug–Oct sees the most rainfall. The Kriol Jazz Festival (Apr) showcases Creole-inspired music.
