  • The small beach is located within walking distance 5 minutes by Hotel VIP Praia. He is limited by small rocks and 70m wide. The sand is fine and dark and extends approximately 25 metres into the water. Man can go without shoes in the water. The waves are up to 1m maximum. The beach we mainly evening strongly frequented by locals who swim there to go with their young children. The beach is supervised by a lifeguard and above is a policeman during the day. Since the above just built there during the day often to construction noise. I can only recommend the beach.

  • Probably one of the best beaches in Praia. However I found it was too less space (the beach is quite small) for too many visitors.
  • I like this beach frequented by praienses I lived in Santiago in Praia and charmed me with your afavel people and friend. I really enjoyed strolling through the Plateau and attend the famous Yard of music. Well there is Cape Verdean people. We're together

  • Was there Oct. 17, it is the largest of the two beaches in Praia. It is brown sand that whizzes a part when it's blowing, but otherwise ok, a lot of people some afternoons, not as dirty as it looks.
