Praia Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Praia is the capital of Cape Verde. As such it is a very relaxed city. The number of inhabitants is about 105,000. The old town is called the Plateau and is situated on a rock plateau about 40 m right above the sea. The presidential palace is found here.

There are not many sights of touristic interest in the city, but the nightlife scene is incredible and there are pretty good beaches in town and really good beaches some 10 km away. The market in Sucupira is well worth a visit. Visitors used to touristic areas in West Africa should know that bargaining is on a much smaller and relaxed level in Cape Verde.
