It's a nice beach and is thankfully being kept clean. Water is practically lukewarm as February is a hot month in Praia. Use plenty of sunscreen.

One of the best beach in Praia, there is a very nice restaurant inside of the beach that people can heat and drink. Best view too!

very windy . the sand blast your body and you can not stay without head cover.
beach was clean but not white sand.
the Terasse Bar/Restaurant was nice though. Good beer.
Water was super! not crowdy. take a taxi from city center. Dont pay more than 1 us per person.The other beach , write in the center has no restaurant/ bar and looks not so nice.
From bank in the center you turn left and then go down stairs and there is the other beach. We have seen that one and then took a taxi /short ride to Prainha Beach. it was worth it.

It used to be the best beach in Praia until the big building (a hotel to be) spoiled the overall atmosphere (in my humble opinion)

They're clearly making an effort to keep this beach clean and make it as attractive as possible and it's working. It's in a protected bay so a great place for families with kids and swimmers who'd rather not attempt the open ocean. A fairly easy stroll from the city centre.

This is one of the two best beaches in the Santiago island of Cape Verde. It is wide, with volcanic dark sand. There are many rocks, but there are places where one can get into the water safely. There are some bars and restaurants nearby, and a lifeguard tower, although no lifeguard was on duty in February.
There is no shade. One can rent a boat at the edge of the beach.

That means, there is not so much choice when you look for a beach in Praia. There is a little shade, not to much. The best place to be is at the bars just above it where you have a nice view..
