I absolutely love when you get to discover a place that’s so alive yet so few people know about it… If you’re in Praia for just a couple of days stay right on July 5, that’s the name of the pedestrian street!… And you can walk along to have your choice of local Cape Verde food and drinks at And outdoor café… We day and made friends from Italy and Portugal and had a lovely time! Our cute little boutique hotel was just a block away end it was marvelous…

First visit to Praia. Was shocked at how difficult it was to buy anything that we usually get on holiday. Sun tan lotion, beach bag and towels. Sun tan lotion started at €28 a bottle!! Cabs cheap, food reasonable. Not as many restaurants as we had expected, but good food. Plateau had the most to offer in the way of shopping. Should have visited at the beginning of our holiday.

We visited on a Sunday and the street was almost deserted so it was pleasant to stroll down. Some of the buildings are painted in pastel colours. There were a few shops but only a handful were open on Sunday. Any of the streets on the plateau are worth a wander down to see the colourful buildings, some interesting murals to be found as well.

Nice and busy, many shop options and the market is so full of colours. Would also recommend to see the Church ( Pro-cathedral Nossa Senhora da Graca) that is in the square next to Avenida 5 de Julio.

Busy during the day but surprisingly quiet at night, despite there being quite a few restaurants and bars on it and the surrounding streets. Some good stores, a couple of markets and supermarkets, and a nice stroll generally from one end of the Plateau to the other.

The pedestrian street is like a flee market or an extension from the market where we can also find coffee shops.

This street will take you 5-10 minutes to walk down, obviously longer if you browse in the few shops of interest. A few bars and restaurants open until early evening then deserted. Deserted Sunday as well. Sums up my overwhelming feeling of finding Praia totally underwhelming.

Avenida 5 de Julho (commemorating Cape Verde's Independence Day) is popularly called 'Rua Pedonal' since its pedestrianisation. To walk all its length from Praça Alexandre de Albuquerque in a northeasterly direction till the end near the Igreja (church) do Nazareno is one of the best things one can do in Praia.

There is usually always something going on, especially at night, while in more quiet moments one can admire the mostly attractive colonial houses. Once we saw a young man recounting Don Quixote in Portuguese to mainly children. Then children were scribbling rhymes and quotes on a long band of paper, probably put up by the municipality.

All visitors will probably enjoy this street, except the unfortunate ones, who have made the mistake of booking a room in one of two hotels on this street.

Not to be confused with the avenue, this park is well-maintained and suited for a stroll to enjoy the plants and flowers after the rain season. If you go during the dry season, you won't see much green. There is a mini-colosseum inside that is fun to sit in. Nice flowers blooming. You can head to the Sacupira market afterwards to shop local and look for bargains on food, clothes and souvenirs. To catch a taxi or bus, head out the entrance and to the left, until you see the street.

Stroll this pedestrian strip, in the center of Praia. The buildings have been restored, all the pastel hues are beautiful. There are many cafes and some shops to visit. You need about 30 minutes to walk this strip. If you choose a hotel on this strip you will be doing yourself a favor.
