Marina di Praia

Marina di Praia information

Lonely Planet review

Located a couple of kilometres east of the centre, this charming small beach and harbour are why most people stop off here. From the SS163 (next to the Hotel Onda Verde) a steep path leads down the cliffs to a tiny inlet with a small stretch of coarse sand and very tempting water; the best water is actually off the rocks, just before you get to the bottom. In what were once fishermen’s houses, there are now four restaurants, including an excellent place for seafood. You can also rent boats here.
