Tarrafal is a seaside city and fishing port on the northwestern coast of the Cape Verdean island of Santiago.
The city boasts a beautiful soft-sand and palm-tree lined beach in the shadow of Monte Graciosa, a distinctive mountain just north of the settlement. It is a popular vacation and tourism spot for people on the island. It has sunset views of the island of Fogo, cabins to rent, and outdoor dining with the scenic mountain or seaside views.
The city of Tarrafal is the northern anchor of the road leading through Assomada to Praia (the Cape Verdean capital). There is also a small road that leads to the most northern point of the island of Santiago.
There are several other settlements in Cape Verde with the same name, notably Tarrafal on the island of São Nicolau; however, Tarrafal on the island of Santiago is the largest and most populous.
