Campo Baixo is a small settlement located in the southwestern part of the island of Brava, Cape Verde. In English, the name of the village means "low field". It is situated in the mountains, 4 km southwest of the island capital Nova Sintra. From Nossa Senhora do Monte, a larger village in the middle of Brava, Campo Baixo is accessible by "Aluguer" busses.

Close to Campo Baixo, a small chapel on a hill which is shaped like a ship, is worth a visit. The name "Santa Maria" referring to the ship of Christopher Columbus is painted on the ship. There are similar monuments or chapels in other places in Cape Verde as well, e.g. in Nova Sintra. From the hill, which is close to the road to Palhal, there is a beautiful view of the village and its surroundings.
