Praia de Cabral, also known as Praia da Cruz or Praia de Cruz is a beach on the northwest coast of the island of Boa Vista in Cape Verde in the immediate area of the town of Sal Rei. The beach is divided into two parts, Praia de Cruz in the south and features a small hill where the island's first modern hotel was built and Praia David in the north.

The beach is entirely made up of sand, it features a hotel and a small Jewish cemetery, which is no longer used. Sal Rei once had a Jewish community. In 2011, villas, hotels and some houses were constructed which brought a new touristic attraction next to the beach.

The beach is famous for its annual music festival which permits Cape Verdean music. A Turtle habitat has been protected in the beach area. The small saline marsh of Sal Rei is southeast of the beach, a part of it has some houses built recently in the early 2010s.

Praia da Cruz is also home to the island's chief music festival known as the "Festival Praia da Cruz.
