Seriously a castle in terms of comfort, style and surf set-up – waves all over the place. Your search has come to an end.

"Arguably Europe’s most beautiful surfcamp"

Staying at Surf Castle means staying at arguably Europe’s most beautiful surfcamp. This is a jewel and its setting is absolutely unique. Set on the cliffs, right in front of reef-break Lagido, Surf Castle combines surf and style in a unique way. It is perfectly suited for solo travellers, couples as well as groups alike who value the fine mix of a perfect surf setup and stylish comfort accommodation.

"Plenty of beaches catching all swells from north to south"

Surf Castle was the first house on Baleal Beach. Though old, it has been completely renovated and adapted to perfectly suit surfers’ needs. It overlooks beach break Cantinho, Baleal island and reef-break Lagido and couldn’t be better located. At the Surf Castle, you can stay in a double/twin bedroom or – if you’re with friends or family – in the studio. After a healthy, rustic breakfast you can check the conditions from your terrace and surf out in front or explore other waves in the area with your guides. There is an abundance of beaches catching all swells from north to south – due to 2 peninsulas, Peniche offers one of the widest swell windows worldwide. It’s always offshore somewhere. Swells are biggest from October – April but the north coast especially is consistent all year round. Bring a 3/2mm wetsuit except for the chillier winter months.

The standard package includes one week Bed & Breakfast and 5 days of classes or guides. Joao and his team offer a great service. For tailored packages, just let us know and we’ll arrange a 100% suitable trip for you. Go big, go for Surfcastle.
