Welcome to Portugal’s best beaches
The incredible sandy beaches which hug Peniche are considered as some of the best surfing beaches in Portugal. There are two main reasons; there are historically epic waves which offer huge waves which roll along the sandy beaches in perfect natural harmony and; there is always a beach which faces the best swells. Peniche’s beaches face multiple directions which translate into almost always on swells.
Challenging waves, perfect for the intermediate and advanced surfers
When you mix in tides, an open location and winds you are sure to cook up something epic and Peniche does not disappoint! Find out why Peniche is often referred to as one of the best surfing destinations in the world. BONUS: you can find pumping waves every day! If you are brave or skilled enough to take them on that is… Utter the word ‘’Supertubos” and you will be greeted with many tales of success and failure, as this spot is reserved for only the most advanced of surfer. If you are lucky you may even come across the ‘Boca do dragao’ (dragon's mouth), said to hide inside the very waves you surf.
Explore the harbour
IF you are drawn to the community of Peniche, then a visit to the action in the harbour is a must. Fleets of fishermen return en masse, greeted by hard working harbour hands who are delighted by the day’s heavy load. There are just as many bars and food joints (with loads of history) to spend the day exploring – a great way to recharge after a massive surf.
Take in the nightlife on your surf holiday to Peniche
One of the most authentic reasons surfers head to Peniche, aside from the surf, is the beach bars. Here, there are the three main beach bars welcome visitors all day and cover visitors in good vibes, great music and excellent cocktails. As the sun goes down on a perfect day, a magical transformation occurs as those very same beach bars become exciting nightclubs, visited by surfers from Peniche’s many surf camps and resorts.
