Surfing In Peniche
Peniche is a hidden jewel in the crown of surfing in Portugal Europe. So being for its many different surf breaks within close proximity to each other that work on different winds and swells.
Peniche is one of the most westerly points of Europe, because it has no continental shelf it acts as a swell magnet towards any movement generated from the beautiful Atlantic coast, so it accommodates all levels of surfing ability from beginners, intermediates up to advanced and Pros.
With its variety of waves including the gentle clean beginner wave up to powerful perfect tubing barrels at Supertubos home now for many years hosting the RipCurl Pro, a fantastic event in which all the family can be entertained by watching the world’s most famous Pro surfers battle against each other to obtain the glory of the world title.
As Peniche is a peninsula, hence the name means this, was once an island due to this, it has many sheltered beaches facing different directions to catch all swell conditions suitable for all levels and offers beach reef and point breaks.
Not only is Peniche the place to go to surf the variety of waves, so to are the surrounding towns and villages, for example Nazaré has now become famous for its record breaking 100ft monster waves, a great family day out you may even see some tow surfing in action with the right swell forecast it’s only 30 mins drive from the Lodge and is a very beautiful town to visit and buy some souvenirs.
We often visit Nazaré, and other surf spots and towns on our surf safari days with the Lodge, these include a variety up the North Coast, Foz de Arelho, Ericeira and many more.
