Peniche and the ocean are inseparable and we decided to join forces!
Come and greet one of the largest traditional fishing cities in Portugal, in the perfect atmosphere for relax and chill, meeting nice people, and making new friends.
Capital of the wave, Peniche is the reference for surfing in Portugal, and a meeting point for the world elite of this sport, every year at the World Surf League.
Whether you’re a surfer, a lone traveller, a group of friends or a family, be assured this is the place where your good vibes melt with the traditional Portuguese culture. We are just a few steps away from the village's best to known seafood restaurants and some of the best waves in the world.
Sleep in cool style in our dorms, suites, studios and apartments, and simulate a traditional fishing village without leaving the premises. Ask our creative staff what you can do to connect with the locals easily and mingle among the locals.
The beach is the place to be if you want to get a tan and dive into the pure ocean, but make sure you take one of our boat rides and visit the wild Berlengas. Are you truly sea to sick? Then try a bike rental tour instead, or an afternoon simply drinking beer in a beautiful deck or esplanade.
Come enjoy our open space common areas and fully equipped kitchen, and release your inner Masterchef. Challenge your friends to a foosball match and a trampoline competition afterwards, and tell the world how much fun you had in Peniche.

The best thing about the Peniche & Baleal peninsula is that the beaches face both north and south, and are all within a few kilometres of each other. So on nearly all conditions there is surf - it is well known as one of Portugal's most consistent surf destinations and a great place for a Surfing Holiday.

The WSL World Tour comes to Peniche every year in October and is a great time to visit if you want to watch the worlds best surfers such as Kelly Slater, Gabriel Medina & Mick Fanning battle it out to win. Surf everyday while watching the event also.

The areas main surf beach is called Cantinho da Baía, its starts in Peniche and ends up in the area knows as Baleal. The spot is famous for its consistency and for being ideal for beginners and intermediate surfers and is where some of the best Baleal Surf Camps are located. Protected from the bigger swell by the headland makes it’s almost always possible to surf here even when there is big swell hitting the coast. The beach stretches 4kms further west with many spots to surf - a great place to get away from crowds.

On the other side of the Baleal headland is Prainha, another great protected surf spot for beginner and intermediate surfers. And next to this is Lagide , a reef break and one of the best surf spots in Portugal if you have big swell and southerly winds. It's a long perfect left with a shallow reef at low tides - great for intermediate/advanced surfers.

On the other side of Peniche (south) is the area's and arguably Portugal's most famous break Supertubos . It's a powerful wave breaking in very shallow sand bar, advanced/pro surfers only! Other waves such as Molhe Leste, Consolação, Porto Batel and Almagreira are all close by giving every kind of alternative including many uncrowded areas; a great area to explore and Surf Portugal's best waves!

And don't forget you can head south and surf Ericeira - less than an hour's drive away.
