How did you like the accommodation?

     

Loved it !! It was in a beautiful area, really relaxing. It was accessable to some great places like Baleal and Peniche. Loved the beaches and my son and husband loved the surf. We did not book lessons, we just did our own thing.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Okecasal can be summed up as a perfect peaceful haven.....the architecturely design of the house makes it suitable for a family /friends of 3-4 people.The organic pool is so much more natural and nicer than a chemically treated pool.... The view of the lagoon from the deck is a memory that will remain with me for a very long time.All in all a very,very special place....


How were the surf lessons?

Unfortunately we didn't get around to surfing....we would very much like to get back though again...

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.
