Surfies Baleal
Reviews (2)
5 out of 5

Just minutes away from the beach, in the heart of Baleal; Surfies is a perfect place to escape problems, a hectic life back home and rather feel the vibes of the ocean and appreciate all the advantages of our amazing location, which is perfect for both relaxing and fun activities. Staying in our place is like visiting friends to so easygoing and relaxed.

The wooden terrace is the heart of the place, perfect for those chilled after surf session or just a nice get together with your friends and the other guests.

Beach bars are just a 2 min walk away, and they are a meeting point for everyone who enjoys a cold beer after a surf session, sunset drinks or pumping nightlife in the summer and often live music shows.

We know all best spots to surf, eat and drink and have fun so we are going to share all of it with you.

Location

Our location is one of our best qualities. Just minutes away from the beach, you can check the surf first thing in the morning and even be the first one in the water surfing crowdless waves. There are around 8 surf spots in the walking distance. The Baleal Island with breathtaking views, beach bars, nice cafés and resturants, is just a 2 min walk away.

There is also a café making fresh pastries every morning just around the corner, and a small supermarket with ATM.

A little bit further on you can reach Ferrel, a tiny village full of traditional portuguese resturants and cafés. A 20 min drive leads to a picturesque medieval town of Óbidos, once the wedding present to a Queen, is without doubt one of Portugal's most interesting walled settlements.

From the hidden corners and high walled gardens of the old medina area, to the gothic, Renaissance and Baroque features, the Town is an extensive work of art.

Another closeby town of Nazare is known record breaking biggest wave surfed and seafood restaurants, bars and local women in traditional dresses.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Surfies is a very social hostel, Marta is THE BEST host - super friendly, very genuine, and she makes the most fabulous breakfasts for the guests each morning. The rooms are comfortable, and spacious too! Drop Surf Center is just round the corner from this hostel- they have great rates for board rental and brilliant surf instructors! They also do yoga lessons upstairs - perfect!

Baleal is a lovely picturesque beach town, which is great for surf during the day - and partying at the beach bars at night (would recommend Danau, which put on DJs snd live music - try their cocktails)! 10/10 for this whole trip :-)


How were the surf lessons?

     

I'm a complete beginner and took 3 surf lessons from the surf shop around the corner from the hostel- Drop Surf Center. The instructors are very patient and are complete pros at the sport- even in a group they help each individual maximise their experience and develop skills- I enjoyed every second! The lovely ladies in the shop are super chill and incredibly welcoming- putting you right at ease from the get-go - a great place with great people!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Baleal is a great little town for surfing. Great surf spots really. To go out at night you can just go to Peniche or Ferrel. But for surfing it's a great place. It was a great stay. Good breakfast, nice hosts, very helpful. Overall great!


How were the surf lessons?

     

Martha at the Hostel helped me out by booking a surf instructor, Pedro, for me and he was great. Awesome coach that give you good tips and pushes to get better. Very friendly approachable and helpful as well. A+

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.
