My stay at the Maverick was just great! The house is amazing - absolutely more than hostel standard, the hostess incredibly warm and engaging and the location with beautiful views of the Portuguese countryside! The Maverick is just highly recommended! 5 stars.

The staff Julia and team are amazing and really helpful. They know everything about the surf around and always here to help you. Tiago is a good surf instructor and, also a good surf guide in the case you have no idea where to go. He is so cool. The view at night is beautiful, it is quiet from the crowd of tourists and feels so peaceful at night. The breakfast is so good. Always good to have a nap on the infinity swimming pool near the volley ball game. I miss these guys. We will be back, one of the best and friendlest place I have been in this aera.

The Maverick is a great place. We received a warm welcome when we were picked-up from the bus station in Lourinha. The atmosphere in the villas is great and you feel like at home, because the hostess Julia and her little helpers really care about you having a great time. They love the region and are always eager to give insider tips and show you the Portugal how they love it.
The breakfast was delicious, the best hostel breakfast I got ever offered. And the kitchen is wonderfully suited to cook for ourselves, it is very large and it's great fun.
There is a free shuttle down to the beach and when you just feel like relaxing by the pool, this is also a great place for it.
Me and my family really enjoyed our stay, I would recommend these Surfvillas to everyone, even for those who want to lie on the beach and watch the others go surfing :)

Tiago is a great guy and and excellant surf instructor. Taking lessons with Tiago was the highlight of my children's trip. I would recommend him 100%.
He is a great instructor; always patient and very conscious about the safety. The way he interacts with the kids in the water makes all the difference to the other surf courses we have tried so far. I would recommend him to everyone!!!!!

We had a brilliant time in Maverick! We were there for a week and I can only say it was a fantastic time in every aspect. The house, the rooms, the pool, the sports facilities, the service, everything was awesome! Hostess Julia and the entire team try to meet virtually every need, so you are comfortable and feel at home away from home, it's all very informal and laid-back. The house is awesome, nothing is missing, decorated individually. The large garden area fulfills every wish, my tip is the nightly chill-out on the Dream Pool - madness !!!!! Every night you are offered another program, where you can participate, but not necessarily. We were, for example, one evening out with the other guests of the Mavericks in a great seaside restaurant. This was an evening that will stay with me for a long time. Or the pizza evening in the hostel, just great and friendly. This is not a normal hostel standard, it is the total package, the warmth of Julia and the team and Dennis who even goes up as far as Lisbon to help you out. The surf course that we have booked, was a success, we are so thrilled. All in all an indescribable vacation, we come back again and again ........ and looking forward to the next time!!!!!!!!

Praia da Areia Branca

Praia da Areia Branca

Level: All Levels

Praia da Areia Branca in Peniche is a long beach with several breaks over sand banks, rocks and the river. It offers good surf conditions especially in summer for beginners, but can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the east with some shelter here from north winds. The river break provides left and right handers. Best around low tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded and that's one of the main advantages of the spot.

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.
