Pura Vida Beach Hostel is located at the charming Praia da Areia Branca in Lourinhã county just 15km away from Peniche.

Our location is well known for its dinossaur fossils from late jurassic with 150 million years. Here you can find the biggest collection from the Iberian Peninsula such as skeletons, nests, petrified eggs and footprints.
But there´s a lot to do here!

Beautiful beaches, high cliffs, calm coves and great seafood restaurants, it´s what you can find in 12km of our amazing coast line.

Surf or a long walk in the country side with a breathtaking view? It´s up to you to decide.
Here we show you some suggestions of what you might do while you´re here.
Hope to see you soon!

This amazing uncrowded coastline between Santa Cruz to Praia da Areia Branca offers many beach breaks and reefs. With beach breaks in each town suitable for learning and many off the beaten track waves along the coastline it is a great place to explore without the concern for large crowds.

Santa Cruz beach break gets good swell and waves are great on small to medium west swells. It can get crowded in the summer months but you only have to walk five minutes to find a peak that is quieter.

Praia da Areia Branca gets consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds and best around low tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likely to be crowded. Take care of urchins and rocks.

Don't forget to explore the towns of Peniche and Ericeira
