Praia da Areia Branca is a sand and rock beach break spot. Local restaurants and surprisingly low priced with the great food and drinks they offer. Too much tourism is not an issue at this location although you will encounter other travelling surfers that also share the luck in having encountered this jewel of a spot!
The main beach has a boardwalk that runs along the sand where you can enjoy the amenities of easy access when coming down for a surf. Parking is free and everything is easily accessible by foot. Peniche city and its beaches are only 12km north of Areia Branca, so getting there when looking for alternative surf spots is easily reachable.
Besides the surf you can also find other stuff to do like visiting the Dinosaur Theme Park, go to carting to visiting the Obidos Castle and taking a bike ride on the local bike paths amongst other interesting activities available while stating in the region.
A home for surfers. This house has a specious design indoor and out. 5 min walk to the main beach, local restaurants and bars.
The house accommodated up to 17 guests in its 5 bedrooms - private or shared. All bedrooms have private bathrooms.
There is a swimming pool, game room, barbecue area and large kitchen that you can store your groceries and cook your meals. You can store all your surf material in a spot destined for that at the house.

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
