Surf holidays Portugal
Penicheis located 20km from our lodge and is the surfers Mecca of Europe. Every year the surf world cup is hosted here and this is for a reason!
The peninsula of Peniche (and Beleal) have beaches directed to North, South and West, so no matter from which direction the swell comes, waves are going to hit the beaches here.
During the year the waves will be from smooth and gentle till full-on power. Normally during summer it’s a bit milder and perfect for all levels of surfers
