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

    Important notice regarding COVID-19

    Dear Visitor,

    The worldwide corona crisis hits numerous people (in)directly around the world and the tourism sector is receiving a massive beating.

    With the current safety measures we're not allowed to teach at the moment and we expect that we won't be able to provide holidays and kitesurf lessons during April either.

    In our opinion the uncertainty is prohibiting us all from making concrete plans but even though all kinds of events are cancelled we're still planning an amazing summer for you.

    At The Kitesurf Lodge we fully understand the gravity of the current situation and for this reason we made a few adjustments in our cancellation and deposit policy:

    - You can do your booking with us without paying a deposit.
    - After the crisis has passed or 14 days before your arrival we will be in contact to see if you'd like to continue with your holiday.

    We hope that this will give you the reassurance that you can have your holiday if there is a possibility and if the crisis continues that you will be assured that there is no additional financial damage on top of all the hazard that is currently going on.

    In case you have any doubts about planning your holiday, feel free to contact us and we're very willing to search for a suitable solution for you.

    We hope to see you soon and wish you all the best and health!
