Peniche, without exaggeration, is called a paradise for surfers. The unique relief of the coast, in combination with the waves of the Atlantic, creates ideal conditions for practicing this water sport. Both beginners and pros can find a suitable place for surfing here.
The best time for experienced surfers is from September to May, although suitable spots on the coast can be found in the summer as well, at the height of the tourist season. Beginners, however, need to come to Peniche in the summer when the ocean is most calm and generates mostly low, soft waves.
By the way, you can observe two dozen different kinds of waves along the 15-kilometer coast of Peniche!
