LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

Peniche

Eighty kilometers north of Lisbon, Peniche is one of Portugal’s busiest fishing harbor. An island unto the 12th Century, it is now connected to the mainland via a narrow causeway bordered by long sandy beaches.

 

“Fortaleza” was one of Portugal’s most notorious jails, which now has become an impressive monument against fascism.

 

Peniche has been a magnet for surfers for at over a decade, due to the vast variety of surf spots working in different conditions and all within a fifteen kilometers radius. Swells that come from the North can be breathtaking on the northern beaches. The place offers powerful waves, such as the world-famous “Supertubos” perfect wave. North of Peniche, crowds thin out considerably.

 

Costa da Prata

 

The region of Peniche and Costa da Prata (Silver Coast) is renowned for its miles long beaches and the Berlanga Islands, a small rocky archipelago listed as a natural reserve and a favorite destination for divers when the season is right. Scheduled ferries take tourists from Peniche to the main island. Close by is walled town Obidos. 

 

Obidos

Odidos is an excellently preserved medieval town is a maze of narrow streets, and small squares lined up by churches and lovely whitewashed houses with flower-bedecked windows. The town was a leading merchant harbor until the 16th century when river access to the ocean was silted up. Obidos town lost importance, and its development was paused, the town remaining pretty much the same ever since. Now, the tranquil waters of the Obidos (Arelho) lagoon have become a favorite spot for windsurfers and its river mouth now is a reputed surf spot.
