LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

Peniche

 

Eighty kilometres north of Lisbon, Peniche is one of Portugal’s busiest fishing harbour. An island until the 12th Century, it is now connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway bordered by wide sandy beaches. Its “Fortaleza” was one of the country’s most notorious jails, now an impressive monument against fascism. The town has been a magnet for surfers for at least a decade, due to the large variety of spots working in different conditions and all within a fifteen kilometres radius. North swells can be breathtaking on the northern beaches while in South swells or northern winds, the southern beaches offer powerful waves, such as the famous “Supertubos” perfect tube. Northwards of Peniche, the crowd thins out substantially.

 

Costa da Prata

 

The region of Peniche and Costa da Prata (Silver Coast) is famous for its miles long pristine beaches and the Berlanga Islands, a tiny rocky archipelago listed as a natural reserve and a favourite destination for divers – in season, daily ferries take visitors from Peniche to the main island. Also well worth a visit is the nearby walled town of Obidos. This perfectly preserved mediaeval town is a maze of narrow cobbled streets and small squares lined by churches and lovely whitewashed houses with flower bedecked windows. The town was a leading merchant harbour until the 16th century, when river access to the sea was silted up. Obidos lost importance and its development was halted, the town remaining pretty much the same ever since. Today, the tranquil waters of the Obidos (Arelho) lagoon has become a favourite spot for windsurfers and its river mouth a reputed surf spot
