Find and compare 8+ surf camps in Baleal, Portugal

Surf village Baleal, closely located to Peniche, has a fun beach for beginning and intermediate surfers, with plenty of surf camps and international surfers around. The actual Baleal island got connected to the mainland about 20 years ago. Every year in October, the pros are showing their tricks in Peniche during the world competitions, so it's recommended to learn from the best here. Escape the crowds and visit Berlenga’s national park for bird spotting, snorkeling, and its rich nature.

What's the best time to go surfing in Baleal?

The best time to surf in Baleal is year-round. With its fairly good and regular SW-NW swells, the Baleal area has great and consistent surf conditions all year long. Being located between the warm Algarve and the more humid regions north of Porto, Baleal has a perfect warm summer with a cool Nortada north wind. In winter, waves can reach heights of 8-15 ft (3-5 meters), while in summer the waves range between 4-6 ft (1.5-2 meters). This makes Baleal a great place for beginners in summer, and for intermediate to advanced surfers in winter. It’s recommended to wear a wetsuit during the year, because of its year-round cold water temperature. In summer, a 2/2 or a 3/2 might do, while in mid-winter a 4/3 and boots are recommended.

What's Baleal like after surfing?

In Baleal, most surf camps host their own parties and evenings. Heading into town? Explore Peniche’s nightlife with its beach bars, nightclubs, and plenty of parties. Although neighboring town Ericeira is mostly known for its great nightlife scene, the bars in Baleal are also notorious for ruining morning surf sessions. Discover Baleal’s cheap shots, happy hour cocktails, and plenty of bars with sunset electro parties! It's also a must to visit Surfers Lodge bar in Baleal, known for its legendary electro sunset parties.
