Centro is a vibrant region in central Portugal. It is famous for its hip surfing culture, secluded beaches, dramatic coasts, and cool cities with amazing histories. For a total surfing experience, we recommend the fishing town of Nazare or the charming seaside town of Peniche. Both are filled with a variety of shorelines and waves you simply can’t miss. Book your next surf camp in Centro Region and discover Portugal’s magic!
Portugal is a surfer’s paradise. Its huge coastline is dotted with waves of all shapes and sizes, rolling in one after the other, some located just outside lively beach towns with buzzing nightlife, others remote and serene. Simply put, Portugal has something for everyone.
Peniche is famous for quite a few things – long sandy beaches, surfing, sardines, and Supertubos, one of the best beach breaks on the planet. It is also mainland Europe’s westernmost city and one of the best places to learn to surf in Portugal.
The jewel in the crown of Portuguese surf, Ericeira is often compared to Mexico’s Baja California and Australia’s Gold Coast. Are you wondering why?
