When is the best time to surf in Peniche

Best time to go

With its fairly good and regular SW-NW swells, Peniche has great and consistent surf conditions all year long. Being centered between the dry Algarve and the damp regions north of Porto, Peniche has a perfect warm summer with a cool Nortada (north wind). In the 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).

Because of its year-round cold water temperature, it’s recommended to wear a wetsuit at any time. In summer, a 2/2 or a 3/2 might do, while in mid-winter a 4/3 and boots are recommended.

Going out in Peniche

Food

Peniche is a traditional fishing village, known for bringing in the fresh catch of the day. In the nights, fisherman from around the world bargain for the best fish on Portugal’s largest fish market in the Peniche harbour.

The traditional Portuguese kitchen is found in most places, and seafood is what chefs know best. Peniche’s harbour street Avenida do Mar has around 20 restaurants with (touristic) Portuguese cuisine, Italian pizza or Japanese sushi. The internal crowd is easily pleased here.

Nightlife

Discover the nightlife of Peniche with its beach bars, nightclubs, and plenty of parties. Although Ericeira is mostly known for its great parties, the nightlife in Baleal is also known for guiltily ruining morning surf sessions every day. Cheap shots, happy hour cocktails, and plenty of bars with sunset electro parties. Most surf camps host their own parties and evenings, making it even unnecessary to head into town sometimes.
