Peniche is known as the wave capital of Europe. Due to its exclusive geography, it is able to provide great surfing conditions more than 300 days a year. The cluster of beaches surrounding Peniche, provide surfers the opportunity to choose their favorite break and whatever the swell and weather conditions, find a peak that works perfectly. These facts and more led the ASP in 2009 to choose Peniche, "Supertubos" as one of the World Surf League stops, known as the MEO Rip Curl Pro Peniche.

Things to do (optional)

Scuba diving

Discover the transparent and amazing underwater world of Berlengas, a small archipelago located about 10 kilometers west of Peniche which is classified as a Nature Reserve since September 3, 1981. Its marine reserve is classified as a "Biosphere Reserve" by the Council of Europe since 2011 and "World Biosphere Reserve" by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Trip to Berlengas

The Berlenga Nature Reserve is a unique place due to its transparent sea and underwater treasures. The archipelago consists of a large island, Berlenga Grande, and some small granite islands and rocks (Estelas and Farilhões), which are situated some seven miles off the headland of Cabo Carvoeiro to the northwest of Peniche.

The island of Berlenga Grande can be seen from the mainland when there is no sea mist. Here, you will find endemic species of flora, as well as one of the preferred nesting sites for seabirds. Built on a rock adjacent to the Berlenga Island and connected to it by a small bridge, there stands the Fort de São João Baptista, a military fortress built in 1502. The island’s tiny beaches with their clear blue water are very beautiful and ideal for swimming and diving.

Access to the island is by boat, with departures from Peniche harbor. It takes roughly 30 minutes to reach Berlenga Grande. There is also a restaurant on the island.
