Description - Hostel

One hour driving from Lisbon’s airport you will find Peniche Surf Camp. Around our surf base you can find a mix of long sandy bays and a couple of reef breaks. Peniche Surf Camp Base has got ocean view and is located 100 meters from 3 excellent waves to surf. In a 15 Km radius you have more than 20 waves to choose from, being one of them described as the best left hander in Portugal, Super Tubes.

The concept, philosophy, and culture of any given Surf Camp has got to do with the proximity and socialization that the Surf Campers have with each other, so that the experiences and sensations related to surf can be maximized. Our lodgings try to promote this contact, this sheerness in a comfortable and relaxed way! We have several kinds of accommodation: we have shared accommodation, like a youth hostel where it is cheaper and you will socialize with surfers from all over the world. You can also book a private apartment. All our housing is located near the beach and several surf spots. All the apartments are self catering.

On the outside you have a space with chairs and tables, some games, literature etc. where you can socialize with the other campers.

The Surf school is based on you, our experience and professionalism, on our surf monitors qualified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation and the best surf materials available. The school is open to people of all ages, skill levels and nationalities. You will be taught by highly qualified and experienced surfers and surf teachers who also are life guards. Each week you will have 5 days of teaching with 2 surf sessions a day. Everyday you will be on the search. Peniche has so many waves that it is possible to surf several surf spots on the same day. We just have to be on the right spot at the right time. At the same time you are surfing you are visiting different beaches. You'll never get bored.

Attention: there are two exits to Peniche on the highway. Do not exit on the first, because it will take you through secondary roads to Peniche. You should take the second exit to road IP 6. It's exit number 14. You drive all the way until you find the first round about. You follow straight and on the 3rd round about, just before you enter Peniche city, you turn right to BALEAL.
