Peniche Surf Camp, Portugal
Peniche Surf Camp is located on a small island called Casais do Baleal, five minutes’ drive from Peniche itself. The camp is focussed on getting the best out of communal living and bringing people together. When you’re not surfing, you can make use of the large recreational area where BBQ socials are held twice a week to help surfers get to know each other. Guests can check the surf at the lookout area, play table tennis or table football or just relax and enjoy DVDs or music together. There are also surfing books and magazines available, and free wi-fi.
The camp itself is surrounded by beaches, restaurants, bars and coffee shops, all within walking distance. Nature lovers can take a boat trip to the nearby Berlenga Islands, where you will find grottos, caves and many unusual species of wildlife. Peniche is also a 15 minute drive from the famous historic village of Óbidos known for its medieval castle, or visitors can take a daytrip to capital city Lisbon or the town of Nazaré.
