Learn to Surf in Peniche
With its quaint town center and rich maritime history, Peniche offers visitors a glimpse into Portugal’s seafaring past. But the reason why we love it is that it is also a hub for backpackers in Europe who want to learn to surf.
Seriously, there’s nearly more surf schools and surf camps here than in the rest of Portugal combined. Rather than feel crowded though, Peniche feels like one big learn to surf party. Perfect for beginners who also want to mingle and meet new people while learning to ride the waves.
