Retreat location

This retreat will take place at Peniche, Portugal. You will stay at the Sunway Hostel centrally located in the Peniche area. All the surfing beaches are just five minutes away.

An hour drive from Lisbon you can find the small towns of Peniche, Baleal, Ferrel, and Atigua de Baia. All closely together and famous for their countless surf spots.

The hostel itself is in Atigua de Baia, which is a beautiful old town with a lot of ancient houses, a big square by the church, nice cafés, and restaurants. Here you can still feel the Portugese culture.

In Baleal, you can find a lot of bars and clubs directly on the beach. The surf community party, enjoys a quiet beer during sunset, or just meets for dinner. But most importantly, you have to visit the famous surf spots. The most famous one would be Supertubos which is a stop of the World Champoinship Tour in the end of October.

You can't forget the beautiful endless beach breaks between Peniche and Baleal, which is a perfect spot to learn how to surf. After Baleal there are a few hidden spots which quiet often have great waves even when the forecast everywhere else is rather bad.

In the south, you can find a point break called Consolacao and a nice smaller beach break called Plaia de Area Branca. This is just a small summary of the closest surf spots.
