Peniche – Baleal

Everything you need to now about this surf spot

The beach in between Baleal and Peniche is 4 kilometer long and offer plenty of different peaks. The surf spot on the south side of the beach (so closest to the town of Peniche) is called Cerro. This part of the bay normally receives less swell and is the place to go for smaller fun waves. It’s also a good spot for beginners. The middle of the bay is called Baleal Meia Praia and this spot picks up more swell then any other spot on the north side of Peniche. The wave packs some power and with the right conditions it’s a quality wave with some barrels. The most northern part of the bay is called Cantinho da Baia. This is a consistent beach break with mostly mellower lefts and rights suitable for all levels. The waves normally get smaller once you come closer to the Peninsula of Baleal. Ideal for beginners as well. Side-offshore with the prevailing summer winds, means potential surf all year round.
