Peniche is a peninsula in the West of Portugal. It is a small fishermen’s town surrounded by beautiful beaches with a large choice of great stand up paddleboard and surf spots.
Peniche is known for its consistent and high quality waves but also its calm and beautiful lakes and lagoons. It’s peninsula shape is a guarantee for offshore SUP conditions. SUP every day is a common pleasure, in winter and in summer. We have great conditions for paddle all year around. It’s a true paradise for SUP lovers!
Our SUP school is located in Consolação, on the south beach of Peniche. This small peaceful village has several surf breaks on its doorstep, calm lakes and lagoons around the corner. The reefs are found on the left side of the old fortress and on the right side there is a long stretch of beach.
Consolação has more to offer than just good SUP spots, though. It is the perfect place to enjoy nature, diverse and stunning beaches, great local food and beautiful sunsets.
Next to being famous for its waves and nice places to SUP, the Peniche area is also known for its gastronomy . There are many great local dishes to taste and the seafood is amazing.
From our base several trips can be made. A visit to Óbidos, a medieval village for example, to the island of Berlengas, a natural reserve full of animal life, or to beach town of Nazaré and Batalha to visit the old and impressive monastery. Consolação is also only 45 minutes away from Lisbon and it’s airport. There is a highway to Peniche and from Lisbon there is a good bus connection.
