The surf camp is located 80 kilometres north of Lisbon and offers ideal conditions for surfing beginners and advanced surfers all year round. Within a radius of 5 kilometres there are some of the best surf spots in Europe, breaking at different swell directions. During the summer months we offer the guarantee to be the only surf school to teach right in front of our surf base. This is located directly on the beach and host the famous beach bar with a restaurant and surfboard storage. Enjoy the view of the beautiful bay from a huge wooden terrace, while enjoying a café or a cold soda. In the evening, the legendary beach parties take place in the bar! You can choose between accommodation with surf equipment, a surf course package, a free-surf package (only possible in low season) or just the accommodation. The surf camp is open all year round and is located only half an hour away from Peniche, which is known as one of the biggest party destinations in Portugal.
4 REASONS FOR A SUDDEN RUSH SURF TRIP TO BALEAL:
- Quiet location with sea view, only 1 hour from Lisbon
- Various accommodation options for all needs and wishes
- Surf beach within walking distance (only 200m)
- Surf station with café & bar directly on the beach (no equipment transport necessary)
You can choose between three different accommodations:
The shared rooms in the 2 Surf-Hostels are well suited for relaxed surfers who like to share the room with other campers, keep an eye on their budget and meet a lot of new people. The two hostels are only 150m from the beach and the surf base. Bed linen, a kitchen for self-catering and WiFi are provided. In addition, the rooms are cleaned every other day.
In the Villa accommodation you will stay in a double room and share the rest of the apartment with other guests. The Villa accommodations with 2-4 double rooms per house are ideal for surfers who like it a bit quieter & more dignified and are on the road with their partner, family or a group. All apartments are equipped with bathroom/WC, kitchen, living room with TV & DVD, terrace, WiFi, BBQ and are within walking distance from the surf base & beach. You share a double room with another guest (single traveller) or your travel companion. On request, you can also book a room on your own (price depending on the season). Each guest receives towels and the bed linen is also provided. The apartments are cleaned every other day.
On request, we can also offer private apartments, all within walking distance of the beach and the surf base. Ideal for closed groups and families who appreciate some privacy, but at the same time would like to benefit from the good organization of the surf packages including the surf school base and its infrastructure (equipment storage, restaurant, bar).
The long sandy beach of Baleal offers optimal conditions for learning to surf, as well as good waves for advanced surfers. The sandbanks of this long bay have different peaks so that the surfers spread out and the individual waves are not too crowded.
From the camp, we offer surf course packages and in the low season surf guiding packages where advanced surfers can get to know the best spots of the region. A 10-minute drive from Baleal, the world-famous Supertubos wave is located near Peniche! Every year, surf pro’s from all over the world compete in different contests at Supertubos.
