West Coast Surf Hostel | Praia da Areia Branca, Lourinhã near Peniche

Praia da Areia Branca

Praia da Areia Branca (white sand beach) is placed right in the middle of the West Coastline of Portugal. Its strategic location allows you to enjoy the cultural offerings of the major urban centers and the typical magic of the places where land meets the sea. The mixture of colors and smells between these two elements, earth and sea, gives a whole new dimension to the breathtaking landscapes that we found each new road we entered. The population is divided between working in agriculture and the various opportunities that the Atlantic Ocean provides,such as fishing.It is not uncommon to find those who earn a living through both activities.

Activities and places that necessarily have to visit are immense, a Jurassic Park, typical fishing villages, deserted beaches, medieval towns,Buddhist gardens the unmissable Rip Curl Pro Search where the best surfers in the world compete in one of the best waves in Europe,the Supertubes,the Berlengas Island (an natural reserve where diving could be a great experience for the senses, etc,are just a few exemples.The famous Portuguese cuisine and its wines deserved  a chapter by themselves,but words will never be enough to describe them. 

Also the quality of the waters and beaches,awarded by the Blue Flag organization (an ONG), deserve to be mentioned here.The list could goes on but with this little introduction in mind you might have a better idea of this paradise if you visit our photo gallery.
