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

Surfing on the West Coast

Praia da Areia Branca (white sand beach) is placed right in the middle of the West Coastline of Portugal.It´s a typical surf village preserved from mass tourism and excessive crowds.
More than 30 spots, close from each other, guarantee surf of quality the whole year, regardless of the direction of swell and wind there are always several spots “working”, allowing us to choose the type of wave that we want to ride.
This so particular characteristic puts us right in the middle of the most fun and consistent aquatic park of Europe. It´s the paradise in liquid shape for all levels of surfing.
