Peniche is very much an old-style fishing town. Every evening the fishing boats leave harbour and return to port during the early morning with their catches of sea bream, sole, halibut and of course, sardines. The catches are on sale that day in the big covered market in the centre of Peniche and in the many fish restaurants throughout the town. You can book fishing trips and day trips to the Berlenga Islands in the harbour. From Peniche town you have stunning beaches in every direction. Praia Consolacao ('Consolation Beach') is a stunning example (picture above) and in the opposite direction from Peniche to Baleal you have another endless stretch of golden sand. So many beaches to choose from, you better get started!
