Peniche is very much an old-style fishing town but is experiencing a bit of a culture-clash as it rapidly becomes the centre of the surf-scene in Portugal. Enjoy great beaches, surf and restaurants in Peniche, around one hour north of Lisbon. We have a great selection of holiday apartments and villas in Peniche and Baleal.
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.
