Peniche is synonymous with the sea: in this coastal town where the fishing industry goes hand-in-hand with tourism as a two-pronged means of promoting a unique destination, the fine white sandy beaches have given it the nickname the “Capital of the Wave”, where sea sports enthusiasts and travellers with a love of the sea can find everything they need for a unique stay. Just a little way offshore, you can visit the almost completely wild islands of the Berlengas – UNESCO World Heritage site – where you can fully commune with nature. In the city, various different monuments and cuisine with unparalleled flavours will win you over as soon as you arrive.
The Praia D’El Rey golf course is considered one of the best in Portugal, and is the perfect place for weekends dedicated to sport and contact with nature. One of the interesting features of Peniche is that it sits on a mound – a tiny peninsula with a perimeter of around 10 km -, with Cabo Carvoeiro at its extreme western tip. The coast is formed by imposing cliffs and magnificent long beaches along the ocean in a constant line of aspects which delight all visitors.
