Where to visit, Ericeira or Peniche?

« on: May 26 2013 15:05:00 »


I am planning a trip spending two weeks in Portugal and plan to head to either Ericeira or Peniche but don't know which would be the nicest to visit. Am looking for intermediate surf, planning on staying in hostel, am travelling alone  and want to meet cool people, chill, party, explore and get soak up some culture and generally want to have an awesome couple of weeks away!

Would anybody be able to recommend where would be best to visit?? Shall i look into spending a week in each place??!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Josh,

Peniche is a small Fishing village, it has some nice corners but nothing too special. Peniche is very good for surfing, check cheap accomodation here

Ericeira is a nice town and i think theres more party going on then in peniche and lots of waves around too. But hey, Ericeira and Peniche is not too far away, you can easily visit both places in one day. (when you have a car at least)

have fun

Hi Josh,
I would say Ericeira, but I'm suspicious because I live there. Ericeira in summer is one of the  most consistent spots in Portugal for intermidiate surfers. You can easly have waves almost every days, not only in the beach breaks but also in point breaks. Ericeira and Peniche are 50Km far from each other. In summer Ericeira has a good night life and you can stay in a small and nice hostel beachfront - The Wave. Check it in facebook:

I hope see you soon in Ericeira!!!
