is car necessary for surfing N. Portugal?

« on: August 07 2004 12:08:00 »

I am going to Portugal Sept/Oct and plan to surf N of Lisbon, in Peniche and Porto. Is it necessary to have a car to be able to get around to the different spots, or is it easy to take taxis/buses with a board to spots, or are there accommodations close to a lot of the spots? Thanks

there are lots of accomodations near all of those spots. hotels, camping, houses for rent. If you don´t plan on renting a car, Baleal in Peniche is the place to go. Yes, you can travel by bus between ericeira and peniche if you wan´t to change spots, but it´s an adventure...
