My plan is to travel the coastline of portugal next year.. I would like to start in the Algarve region, and make my way up allong the whole coastline untill i reach spain... My plan is to start in the beginning of june 09, and stay there untill november 09.. I know its still a long time before i leave, but i want to make a kind of roadbook, and maybe you guys can help me with that.. :) ..i start eveninglessons to learn portugese after this summer.. but what i'm mostly lookin for is information on spots, maybe nice little campings (hey, a man has gotta take a shower sometime!), some nice citties with cool bars, or even some lesser known spots...
Anyone who thinks they can help me... please feel free to do so!!

sounds like a good plan - I'll be in Portugal then and would be happy to show you the ropes when you get to the central coast. You're certainly planning ahead! Drop me an email and I'll give you more info, maybe nearer the time?! Toby.

I stayed in a place 5 mins south of Peniche called Tribo do Mar. Was a great, cheap little surf house bout a 5min walk from a surf beach (consolacao i think it's called) and a 5min drive from Super Tubes and Baleal and Ferral. The owners are a really friendly local couple who have a heap of local knowledge on the best breaks to surf. The house is in a great spot because there are heaps of surf spots within 10 mins drive of each other to cater for most wind directions both reef breaks and beach breaks. Stayed there for 6 nights and the last day i was there super tubes was overhead and super clean... definitely recommend this place. Just south of Peniche is a place called Ericeira (i think that's the spelling) apparently this place goes off as well but didn't get a chance to check it out.

hi nicolas, all these places they are talking about are good but if you prefer a different thing, you should know our surf academy . The santa cruz surf academy is situated in a friendly small village called santa cruz, 60 kms far from Lisbon and between Ericeira and Peniche. Here you will find beautifull beach breakes and not so crowdy.If you like party and fun, at the end of july there is the santa cruz ocean spirit festival with some surf , kitesurf and kiak contests. otherwise, you can also try horse riding and/or golf.the ambient of our surf house is a familiar one and with realy nice typical mportuguese food (optional). take a loook at our web site www.santacruzsurfacademy.com
Hope hear from you
