I book my stay at Peniche - Baleal

Summer isn’t over just yet!

September is here and October is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean the summer is over at Ride – Action Resort & Spa

Now that August is gone you can enjoy the best waves in western Europe without the crowds. Whether you’re just a beginner looking to learn how to surf or an intermediate or advanced surfer looking to improve your skills, you’re in for a Ride if you enroll in our Surf Academy during September and October.

When August ends you can expect to have a more relaxed time at the beach, which are now a little bit less crowded, and an overall great time, since the weather is still great and there are plenty of sunny days during these months, thanks to our privileged location and notorious insular-like microclimate. At the same time the waves are even better, getting bigger and more defined with the start of the tidal wave season and the fall equinox tides. You can also expect water temperature to be at an average of a very comfortable 17º C , just a mere degree colder than averages in June to August, and two to four degrees higher than the colder winter months.

Check out what our friends at MagicSeaWeed say about some of our favorite surf spots during this time of the year.

Lagide:

The best spot on the north side of Baleal is this consistent left hand reef break that is offshore with a south wind. It’s a mellow but long ride and crowds are certain. Lagide’s low tide is sharp and shallow and high tide a little bouncy.


supertubos:

The name speaks for itself! World-class spot and undoubtedly the best beachbreak in Portugal, and one of the best in Europe, Supertubos has become a favorite stop on the world pro tour and a perfect warm-up for Pipeline. Long and heavy tubes are guaranteed as well as a few shut-down close-outs, such is the speed of this wave. The lefts are usually better, but plenty of shorter rights peel off the main peak, especially in northwest conditions.


Almagreira:

Somewhere along its great length you will find a good wave on small swells no matter what the tide is doing. Almagreira is another super consistent beach that stretches for miles to the north of town.


Belgas:

Travelling 7km north of Peniche, through a dirt road will lead you into this amazing and isolated beachbreak called Belgas, perfect to escape the more crowded spots and surf almost on your own. All tides are great and you’ll find a wave no matter what, but in perfect conditions its one of the best spots in the region.


With our safe and clean beaches in a friendly location with plenty clean air, sun, sea and sand, Baleal and Peniche have much to offer all year round, making it the perfect destination for surf enthusiasts and also to those who are curious and want to immerse themselves in surf culture.
