Surf Castle was the perfect place to learn to surf: instructors were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and kept enthusiastically encouraging learners throughout surf lessons - despite our endless mistakes :-) The emphasis during lessons was on enjoyment and fun while striving to improve. Instructors were also extremely safety conscious by ensuing learners didnt drift too far from the shore or instruction... More

We stayed for a week in the surf castle. It has the best location by far, and overlooking the reef you can check the surf and crowd before you go out. It's not cheap, but in return you get nice rooms, a view and great breakfast! Would definitely go again!

The house is very special, and the view is breathtaking. They serve breakfast in the shared living room/dining area and having cereal with milk and honey with that view... More

I've stayed at the SurfCastle three or four times now and it is definitely the place to go in Peniche if you want a bit of style and comfort with your surfing. It’s an old family retreat converted into a hotel for surfers and has a fantastic position just above the waves on the point between the surf breaks of... More
