Joao and his team not only make you feel welcome and comfortable at the Surf Castle, they make you feel a part of their surfing community... Even if you don't surf! A great place to relax and enjoy the terrace where you can watch three surf spots at once. A good breakfast is included to prepare you for your day... More

Jaoa and the team are brilliant! We have been taking surf trips here for the past 4 years. It is a truly authentic surf destination and the house has been in the family for years! The beach is seconds walk and vibe is chilled! ;)

Really nice small reef for first time reef surfing and then a whole lot of other beach breaks available to suit every level. From the dining room and lounge there... More

I recently stayed in the Surf Castle on a solo trip to Peniche for the weekend. Overall I had the most amazing stay. The waves pumped, the sun shone, and the people were incredibly friendly. The hotel borders the shabby chic category and has loads of charm. You share a toilet but the rooms are clean and have the best... More

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 was built sometime after the first World War by a rich Portuguese merchant, and was later purchased by the family of one of the guys that run the place. 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
