Spot Guide Peniche
There are dozens of different spots in Peniche that work on all different winds (Hey, it´s always offshore), swell sizes and directions and tides.
Don´t blame me for not writing down more spots. Some have to stay secret and some we can only show you if you don´t tell anyone.
Have a look at the map of Europe: Peniche sticks right into the Atlantic Ocean, thus it’s rarely ever flat. There are not even a handful of days a year without waves under hip high.
And even with the biggest winter swells there are always some protected spots.
All the numbers you see in this guide are for orientation purpose only. Sandbanks shift and swells are never the same.
Actual wave height depends a lot on the swell direction and wave period. Supertubos is a good example: In summer time you can have 12 foot of wind swell at 9 seconds from the north. Supertubos will be basically flat. But in winter time you can get 5 foot at 14 seconds from the north west and it will be pumping.
And never forget: You almost never want big swell to hit your beach from straight ahead. A bit of an angle usually will make the waves not close out.
