When in Peniche, drive to Baleal. It's in front of the Surf Castle (with big pointy roof) with a parking lot usually full of vans.

Even though it's mainly a left handed wave, it has a right handed peak, mushy and soft most of the time. Ideal for learning surfers, but when the waves get over 6 feet, it becomes a good wave for everyone. Easy to escape even when you go left so you don't have to paddle to much.
Quite competitive and can get busy and tense when its pumping. Because it's a reef, not many begining surfers go there, leaving the spot to the more experienced surfers
Loved the right when i was learning, love the left now that i'm surfing...

Just go check it out! - I was there 1st october 07(just got a house near there too) and it was 6ft super clean and really fun! The water was abit cold in a 3/2mm and there was a bit of a crowd (about 25 people) but hey the way i see it, if you respect the people in the water and be patient and wait then your going to get some waves like i did. Ignore the fucking idiots in the water and go get some!
