SOME BASIC INFO ABOUT HOW TO GET FROM PORTO TO PENICHE

Let’s start with a brief geographical introduction. Porto as previously anticipated, is located in the north of Portugal, on the Atlantic coast about 120 km away from the border with Spain. The nearest town to visit is Braga which is positioned further north and is only about 45 minutes drive away. We mentioned Braga, because the city is very pretty and certainly deserves to be visited during your Portuguese tour.

Going southwards, in Lisbon’s direction, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the entire Atlantic coast passing through some of the most famous seaside and surfing places. The distance between Porto and Peniche is equal to 262 km, and you can decide to travel by car, bus, train depending on your tastes.

Probably the best solution is the rental car. This is the option that we always recommend, especially for a kind of holiday based on surf & yoga. Choosing this option in about 2 hours and 30 minutes you can reach your destination. There is a high probability that you will stop several times along the way admiring the majestic waves of the north.

But if all this is not possible, do not worry because there are other great solutions available.

If the solution you choose is the bus, the links we found online are through the Portuguese carrier Rede Expressos. The connection from Porto to Peniche, is offered several times a day in 2 different ways:

  • direct journey
  • not direct journey (bus change)

 

The direct journey takes 4 hours and 40 minutes covering a total distance of 285 km. Our research is available once a day starting at 4.30pm and arriving at 9.10pm. The reference code of the bus trip is: 01503.

The not direct journey instead is definitely longer. In fact, after the departure from Porto, it will be necessary to change buses in Coimbra to head to your destination. The total travel time will vary depending on the chosen solution, but generally it is between 4 hours and 20 minutes and 6 hours. Therefore at the time of selection it is necessary to pay due attention.

How to get from Porto to Peniche by train

Finally, the last option we want to recommend you is the train. Last but not least, because it turned out to be an excellent option for money’s value.

From the information we found on the Portuguese railways website, there are daily connections between Porto and Peniche train station which remains outside the city about 20 minutes away. The train station’s name is Dagorda – Peniche, do not forget it.

In the table above you can see some of the options available during the day and the related prices depending on the chosen compartment. As we have seen with the buses, the travel time varies depending on the train chosen, so be careful during the booking phase.

Surely the train option offers a quieter and more relaxed journey than the bus. But because of the train station location, once arrived at your destination, you will need to take a taxi or a bus to Peniche city center. This is the only negative factor to evaluate. Upon prior reservation, Boa Onda Guesthouse also offers a pick-up transfer service from the train station to the accommodation for all the clients who are interested in. Prices go to 21 to 24 €.
