Which are the best months to surf in Peniche ?

If you are asking me what are the best months to go to Peniche and surf the answer is … it depends! Let’s say that this area offers all year round conditions for surfing and enjoying the sea but if we had to choose, we would probably say that September and October are two good months to find quality waves.

Another reason that makes us lean for this solution is related to the fact that people in the water will certainly be less than in July and August and in general the weather is really favorable during this time of year.
