Surfing the Silver Coast

Another little gem for those looking to either learn how to surf or take family or friends surfing for the first time. This bespoke lodge, purpose built with the surfing experience in mind is on Portugal’s Silver Coast, one of Europe’s finest surf destinations. The lodge, cleverly designed using a mixture of shabby chic, recycled wood and themed rooms, is intimate and homely.

If you have a passion for surfing but looking to sleep somewhere a little more comfortable than the back of a campervan or transit van then you won’t regret staying at Surfers Lodge Peniche with its comfortable en suite rooms and on site restaurant. At night head up to the roof top, chill out on bean bags and Moroccan cushions, listen to gentle tunes and watch the stars above.

After a breakfast of freshly made pastries, smoothies and other local produce meet Marlene, the surf academy manager, for a quick briefing of how the day will be structured before collecting your wetsuits and surf boards.
