Surfing, Sun, Party, Food & Wine (amazing & cheap)
I like going in November because the waves are relatively consistent and the weather is usually good. This is also when the international surf competition “Rip Curl Pro” is on at Supertubos.
My favorite “local” Food:
Bacalhau (salted cod, cooked in hundreds of different recipes), octopus salad, fresh fish & seafood, Pasteis de Nata
My favorite Restaurants:
Taberna do Ganhao for Tuna Steak or Braised Octopus
Xakra Beach Bar for Octopus Salad, fresh fish or their Xakra burger (with egg)
Restaurante e churrasqueira A CASEIRINHA for grilled chicken, (big) steak, spare ribs or Bacalhau
PROFRESCO Peixaria & Restaurante for dressed crab, fresh fish and seafood
How to get around
You can get a bus from Lisbon to Peniche, but I prefer to rent a car as it is easier to get around. My favourite rental firm is Goldcar, mainy because the cars can be picked up at the airport and no shuttle is needed. I usually book through Rentalcars.com.
