The beach in between Baleal and Peniche is called Praia do Baleal Sul. On this 4-kilometer-long beach you find multiple peaks for all surf levels. The surf spots on the south side of the beach (so closest to the town of Peniche) are called Gambôa and Cerro. This part of the bay normally receives less swell and is the place to go for smaller fun waves. It’s also a good spot for beginners, but watch out for the rocks at Gambôa.
The middle of the bay is called Meio da Baia and this picks up most of the swell. This wave packs some power and with the right conditions it’s a quality wave with some barrels.
The most northern part of the bay is called Cantinho da Baia. This is a consistent beach break with mostly mellower lefts and rights suitable for all levels.
The waves normally get smaller once you come closer to the both ends of the bay. Ideal for beginners as well. Side-offshore with the prevailing summer winds, means potential surf all year round.
