Peniche – Supertubos

4/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Supertubos on the south side of Peniche is together with Carcavelos the best beach break in Portugal. It’s a world-class spot offering tubes of a lifetime. Long and heavy barrels are guaranteed with bigger swell from the west / southwest. There is a fine line between a fast barrel and a close out, so you have to pick the right ones.

It’s a beach break with both lefts and rights, but the lefts are usually better. On bigger days, it’s only for advanced surfers willing to compete with a tough crowd. On small days, it’s also suitable for less experienced surfers.

There are multiple peaks along the beach, but the quality ones will be packed on the good days. When the swell is from the northern directions, the waves at Supertubos are smaller since the peninsula of Peniche blocks the incoming swell. And when the waves at Supertubos are too big it’s worth to check Molho Leste, the beach just north of Supertubos.
