Praia da Areia Branca

3/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Areia Branca is a small beach town located 15 km south of Peniche. Here you’ll find a river mouth beach break with multiple peaks and also some reefs on the north side of the beach. A bit more to the south there are two other beach breaks called Praia do Areal Sul and Praia da Peralta.

Since it’s close to the Peninsula of Peniche, Praia da Areia Branca is less exposed to the northwest swells and therefore it is a little bit less consistent than most of the beaches down south and the beaches on the north side of Peniche. But this also means less crowds and a nice vibe! Watch out for strong currents with bigger swells.
