The Surfcastle is a boutique hotel and surf school which stands proud on the cliffs of the Peniche peninsula overlooking one of Europe's most beautiful and consistent surf spots. 

We are so close to the waves that when the World Surf Tour comes to town each year, plenty of action is seen from our terraces. But it is not just its location that makes the Surfcastle different. 

The aesthetic, say our guests, is "shabby chic"; the vibe "informal, relaxed and fun-loving... the ideal place to enjoy a surfing holiday in Portugal.". 

Our house was built in 1920 as a traditional Portuguese family retreat and remains the most architecturally spectacular and comfortable property in the area. It's grand rooms and grounds not only offer stunning panoramic views of the Silver Coast but the perfect place to kick-back and relax with family and friends and enjoy a fully rounded surf holiday.

In short, we are an old-style surf camp with added comfort, style and sophistication. A place you can enjoy even on those rare days the surf is down. 

A place where you can bring a non-surfing partner or kids without fear that they get stir-crazy or bored.


    All bedrooms have uninterrupted views of the coastline, and our lounge has four floor to ceiling windows that look out onto Lagido, the famous reef break right on our back yard.


    The atmosphere in the Surfastle is that of warmth and cosiness throughout all our relaxing chillout areas. Our lounge is the perfect place to watch the surf endlessly from any angle, be it standing on the terrace, or relaxing on the comfortable sofas.


    We have a variety of outdoor areas for you to enjoy during your stay at the Surfcastle. Our garden is ideal for football, surf warm ups or yoga and our terraces always catch the sun regardless of the wind direction.


    We take huge pride in providing a friendly atmosphere, and there is always staff around the Surfcastle should you require our help.
