Day 8- Surf beach, Peniche-5/18/2022

Peniche is the westernmost city of the European continent and is one of the largest traditional fishing ports in Portugal. But it is also the place of many beaches, and perhaps the "surf mecca" with sand bottomed options for beginners or rocky reef sections for the pros .  It is also know for a quiet family holiday with plenty of restaurants offering fish and seafood that is caught daily by fisherman.

Taking the stairs up to the beach.


Wooden walkway leading to the beach.


Ahead is the beach of Peniche de Cima, and Oceanic Beach know for a very long sandy beach.



The view of the ocean is so peaceful and so relaxing.



Lots of surfers attending this beach.


How pretty is this?  Looks like a postcard.


Paradise on earth with a beach that seems to go on forever.



From the wooden boardwalk, looking on the left is a view of the city of Peniche.


We are heading there right afterwards.


Lots of surfers...






There is a cafe and a shop right next to the board walk.
