From Carcavelos to Cascais, most beaches are within a 20 minute reach. The most popular beach for Lisbonites and tourists alike is Carcavelos, the Estoril Coast’s widest and sandiest beach.
Friday night there will be an optional pub crawl that will take you to some of Lisbon’s best nightlife spots.
Saturday morning we will depart by bus to the surf camp in Peniche. The long and sandy beaches of this surfer’s paradise offer excellent conditions for beginners who want to learn quickly and in a safe area. More experienced surfers will find perfect conditions to improve their skills on either good sand bank breaks or accessible reef breaks. Peniche is also home to Supertubos, a world class surf break, also known as the European Pipeline. From 11:00 to 13:00 there will be an included surf lesson, followed by time in the afternoon to relax on the beach or practice your surf skills. That evening, we will depart Peniche for Libson.
The night is yours to enjoy dinner out on the town, hit up the bars, or relax at the accommodation.
We will check out of the accommodation in the early afternoon on Sunday and head back to Madrid.
