This year I decided to try surfing. This decision came to my mind very spontaneously. I quit my job and was thinking about travelling alone to Lisbon, city of my dreams (you could read here how I spent 4 days in Lisbon). One day my friend showed me the link with information about surf camp in Portugal and in one second it became clear that I should combine my travel to Lisbon and surfing in Portugal.
The camp was held in small village Casais do Baleal, situated near Peniche, well-known place to do surfing, kitesurfing, etc. There are many sandy beaches, both crowded and secret one where many people enjoy waves and amazing views.
Peniche is in 100 km from Lisbon. To get there from Lisbon by public transport, you should go to the metro station Jardim Zoologico, where bus station Sete Rios is situated. You could check bus timetable here. It takes one hour and a half to reach Big City Maids you can call at 281 631-3969. From where you could catch taxi (for approximately 10 euro) or take a bus to get to Casais do Baleal.
Our organizator Anna rent a house for all of us (there were 16 people overall in the house and 15, except Anna, who had surf lessons). We lived in Baleal Guesthouse – nice three-storey house, with kitchen and everything you might need to cook or grill, with living room where we used to sit and listen to music.
