Drop Surf Center

A well established surf school offering 2 classes everyday ( around 10h30 & 16h00 - depending on the tides) with qualified instructors. Classes are small and focused providing tuition for beginner, intermediate and advanced level surfers. Equipment rental and accommodation is also available.

Reviewed By Antonia S

If you are an "intermediate" surfer it can be hard to find the right place to go to get classes you really benefit from.
In contrast to the other plentiful surf schools in the Peniche region -which mostly resemble factory farming- the atmosphere at the Drop Surf Center is familiar without lack of professionalism.
Working on turns/cut backs/floaters, simply your posture, improving paddling techniques or understanding the different surf spots and their breaking zones/channels everything in theory on the land as well as in the water using video analysis and the constantly attentive eyes of Nelson made me really improve my Surfing!
Depending on the conditions you can be sure to surf in the best spot there is for that exact day and the things you want to learn. He constantly motivates you to take more waves, work on yourself and believe in your own strength -not the sitting around behind the waves like in the other "advanced" classes you see a lot. At the same time it's really fun being in the water together.
The all in all really small groups were well selected so that no one remains behind his or her potential. I had so much "standing time" -the only possibility to really start getting better once you left the white water- and I am glad to have surfed so many nice waves.
I am really happy that I dropped in the other day and got to know Nelson as well as the rest of the friendly team. It really enriched my time in Baleal.
I am sure I will come back to the Peniche region -and one of the reasons is that I know how quickly I can improve my Surfing with a couple of lessons at Drop.

Miradouro do Suberco

Reviewed By Ray V - Chaves, Portugal

People come up to the top of this high hill for the view. Despite the crowds it is still worth climbing to the top by the cable car. In the space of 15 minutes the car covers a distance of 318 meters (50 of which are in a tunnel) with a slope of 42%. Adults pay 1.20€ and children .90€.

Obidos Village

Reviewed By Natalija T

The area of the town of Óbidos is located on a hilltop, encircled by a fortified wall. Óbidos remains a well-preserved example of medieval architecture; its streets, squares, walls and its castle are a popular tourist destination.
Each July Óbidos castle hosts a traditional 'Medieval Market'. For two weeks the castle and the surrounding town recreate the spirit of medieval Europe.

Monastery of Alcobaca

Reviewed By mschmitt255 - Waterloo, Canada

This Cistercian monastery built between 1178-1834 features superb gothic architecture even though the entrance is designed in the Baroque style. The monastery features the Hall of Kings, a beautiful cloister, refectory hall, original kitchen and dormitory. You can imagine what life would have been like in this monastery. This is well worth the visit.

Bacalhoa Buddha Eden

This tour takes you to the heart of Obidos region and with a history linked to wine and sparkling wine production dating back to the XV Century, the Quinta dos Loridos estate is a unique place, where tranquillity and nature play a special role. It is from these vineyards that the grapes are picked for the production of top quality sparkling wines - those of the Loridos brand . Produced in the age old winery, a rod-press dating from the XVII Century can still be found here. The Classic Method ("Methode Champenoise") is used to produce the wine, the whole process of which is conducted manually. This is followed by a period of ageing in the cellar. The surroundings of the cellar perfectly complement its purpose: terraced Gardens, a lake, a forest, vineyards, and the largest oriental Gardens in Europe, the impressive Buddha Eden. Buddha Eden Garden: With circa 35 hectares, the garden was created and devised by the Comendador Jose Berardo, in response to the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyan, in which one of the greatest acts of cultural barbarity took place, erasing masterpieces of late-period Gandhara art. From Buddhas , pagodas, terracotta statues and the various carefully-placed sculptures which can be found among the Gardens, it is estimated that some six thousand tons of marble and granite were used to create this monumental work of art. There are seven hundred hand-painted terracotta soldiers, each of them unique, copies of those which were buried, some of them 2,200 years ago. At the central lake, KOI (Japanese carp) fish can be seen, and sculpted dragons rise out of the water. The central staircase is the focal point of the garden, where the golden Buddhas offer you a calm welcome. This is the Quinta dos Loridos estate, a place which awakens the senses...

A wonderful green space and chance to breath in the country air. The park is wonderfully maintained and well worth a visit. For a relaxing day in the country it's tough to beat (there's even a little train that takes you around if you don't feel like walking!)
