The best places to stay in Peniche

For a hip atmosphere

  • Surfers Lodge Peniche is close to Baleal Beach, and is, as the name suggests, a popular spot with surfers, with its light, spacious rooms, quirky art, pool, hot tub, chic bar and restaurant and glorious roof terrace.

For a historic stay

  • The Casa das Senhoras Rainhas is almost the opposite, a historic townhouse within the ramparts of medieval Obidos. It’s not in Peniche proper, but it’s an excellent option for those looking for something a bit more historic. And it’s still got great access to the lagoon.
