Inspiration for a flight to Surfing
Surfing holidays are growing in popularity amongst both young and old. This type of sporting holiday has a broad appeal as it goes hand in hand with a cool alternative surfing bar and cafe culture designed to appeal to the more laid back and funky holiday maker. Unfortunately, the UK climate is not suited to surfing fans so surfers need to travel further afield, usually involving flights to sunnier countries and continents. For the best breaks close to home surfing fans should fly the short distances to Portugal's beautiful Silver Coast.
Peniche is a fantastic location for surfing fans of all ages and abilities. It is only a two hour flight from the UK and boasts breathtaking coastlines and fantastic Atlantic breaks. Accommodation in Peniche can suit all budgets from hostels catering for budget conscious holiday makers to high end hotels for those that want luxury. There are many restaurants to suit all budgets in its historic harbour. Peniche is a short distance from Lisbon airport and it is well served by trains and buses. It is important to remember that experienced surfers should check the box marked for special sporting equipment when booking their flights, if travelling with their own surfboards.
