The lodge is run by the British couple Duncan and Claire with assistance by their son Dane. The family have lived in Peniche for several years and have vast knowledge about what to see and not to see in the town and surrounding area. The hostel is of high quality with a warm atmosphere and opportunities to socialise with fellow travellers - the family treat you as if you are their personal guests and took us out for surfing during our stay.

We stayed at the hostel for three days to see the city and surf some of the best waves in Portugal. Although we are experienced beginners, Duncan and Dane provides surfing lessons to every level. Dane has previously surfed at a professional level but nevertheless offers surfing lessons for a bargain.

You can’t help but admire the small family during your stay and this hostel was definitely a great experience by itself. Travellers of all ages should not miss the opportunity to stay at the lodge and especially for surfers this is a must. We warmly recommend the lodge to solo travellers, groups, couples and families.

Best regards,
Gus and Emil

I highly recommend Peniche Surf Lodge as a place to stay. Communication with Claire and Duncan was very easy prior to my visit.

The lodge itself is very homely and well equipped at the same time. The common area/living room is a great space which allows for socialising with fellow travellers should you wish.

Various amenities are located nearby. Two supermarkets, a very good and cheap grill restaurant, the bus station and town centre are all within walking distance.

Claire and Duncan are the most hospitable of hosts. If you wish to surf, Duncan will take you to the beach with the best conditions of the day. All equipment hire can be done with the lodge at a very reasonable rate.

Overall 10/10 and I would definitely like to visit again.

I came to this lodge with a friend that had already been there previous summer and wanted to come back.
Best experience ever! Could not have imagined it better. Me and my friend travel a lot together and we had one our best stays in Peniche with Duncan and Claire.

The accommodation was really spacious and clean. We were staying at the second lodge (they own two at the moment). There was a common room with sofas and TV, a huge terrace with sea view and a big kitchen with lots of utilities and a huge fridge (really important, after surfing you will just think about food).

Our room had views to the ocean. You could hear the waves breaking from the room, sometimes even smell it! We didn't have ensuite bathroom but didn't matter whatsoever because the shared bathrooms were kept clean all the time.

The quality of the surf lessons was amazing, as there were not a lot of people during our stay we could almost have private lessons with Duncan. He payed attention to every detail you could improve, you could notice how he really wanted you to learn and have big time. Lessons were long enough and at the end you caught loads of waves.

But the best by far was the family feeling. Duncan was picking us up every morning and afternoon to the beach, trying to find the best spot for our level of surf, making sure we had a good time on the boards and joining us for the lessons.
He was always caring and friendly, told us stories, recommended us great places to visit nearby in Portugal. It was much fun being with him and sometimes even Claire joined the group. Lovely!

I cannot recommend it enough as I am already planning to come back with other friends.

Thankyou so much Victor for this amazing review ,it is very true and detailed and will really help our future guests to know what to expect with us ,we did not get chance to make our usual daily beach camps as we were not meant to spend too much time on the beach during lockdown but it was great you both came and had such fantastic weather, surf and enjoyed staying with us ,also visiting nearby towns . It was truly great to meet you ,we are so pleased that you progressed so quickly with your surfing and we do hope you will return with your friends once again and maybe experience the lodge and vibe in its usual summer time glory ! We wish you all our very best and see you next time ,your PSL family Xx

Peniche surf lodge is a family driven hostel and you can certainly feel that whilst staying. Claire, Duncan and Dane made sure that everything was perfect for us. They are so kind and made us feel part of the family from day one.
We booked directly trough email and we felt completely safe from the beginning. Claire answered our questions quickly and made sure everything was okay. Especially in these Covid19 times this was very helpful. You can really rely on their Covid19 policy and cancellation rules. Don’t hesitate to book your stay with them.
The rooms and common areas was always very very clean. Duncan and Dane came every day to check in on us and drove us to the perfect spot of the day where we sat up a nice beach camp and surfed all day.
The lodge is nearby several stores and groceries and close to bars and restaurants.
We had an amazing time and will definitely come back. We can’t wait.

Awesome time in the lodge. Claire is very prompt in replying and she even picked us up from the bus station.

Lodge is lovely and modern. Nice vibe. And this brings enthusiastic surfers there to surf and not party. Lifts are included with board rentals and Duncan's knowledge of the area for best places to surf depending on tides and swell wind etc local knowledge is key!

Duncan and Claire couldn't have done enough for us! Thanks again and we will be back!!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Peniche Surf Lodge and had an amazing time. This is a family run establishment and they go above and beyond to make your whole experience incredible and stress free. They provide all you need for a great surf holiday; transportation to and from the beach, a convenient beach camp to leave your belongings, phenomenal surf lessons and general helpful knowledge for any level surfer. The whole experience caters to a great environment to meet new people from around the world, relax at the beach and enjoy the amazing surf. We will definitely be back!

This Surf lodge administrated by Claire and Duncan is awesome! We were a group of six people and spent a week there and we did not regret it at all! They welcomed us with open hands and their hospitality was so nice we just felt like home. They made sure we got everything we needed and in case there were any problems they made sure to solve it asap. I would highly recommend choosing this lodge, you definitely won‘t be disappointed :-)
Thank you for the great times and memories, we will come back.🏄🏾‍♂️❤️

We stayed at the lodge for a week and had a great time. Everything from the airport pick up, to the daily surflessons worked out perfectly.
Claire and Duncan are very accommodating hosts that have many great tips about the area and are helpful with anything needed. Dane was the one teaching us surfing from scratch and did an amazing job, explaining it really well and hands-on. They are overall a really friendly family and we felt well cared for during our stay.
If you’re in Peniche during peak season it might be a good tip to make reservations at restaurants, as they fill up quickly in the evenings. Even if they do, there are many take-away options though.
We were really happy we chose Peniche Surflodge, are hooked on surfing now and wanna say thanks for everything to Claire, Duncan and Dane!

Peniche Surf Hostel is the PERFECT option for anyone coming to Peniche to surf, regardless of your level, especially if you’re planning on renting equipment or do not have transport. Duncan, Claire and Dane truly care about their customers and make sure to find you the best waves each day. The lodge is well located, always clean, super cozy and full of good vibes. There’s a reason so many people return, and I will most definitely be one of them.

Thanks again ❤️

I had very enjoyable stay. Duncan and Clare are great hosts who made me feel at home. It was great having Duncan take us surfing every day because he knew the best spots for the conditions and our surfing ability. If you want to have a fun surf trip in a cool place, the surf lodge is an excellent choice!
