West

Some of our Apartments & Villas...

West region is known for its long beaches, which are popular for recreational activities and sports such as surfing, windsurfing, bodyboarding and kite surfing

The region was built on a rocky peninsula which is considered by geologists a unique example of the Toarcian turnover during the worldwide Early Jurassic extinction.

These beaches are consistently windy and have good surf breaks with supertubos, i.e., waves forming fast and powerful tubes, considered among the best in Europe.

The area of West has been called the "European Pipeline", after the Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii.

The Berlengas islands, about 10 kilometres (6 mi) offshore from the peninsula of Peniche, are part of the municipality. They form one of the world's first nature reserves. In summer, the islands can be visited by taking a ferryboat.

With its scenic harbour, white windmills, chapels and long sandy beaches has inspired famous artists like Maurice Boitel.
