Praia da Areia Branca in Peniche is an exposed river break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the east with some shelter here from north winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west. The river break provides left and right handers. Best around low tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of urchins and rocks.
