We came to Peniche on a day trip from Nazaré. We anticipated a small village and were surprised to see this town and its rugged coast. There are also sandy beaches not far from the town center.
Peniche is famous for its sardine fishing industry. You can buy sardine tins from Peniche in Switzerland. Apparently, the sardines are healthy to eat and they are not overfished and the traditional way of fishing them doesn't destroy the seafloor.
If you have half a day, you can walk around the peninsula. We did that and enjoyed it a lot. It's only 8 kilometers. Well, I must admit it became a bit tedious in the end without sidewalk and no shade, but it was well worth it. The coastline is just spectacular!
- In a nutshell:A gem - not to be missed!
