The Maximum Surfcamp is one of the oldest in Portugal and the first in Peniche. We combine the versatility of the different surf spots with a typical Portuguese apartment complex near the beach and everything the surfer heart desires.

Customer Reviews


After 2 weeks on the surfcamp I got to know the Crew really well, and this for me was the ultimate experience. Helder the cook magician, Alice the reception fairy and Pedro the maintainence Ferrari... Cheers guys! I miss you all! Sandro and Maya...OMG! You guys are surfing Legends! The best Surf instructors I ever had!


What can i say, amazing. The whole team at maximum are so friendly and go above and beyond for their visitors. The food is really good on camp plus many restaurants and things to do in baleal. The lessons are made fun and taught well by the instructors, we had 5 people to an instructor. We met great people staying...


Overall very happy and satisfied. Mostly because the group of people we met were great! On the plus side: Really liked the surfing teachers. They were great guys and could teach us intermediates well. Of course it is up to you how much you learn, but if you listen and do what they say you'll improve quickly.


“Awesome surfcamp” I spent two weeks at Maximum Surfcamp with a friend. All in all, it was a great surfcamp. Nice staff, clean accommodation, good food. Terrific location, you get to several good surf spots in 5 minutes! Will definitely visit again if I come back to Baleal/Peniche.


“Awesome surfcamp!” We enjoyed our week in the camp very much, the people were lovely. Our apartments were friendly and cozily furbished. We learned a lot from the surf coaches and they did not stop to challenge us. It was an excellent week in Baleal, see you next year...


We were very happy to have chosen Maximum Surfcamp to do our first surf course. The organization, the surf instructors and the equipment was very good. We felt very good looked after. When we come the next time we definitely would love to stay directly in the surf camp and not in an accommodation outside. Thank you Maximum Surfcamp!


Awesome, great place to stay and hang out. Staff, people, beach, party, all 5 stars :) The accomodations are great and the people are very friendly. The location is perfect and it's the best staff in the world :)


We have been here a week an it was amazing, the staff was supernice, the apartment we got was also very comfortable and perfekt for us. The food was delicious (except the koriander ?, bit that depends on everybody). Surfing was a lot of fun, but exhausting to us because some of us are not that sporty.


My friend and me have spent the last two weeks in the camp. First, we actually planned to stay only for a week. But in the end we extended our stay for another week, as we simply couldn’t leave this amazing place! This says all, doesn't it? ;)


Basically Maximum Surf Camp is well organised, they supply and provide advice on equipment, can provide transport to the best waves in the area, with qualified surf instructors offering surf lessons. The rooms are clean and the staff very helpful. There is also the added bonus that there is a half pipe and a swimming pool at the camp.


We wanted to stay 2 nights ended staying the entire week. Best surfcamp of Peniche, the crew is really awesome and the location perfect. There is always some fun stuff to do in the camp, a great experience is guaranteed . Don't miss this place.


I would say...that is and unbelivable experience. Crew, swiming pool, skate ramp, surf lessons, beach bars... Ive been in so many Surfcamps and this one is the only one that it still makes me smile!!! Im back in October for sure! Thank you guys!

I can recommend this place a 100%. Good surfing lessons, the crew helps you when you need something out of the ordinary, you can feel they like what they do and they are happy that you are their guest. I surely had a great time, although or even because of traveling alone you easily get in touch with other guests...


Thank you for another wonderful stay at Maximum Surfcamp! Greetings Valerie


Great location, near beach, restaurants, bars... Imagine vacations with all in walking distance. The staff is awesome, always available to give you all that you need and even more... imagine they even have a pool ?... the experience of learning surf was 5 stars. I will be there next year...


Maximum surfcamp is one of the best surfcamps in the world! Very experienced and nice crew at a location which is perfect! Maximum isn't just a surfcamp it's an experience which is so amazing that everyone should try it!
