This beautiful region is known as the Costa Verde (green coast) because of its lush mountains and valleys. It has golden, uncrowded beaches and a chilled out surf scene so it is the perfect place to surf travel and relax.
Bustling Leiria and lively Figueira da Foz are accessible from both Porto and Lisbon. Beaches at nearby Nazaré are ideal for experienced surfers. It was here that Carlos Burle took on what is believed to be the biggest wave ever ridden at Praia do Norte, a monster storm wave estimated at nearly 100ft.
Manuel Centeno LSO claims Praia do Norte (North Beach) at Nazaré as his favourite Portuguese beach and as 2006 World and European Champion bodyboarder he should know.
If you want to learn to surf, Cabedelo beach is a good destination for beginners.
