Portuguese Restaurant
$$
“MUST MUST MUST! Tasca do Joel is one, if not THE BEST restaurant in Peniche. The food is exceptional, the setting is super nice and the price is quite reasonable given the gastronomic experience. My favourite dish here is the Braised Seabass and Mussel Rice (I've translated this from the Portuguese name, so it might be a bit different on the menu). ”

Lighthouse
“Cabo Carvoeiro marks the tip of Peniche’s rugged peninsula and is a much-loved symbol of the portside city. Admire the heritage lighthouse that looks out across the surging ocean from the cliff top or learn about the cape’s vivid natural history.”

Beach
“Beautiful place to visit/walk/swim or simply roam around-calm and wavy beaches-depends which side you opt for, surfing schools, kiting, great views, tasty food. We been told in the winter time the tiny road is flooded especially if the weather is windy. Park at the big parking as enter the mini island is only for residents. Just go around to see tiny, mini beach, cool cliffs and you can climb up to the higher spot of the cliff. There’s a bike path along if you prefer to cycle around.”

“A super nice place for you to have dinner with friends. This is a small restaurant in Baleal Island that serves really nice food. When I go there I usually only order their 'petiscos', they are all good. Must have: Pica-pau de Atum”

Golf Course
“Praia D’El Rey is arguably one of the most stunning golf courses in Europe. Set among extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlengas Islands beyond. The 18-hole golf course was designed by the renowned American golf architect Cabell B.Robinson and was inaugurated on 14th June 1997. Deep bunkers, sloping greens and sandy dunes contrast sharply with the lush fairways, making it the complete golfing challenge.”
