Peniche is a seaside municipality and a city in Portugal. Visit Praia da Formosa and Molhe Leste Beach for some beach relaxation.

Get out of town with these interesting Peniche side-trips: Caldas da Rainha (Praia Foz do Arelho & Church of Nossa Senhora do Populo) and Santa Maria do Castelo Church (in Lourinha). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Obidos Village, kick back and relax at Praia dos Supertubos (Medão Grande), delve into the distant past at Aqueduto da Usseira, and stroll through Baleal Beach.
