WORLD SURFING RESERVE
The coast surrounding Ericeira, renowned worldwide for the quality, consistency and regularity of its waves, offers in a range of few kilometers an incredible variety of surf spots and beaches. You will find waves for all levels! The São Julião and Foz da Lizandro spots to the south offer beach breaks perfect to learn surfing or to improve it safely. On the right days their sandbanks offer you waves of optimal quality and allow surfing even when elsewhere the sea conditions would not let it.
Proceeding north along Ericeira’s small town lie a series of mostly rocky spots following one another: Praia do Sul with the Furnas break point, Praia do Norte, São Sebastião, Matadouro beach (perfect for beginners)Praia da Empa with the Pedra Branca and Reef peaks, two tubing waves (one left and the other right) more challenging than the previous. A few hundred meters to the north, in a beach nestled in a rocky cove, you will find the long right wave of Ribeira D'Ilhas: a great consistent spot that works with any tide and, especially with an W/NW swell, offers waves hundreds of meters long. Perhaps the most famous spot in Ericeira, is also suitable for low-to-medium level surfers.
Top-level waves await you further to the north: the Cave’s radical reef and the fast Crazy Left point anticipate what is regarded as Ericeira’s best wave, Coxos, a perfect right point that produces a powerful tubing wave in a landscape still unsullied and well preserved. Without doubt one of the Portugal’s best waves.
NOT ONLY SURF
Ericeira is also a perfect starting point for discovering the many attractions of the Estremadura region: not far from the famous old village of Sintra, one of the most popular historical well-known locations in Portugal which has also been declared, since 1995, a Unesco Human Heritage and natural park of Tapada Nacional de Mafra, a charming location for those who love nature. If you are interested in spending a day walking along the small streets of Baixa and Chiado, or taking pleasure in an evening between Alfama and Bairro Alto, Lisbon is easily reached either by car or by bus (around 40 minutes ride).
We also can provide a variety of activities and tours if you wish so!
