This is Amar

It doesn't get more central than this. Located in the center of the charming fishing village of Ericeira and right in the middle of a 6km stretch of world-class surf breaks, Amar is all about the relaxed lifestyle by the ocean. It’s a home for surfers and travelers alike to enjoy the chilled town atmosphere.

Amar is set on a fully renovated traditional villa build around 1933. It combines tradition with modern simplicity and confort.
We love to see our guests wandering around barefoot, sharing meals and stories in the garden, chilling on the sun deck or enjoying a drink at the lounge bar while watching the sunset.
Step outside to find the nearest beaches, restaurants, trendy bars and stores, just around the corner.


This traditional fisherman’s village has been a long time aristocracy sea side resort known for it’s picturesque charm, beautiful scenery, nightlife and exceptional sea food restaurants.

Surfing was introduced in the 70's and gradually turned Ericeira into a world recognized and relaxed surf town. In 2011 Ericeira became the first European surf destination to be awarded the World Surfing Reserve title. The award is a celebration and protection statement of Ericeira’s world class surf spots. It is no accident that people travel from all over the world to ride our waves.

Ericeira is very close to Lisbon and Sintra as well as many other worth visiting spots if you fancy a change of scenery.


Holidays are generally short and even when they aren’t they feel short. That’s why we don’t want you to waste your time. We have activities nearly every day which can vary along the year.

Join our surf lessons followed by reinvigorating yoga session, taste a portuguese barbecue in the evening, make a trip to the UNESCO world heritage hill of Sintra, embark on a SUP river tour or watch how good you are doing in surfing on our friday evening surf photos slide show.


Ericeira is a small town. Most of the best surf spots and the nicest beaches are within a 3 km radius from Amar. In case you don’t have your own means of transportation we offer scooter rentals with racks so you can carry your surfboard and explore the surroundings easily on your own.
