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.
