The old fisherman´s village Ericeira is directly located at the Atlantic Ocean – and is nowadays mostly known as the Portuguese Surfer Paradise. Here you can find the world-famous surf spots Ribeira d’Ilhas and Coxos, but also many other beaches and waves, which are suitable for surf beginners.
Because of the high number of world-class surf spots, Ericeira was named to the first and only „World Surfing Reserve“ in Europe in 2011. But also non-surfers can find everything for their perfect holiday in Ericeira. Many swimming beaches, some directly in the village – many others along the 15 km long coast line.
