An historic surfing mecca awaits you in Ericeira

Steeped in history and royal lore, Portugal’s Ericeira has gone from being known as the playground of kings and queens to the Mecca of Surf. Aside from stunning world-class surf along the 8 kilometers of pristine coastline, it is also a celebrated World Surfing Reserve. A mere 30 kilometres from the hustle and bustle of Lisbon, Ericeira has retained all of its historic charm with its labyrinth of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses set high on the cliffs above the azure blue Atlantic. Hurry up and contact a LUEX expert now to experience this historic surf spot.

What our customers say

"...I spent a week at Chill In, and had perfect surfing and holiday experience, though got injured (my own fault), but the guys took such a good care of me and encouraged me to surf after, gave all support and help I needed. Actually staying at that place made me start thinking about possibly moving to Ericeira for a longer term :) Surf lessons were also one of the best I ever had!

Highly recommended!"

Elena
(Chill In Ericeira Surfhouse)

"I chose Portugal because it isn't too far away from Germany, and I don't like flying that much. My friend actually recommended Surfriders because he was there last year and loved it. And I can't say something different. I loved it. Surfing, Weather, People, Accomodation, just everything. I am definitely coming back."

Pierre
(Surfriders Ericeira)

"Wooooow…with Lapoint you really get a lot - new surf skills, new friends, good food and so much more. I definitely surfed the best waves and had a time of my life! Unforgettable!"

Felix
(Lapoint Surf Camp Ericeira Lizandro)

"I just got back from my 7 day surfing trip in Ericeira, Portugal - My friend and I had the most amazing time!

The weather was great, not a single rainy day even though it was October, so we were out surfing every day.

The hostel was a home away from home- the bright colours, the staff and the guests (experienced and beginner surfers) - we couldn't have been happier.

The surfing instruction was very professional (Miguel!!!) and the instructors made us feel comfortable to go after the big waves (we traveled to 4 different beaches)...."

5 Reasons For you to spend your next surf holiday in Ericeira

01

You can't beat the Iconic breaks in Ericeira

Without a doubt, the treasure of Ericeria lies in the perfect barrels you can find all along the 8km stretch of impeccable coastline. World-renowned breaks like Ribeira d’Ilhas, Foz do Lizandro and Coxos wait to be ridden.

02

Accommodation for all

Whether you’re looking for a laid-back surf shack or a spacious villa with sea views, surf searchers can expect to be greeted by a wide variety of choices. Rest easy after a life-defining surf in one of the many places you will call home during your visit. New friends, whispered sunsets and the air of a different world will fill your lungs with every break as you relax under the Portuguese skies.

03

Find freedom in a World Surfing Reserve

Eight kilometers of perfect coastline make up what is considered by the American organisation Save the Waves Coalition as the first surfing reserve in Europe and the second in the world. It’s more than a surfer’s paradise, it is a pinned point in the consciousness of the world’s surfing community, where beaches such as Ribeira de Ilhas, the Baía dos Dois Irmãos (known locally as Coxos), Empa beach in front of the village, and São Lourenço beach are spoken with heavenly appreciation world over.

04

Find adventure on land in Ericeria's surrounding nature

When you decide to return from the ocean to explore the land which the ocean so dearly hugs, you can find many incredible places nearby to visit. Spend time at The Aldeia Típica de José Franco, a miniature village in clay in the town of Sobreiro, and the Convent of Mafra (the inspiration for Nobel Prize winner for Literature, José Saramago). It’s located in the National Tapada of Mafra, built by King D. João V after the construction of the convent in the 18th century and is nowadays a relaxing place in which you can see fallow deer, wild boar and other species of wildlife living in the wild.

05

Ericeira easy on the pocket

Ericeira offers exceptional value for money, especially for food and drink and this is because the town is geared for surfers and Portuguese tourists. Eat delicious meals at one of the dozens of seafood restaurants that specialise in freshly caught fish with flavour rarely tasted anywhere else in the world.
