Ericeira Guide

A traditional beach-and-surfing village



Ericeira, Portugal


Ericeira, perched on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic, is a growing fishing village with a charming ambience. Its pretty narrow streets with whitewashed chapels and white houses edged in blue are a joy to wander around before heading to the sandy beaches, or to a superb seafood dinner at one of the many popular restaurants.

Its surfing waves are world-famous -- the beach of Ribeira das Ilhas is considered one of the best surfing spots in Europe and is the site of World Surfing Championships.

More fine beaches are found about 20km (12 miles) northeast, by the city of Torres Vedras. The beach of Santa Cruz is especially picturesque, and Porto Novo has a broad sandy beach and golf course.

To reach Ericeira from Lisbon, take a bus of the "Mafrense" company from the Campo Grande terminal (by the Alvalade XXI stadium), where there is also frequent service to Torres Vedras. In Torres Vedras, local buses connect to Santa Cruz.
