This beautiful seaside town, once home for the Phoenicians, became the county of Ericeira in 1229. By then, seafarers, royalty and wanderers already enjoyed the same beaches, valleys and bays as we do today.
In 2011, Ericeira became the first World Surf Reserve in Europe, second in the world. A place praised for 8 km of shoreline brimming with world class surf spots, and one of the most preserved surf-havens on the planet.
This ancient fisherman village has an amazing coastline, therefore exploring this 6 Km of the coast is a must do, you will find 8 different beaches where you can sunbathe, fall asleep with the relaxing sound of the waves, have a meal with a sea view or toast to the sunset and to another well spent day. If you enjoy walking or biking there are a few off-road tracks that you can use to get to know the town and its surrounding areas, there are a few rent-a-bike shops that also have scooters available.
Here you have the most incredible blend of tradition and excitement, and you can find that in the narrow cobbled streets. Quirky houses, traditional and modern restaurants serving the most delicious food, Cafes, bakeries, shops, markets and warm-hearted people who will keep you coming back. During the summer the streets will have live music, streets fairs, bars opened until 2:00 am, 7 days a week. And if you have the energy you can hit the club until 7:00 am. If you seeking for more adventure you can enjoy the skatepark, one of the elected spots to watch the sun setting especially on Fridays where you can enjoy it with live music.
At the surf camp, we offer a few activities to make your days a bit more special.
During the week you can book a horse riding tour that will take you on an adventure through the valleys and beach. A guided cycling tour through the World Surf Reserve, have a wine tasting experience at a local wine producer or treat yourself with a full-body Ayurvedic massage on camp.
