The World Surfing Reserve
Ericeira’s coast line can offer you a variety of incredible surf spots, from beach breaks to reef breaks, perfect for all steps of a surfer progression, from absolute beginner to advanced level.
As well as a good part of the Portuguese west coast line, these beaches are marked by the magnificence of some cretaceous period cliffs, offering very consistent Surf, with waves rolling over sand or rock formations, going left or right from one foot to overhead size.
In 2011, the international organization Save the Waves Coalition granted to Ericeira the condition of World Surfing Reserve, a distinction only comparable to the UNESCO World Patrimony, but for the waves, that obliges the local authorities to preserve Ericeira’ coast line.
We will always walk with the Ericeira’s authorities on this difficult mission!
