Welcome to Ericeira!

Ericeira - often called the Portuguese Mecca of Surf - has become one of the best known surfing destinations in Europe. The town was honored as the first European surfing reserve due to the constant swells and excellent breaks its coastline offers. There are waves during the whole year, in winter even big wave riders find their ultimate challenge and in summer its never too small to throw an aerial 360.

Besides of offering excellent conditions which attract more and more people each year, Ericeira has managed to remain its charm. Ericeira continues to be a typical South European fishermen village proud of its long history, which dates back to the Phoenicians and got its Charter in the 12th century.

Ericeira is also famous for its gastronomy. On weekends mainly people from near Lisbon visit Ericeira's restaurants looking for fresh fish and shellfish.

Beach, Sun, Surf and Relax
In summer Ericeira is a tourist resort of excellence. The water might be a bit colder than the Mediterranean and the climate a bit rougher, but the beaches, washed daily by Atlantic waves, offer cleanest water and unpolluted air rich in healthy mineral salts.

During the bathing season most of Ericeira's beaches are watched by lifeguards. Beach bars offer cold drinks and local snacks while you spend a long day on the beach. Public toilets and showers, sunshade rental and access for disabled are standard services.

If a lazy day on the beach is not what you have in mind, we offer surf board rental and surf lessons. Come on, try it... you'll see how much fun it is !

Dinner, Caipirinha and Party
Evenings in Ericeira start with a great meal in one of its many restaurants. Fresh fish from the grill or seafood dishes in one of the "Marisqueiras" are specialties of Ericeira's gastronomy. Typical recipes like "Sopa de Cabozes" (crab, whiting-pout and mussel soup), "Caldeirada" (a rich fish, shrimps and mussels stew) or "Arroz de Marisco" (crabs, lobster and clams rice stew) are a gastronomical must to try. But you'll find also a great variety of meat restaurants, Italian cuisine, Sushi and of course pizza, burgers and toasts.

After dinner you should try a tasty Caipirinha or a Mojito in one of the many bars. Nightlife goes on until early morning hours. The oceanfront nightclub Ouriço ("Sea Urchin") is the oldest still operating nightclub in Portugal and celebrated its 50th birthday in 2011. It's the place to be seen and sometimes you have to wait a bit to pass the line !

please ask if you need infos on surflessons, board rentals, airport transfer, etc.

We had a wonderful time at the apartment. Located in a quiet and beautiful part of the town with the city centre within walkable distance. Especially loved the communal patio with BBQ!

Herwig and his friend Alex were the best! They picked us up at the bus station when we arrived, they gave us nice information about surfing and responder very quick during the holiday if we had questions. The apartment was so cosy, nice place to stay with the right equipment. We had such a wonderful holiday thanks to them!

We had the BEST stay in Ericeira!! Alex, the owner of the apartment, was there when we arrived and showed us everything. He is super kind and very very nice - we felt home straight away! He helped us with everything. The apartment was very clean and cosy, well equipped and we even got a mixer to make green smoothies every day :) The location of the apartment was perfect. It's located in the old town in a nice blue-white house, 5 minutes walking distance from the beach / supermarket / fruit market and about 10 mins to the city centre. We would highly recommend this place for a stay in Ericeira, I'm sure we'll be back! Absolutely GREAT!

Herwig User Profile

I was born in Vienna, Austria, developed a strong passion for water sports early on. While studying medicine, I became a member of the Austrian Olympic Sailing Team reaching 5th place at the Tornado Sailing World Championships in 1986.

Switching from sailing to windsurfing, three years later I had to make the difficult decision of giving up my future medical degree in favor of a professional sports career and competed for several years in the Windsurfing World Cup.

My love for the sea made me settle down in Ericeira, a Portuguese Atlantic resort near Lisbon. Since then I have been involved in several IT, Art and Tourism projects as graphic designer, web designer and programmer.

Today, I promote my holiday rentals through different platforms like this one.

btw. my nickname is Vickel
