Ericeira is a civil parish and seaside resort and fishing community on the western coast of Portugal. It is regarded by some as being Europe's Surf Mecca, due to the exceptional coastline conditions for the practice of surf. It is home for Ericeira's World Surfing Reserve, the first in Europe and the second in the world. Ericeira was a popular summer retreat for many of Lisbon's families in the 1940s and 1950s. Today, it is a popular destination for local and visiting tourists, as well as surfers from around the world, owing to the forty beaches with good conditions in the area.


Picturesquely draped across sandstone cliffs above the blue Atlantic, sunny, whitewashed Ericeira is popular with lisboêtas seeking a quick weekend getaway. It’s equally renowned for spectacular ocean vistas and excellent seafood restaurants. The town’s old centre is clustered around Praça da República, with the sprawl of newer development spreading south and north. Lately it is the beaches that have been grabbing all the attention as a burgeoning surf culture increasingly focuses on the quality of Ericeira's many waves. Portugal's most famous surfer, Tiago Pires, hails from Ericeira, where there are more than 30 spots that offer good surf. One of these, the renowned beach of Praia da Ribheira d'Ilhas, 3 kilometers north of the town, is now a regular stop on the ASP world surfing tour. 


The closest major airport to Ericeira, Portugal is Lisbon Portela Airport . This airport is in Lisbon, Portugal and is 47 km from the center of Ericeira, Portugal.
