Really enjoyed our stay at Aktion Ericeira Surf Hostel, stunning location with a great sea view. Amazing indoor and outdoor space so you can chill in the grounds of the hostel no matter what the weather. Close to town and the local beaches. Very reasonable price that includes breakfast, friendly and helpful staff!

My experience in Portugal was full of “pinch me, this can’t be real” moments. I never expected that arriving at a hostel in a surf town would also inspire that feeling. The Aktion in Ericeira is the most mind blowing hostel I’ve ever stayed at. It feels more like being at a modern luxury resort. The staff and volunteers were chill, kind, and friendly. The view is great. The building, rooms and space in general are really cool and clean. Everything about this hostel is impressive. I’d recommend!

It’s a brand new hostel so everything's new and very well equipped. We were one of their first guests and the staff was super friendly and welcoming! There is also a very chilled atmosphere. Definitely recommend staying there!

This is a truly beautiful hostel! We stayed here in the off season when it was incredibly inexpensive and it was a dream. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfy and the beds are great. there are tons of facilities that make the stay so easy and homey and the view from the common area is quite incredible. Would definitely recommend!

Ribeira d`ilhas

Level: All Levels

One of the most consistent breaks in Europe. When it`s epic, Ribeira D`Ilhas boosts a very long righthander with various playful sections: as fun as it gets! Mostly quite crowded, especially in the summer, but on an average day the wave doesn`t connect over the whole length, breaking the wave into several peaks with plenty of waves

Cave

Level: Advanced

A slab that creates waves for experienced surfers only. The heaviest wave in the Ericiera region.

Coxos

Level: Advanced

The queen of all waves in the Ericeira World Surfing Reserve and one of the most famous righthanders in Europe. Groundswells roll into the small bay and unload on a reef bottom, often with fierce power. The wave changes according to swell direction, period and wind direction, but is always fun.

Praia do Sul and Pescadores

Level: All Levels

A great spot for beginners as the jetty provides shelter from the big sneaker sets. Stunning views of Ericeira fishing port from the surf.

Praia do Matadouro

Level: Intermediate

A versatile bay with several peaks that vary in quality, shape and power. A good option to get used to surfing on reef with little or no dangerous rocks sticking out. When it`s windy it`s one of the only spots in Ericeira suitable for kite – and windsurfers too.

Reef

Level: Intermediate

Waves roll in from deep water and explode with full power on this sharp, shallow reef plateau. Only surf on the smaller days unless you`re a really experienced surfer.

Season

Best time to go depends on your level above. July, August & September are the peak tourist months.


This is where you surf Europe's best coast line and let the fun begin.There are over 12 surf breaks along the Ericeira coast, with different options for all standards. With so much choice you'll feel like a kid in a sweet shop! The area was introduced in the Stormriders Surf Guide to Europe with the heading "Enter the Heartland".

World Surf Reserve
In 2011 it was awarded the title of 'World Surf Reserve', there are only 2 other places in the world that share the title: Santa Cruz, US and Manly, Australia.

If it is your first surfing holiday to Ericeira then head straight to Foz do Lizandro and Sao Juliao beaches south of town, they are perfect beginner and intermediate surf spots. Closer to town is Praia do Sul. Another great beginner beach breaks. All best at mid tide but surfable at high and low tide also.

For Intermediates you have the reliable and safe reef break Ribeira d'Ilhas, which host the WSL World qualifying series surf championships every year. And for the more adventurous you have the world class Coxos. That's just naming a few, there are too many surf breaks to mention here!

Don't forget to explore further up the coast - 25 minutes away is Santa Cruz and an hour away is Peniche, home to the World renowned Supertubos and host of the Rip Curl Pro since 2009. 30 minutes south of Lisbon is the Cascais coast with the famous Praia do Guincho surf beach. And when north winds are blowing you can venture further south towards Carcevelos beach and the other surf spots along the Lisbon coast.
