Blue Buddha Surf Hostel Ericeira
Reviews (2)
4 out of 5

A typical Portuguese building built in the 1950' turned into a Hostel that overlooks the ocean.
The hostel is divided across 3 floors with a mix of double, twin, triple rooms, family rooms, apartments and dormitories. The hostel has shared bathrooms, eqipped kitchens, lounge and dining areas, and outdoor seating spaces.
We provide surf lessons and surf gear rentals as well as tours/experiences upon request, and have storage/cleaning areas for guests' surf equipment.

Location

The old town of Ericeira is an idyllic traditional fisherman village that has everything to offer and is also known for being Europe's first surf reserve.
We’re located 40km north of Lisbon, 30min drive from the airport, in the Northern part of the old town, first line to the beach, next to the São Sebastião Chappel.
From here you can walk to surf, Skate Park, supermarket, shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Everything is less than 5 minutes away.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The town was beautiful, the coastline stunning, the accommodation well located, the accommodation basic - very nice friendly staff, (except for one), nice original details in the hostel - parquet floor, marble stairs, Portuguese tiles - the kitchen Hobs for cooking very substandard - but would probably stay again in a private room and if the cooking facilities were improved - the staff really made it nice though

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.
