This beautiful seaside town, once home for the Phoenicians, became the county of Ericeira in 1229. By then, seafarers, royalty and wanderers already enjoyed the same beaches, valleys and bays as we do today. In 2011, Ericeira became the first World Surf Reserve in Europe, second in the world. A place praised for 8 km of shoreline brimming with world to class surf spots, and one of the most preserved surf to havens on the planet. It is a small town, but full of life. Especially in the sunny seasons, when days and nights are warm and long to lasting. The centre is bubbling with people, street fairs, lovely shops and a great variety of bistros, cafes and terraces. The evening starts slow, with plenty of restaurants serving dinner until late, pubs, bars, folk parties and even a Club open until 6 am in the Summer.
Magikvanilla is a converted traditional Portuguese house with spacious common areas, sundecks, chill out spots and balconies. Winner of Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence for the 4th consecutive year, Magikvanilla is well-known for an exceptional service and unforgettable experiences. The surf camp sits in one of the few secluded properties in Ericeira. Right next to it, the community garden and a picnic park give it a feel of being surrounded by nature and sea. Within minutes, you can walk to different beaches or pop down the town centre. And you just need to go down the road to find a pharmacy, supermarket or restaurant. The camp offers dorms up to 5 people, double and twin rooms in the main house, and one bungalow – the Duke, with private bathroom and lounge. You’re also welcome to use the kitchen, barbeque and TV lounge at any time; as well as our sun decks and terraces.

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.
