Ericeira

Ericeira - Mafra

Information

Ericeira is a lovely traditional fishing village that has developed enormously during the 20th century, becoming more and more a summer resort. Nevertheless it has been able to maintain its original characteristics and its own individual atmosphere, with old winding narrow streets filled with colourful houses over the ocean and a very special light.
Fifty kilometres from Lisbon, in an easily accessible area, its beaches are very crowded during summer time, and are considered among the best in Europe for Surfing. In fact, in Ribeira d`Ilhas Beach is held every year one of the World Surfing Championship contests.
A visit to Ericeira is also an excellent opportunity to try the shellfish and fresh fish dishes, the speciality of the regional cuisine, available in every of the many Restaurants in the village and in the surroundings of Ericeira as well.
