Surf Spot
“If you're surfing in Ericeira, then you've probably parked here and walked by the restaurant on the way to catch your waves. Its located directly underneath that intensely high and amazing viewpoint right as you pass Ribamar and enter Ericeira. The waves here are great but you do need to wear the surf booties because there's a lot of reef. Once you've made it out, the waves are easy to catch and less populated than other wave breaks. Summer can be quite crowded with groups from the Surfing schools, but they tend to stick close to the shore. The bathrooms are clean and easy to access plus they have Sagres and Super Bock on deck for that perfect after surf drink. There are board rentals in the rear for those who didn't bring their board to Portugal, and 3-4 Surf Schools for those wanting to give Surfing a try. The food is great and it's a major surf meet-up spot where tourists and locals gather to take in the Surf-culture that embodies Ericeira. Here's a handy link to a 7-day Surf Forecast at Ribeira d'Ilhas: https://magicseaweed.com/Ribeira-dIlhas-Surf-Report/4343/ Here's another handy link to a beach-cam located at the beach: https://beachcam.meo.pt/livecams/ribeira-dilhas/”

Cafe
“Best pizza in and around Ericeira! This is a local favourite and not too many tourists knows about this jewel with stunning sunset views as it is a bit outside the city. However the drive here is well worth it Make sure to test their Presunto, Vegeterian and 4 cheeses pizzas.”
