Portugal Off The Beaten Path: 322 reviews and 400 photos


A traditional fishing village, Ericeira has developed quit a lot the last 30 years due to the growing interest in it as a summer resort. It has, however, maintained its original characteristics and its own individual atmosphere.
50 kilometres from Lisbon, in an easily accessible area, its beaches are very crowded during the summer, and are considered among the best in Europe for surfing. Ribeira d`Ilhas Beach, helds every year a world championship with the best surfers world wide
A visit to Ericeira is also an excellent opportunity to try the shellfish and fresh fish dishes, the speciality of the regional cuisine.
