Safari Surf Adventures | Portugal Surf Camp

ERICEIRA

PORTUGAL

ABOUT THE LOCATION

Ericeira is located on the westernmost tip of continental Portugal. The town has strong seafaring traditions and has a rich history as a stepping stone for legendary explorations, adventurers and voyagers.

This old fishing community of Ericeira is picturesquely draped across sandstone cliffs, floating above the Atlantic Ocean. The traditional whitewashed town is popular with Portuguese tourists seeking a quick weekend getaway and is equally renowned for spectacular ocean vistas and excellent seafood restaurants.

WAVES AND SURF PROGRAM

Your Safari Surf Adventures surf coaching program will be led by our experienced and passionate local team. We will guide you to level appropriate waves and employ the unique SSA training curriculum in and out of the water.

A key component of our teaching philosophy is video and photo reviews, helping to track your progress and giving you focussed goals to work on throughout the program. All progress tracking, photos and videos we take of you are yours to take home at the end of your SSA adventure, giving you a great reference for continued progression whenever and wherever you surf.

We have chosen a boutique style surf-lodge which is located in the historic centre of Ericeira – a recently lovely renovated old town house from 1950’s. The rooms and lodge is entirely inspired by the Atlantic. You will find little pieces from the sea decorated here and there or a large collection of Retro Style Surfboards in various shapes, constructions or tails.

The lodge is just a few steps away from the central Praça the restaurants, bars or shops.

The rooms vary from single rooms to double / twin rooms.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

World surfing reserve

Ericeira is a world surfing reserve – so you are at the right spot to check out these incredible and beautiful waves. Some information how it became such can be found at: www.savethewaves.org
At the main square Praça da República in the centre of town you can find a small museum of the World Surfing Reserve and all the different breaks in the area and the tourist information as well.

Go for a stroll

Go walking in the centre of the village and fill its pulse. Also go to the seafront, near the main hotel, and see the old seafood nurseries. Nowadays they are obsolete, but in ancient times this place was where they breed the lobsters and sea urchins that served all the village restaurants. Since you’re wandering the village’s centre, go to the harbour. It was from this harbour that the last Portuguese king fled in exile to Brazil with the beginning of the Republic period.

Culture

Get out of Ericeira and go to Mafra, just a 15-minute drive, to visit Mafra National Palace. This 18th-century palace-monastery is a monumental construction and was a secondary residence for the Portuguese royal family: www.palaciomafra.pt
Ericeira is a 50 km drive from Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, and from Sintra, one of UNESCO’s sites. If you want to check out the dynamics of Lisbon or visit sites like the Pena Palace or Quinta da Regaleira. www.visitlisboa.com www.sintra-portugal.com
