Day 11 – Ericeira
Ericeira is located about 30 km north of Lisbon and is THE Mecca for all surf hungry people. It is the first official surf reserve in Europe and attracts surfers from all over the world with its waves throughout the entire year. This is a must-visit during your Portugal road trip!

But even those on their way by foot will find a lot to do in this beautiful fishing village. For example, we went shopping extensively! There are many traditional small shops, vintage boutiques, shops with their mix concepts and surf shops with well-known brands and a large selection. Shopping is enjoyable here!
Also, simply strolling through the old stumbling streets and stopping for something to eat in a small bar or cosy café is an experience in Ericeira. Everything is very chilly and peaceful – of course, due to all the surfers and the charming hospitality of the locals.
Lastly, Ericeira also has a lot to offer in culinary terms. Seafood and typical Portuguese dishes dominate the cuisine. A feast for gourmets! On top, a delicious cocktail in one of the beautiful beach bars – Perfect.
Overall, Ericeira is the perfect endpoint for your Portugal road trip. Here, you can rest and recharge your batteries for the long way back home. We were very impressed by this charming fishing village, which has kept its engaging charm despite its fame.
