One of Europe’s best pointbreaks located near Ericeira. With a low tide and a northwesterly swell, this powerful and hollow right-hand reef break is just flawless. No wonder it’s been dubbed Portugal’s best wave and also one of the best right-handers on the planet!
The only lefthander of the 4 best spots in Ericeira, has a super shallow (and tight, given the local bodyboarding crew) take-off zone, but if you make it you’ll be rewarded with a wide barrel. Reef can’t handle a big swell but does deliver amazing barrels from 3 to 6ft.
Ribeira de Ilhas
Is very forgiving. Halfway between Coxos and Pedra Branca, Ribeira D’Ilhas is Ericeira’s most accessible reef and one of the most consistent surf spots in Europe. Most of the time, it is a fairly easy wave and can be tackled by beginners and intermediate surfers.
A swell magnet. This is the most consistent wave in Ericeira and offers a little something for all levels. This exposed beach break has multiple peaks, both lefts and rights, and works with any swell direction and tide.
The most northerly surf spot in Ericeira. This reef break can hold up to 6m (18ft) of powerful and hollow surf. With a big northwesterly swell, it becomes one of Portugal’s biggest and heaviest waves.
Is the heaviest wave in Ericeira, famous for its spitting tubes. It starts in deep water and progresses over a shallow reef, breaking in front of a rock. It delivers some of the best spitting tubes in Portugal, and also some of the worst wipeouts. John John Florence got injured here in 2012; that’s how unforgiving it is.
