Holidays to Ericeira
The small, sun drenched town of Ericeira lies above the Atlantic on Portugal's west coast. Its waves and swells make for some of the best surfing in the world, while the golden beaches are breezy suntraps, ideal for working on your tan. The whitewashed walls and blue facades cluster around the central square, Praca de Republica. With pretty churches, excellent restaurants serving up gutsy Portuguese cuisine, and Lisbon's sights only 50km away, Ericeia is Portuguese perfection.
