In July, Ericeira is going to be invaded by the good vibes of Sumol Summer Fest. Come and celebrate the beginning of summer to the sound of good music!
Other ingredients of this Festival are the beach and the sea, in an area well known to surfers, who find some of the best waves in the country here. In a prime setting in the iconic town of Ericeira with all the mystique surrounding the Mecca of surfing, Sumol Summer Fest invites you to enjoy a memorable weekend at Ericeira Camping, with a fantastic view towards the Ribeira d’Ilhas beach.
The blend of music, beach and waves is the formula for success kept up by Sumol Summer Fest, which makes this weekend in Ericeira one of the best to celebrate the beginning of some memorable holidays with friends!
Close to Lisbon, Ericeira is an old fishing village that has gained a new life with the growth of surfing in Portugal. It is currently recognized as one of the world's surfing reserves and is part of the main world championships.
The great attraction of Ericeira are the beaches and the waves. The beaches are formed by small coves that are found among the high cliffs of this coast. Of particular note are Ribeira de Ilhas, Dois Irmãos Bay, known as Coxos, Empa beach, in front of the village, and São Lourenço beach. For those who want to take surf lessons (to learn or improve), you can count on the various local companies.
As an alternative to the beach, those who want to do something different can go to Mafra one day to visit the 16th century Convent. XVIII that inspired the Nobel of literature José Saramago to write the "Memorial of the Convent" or go to the National Tapada, a small forest where you can see bucks, deers, wild boars and other wild species living in freedom. Another suggestion is to visit, in Malveira, the Recovery Center of the Iberian Wolf, a species that is a autochthonous and endangered species.
