Week crowdFew surfers
This spot has a good central peek that generates good rights and lefts. It works either with low tide and high tide. There are also other two minor peeks that generate a left and a right wawe.
During the low tide is possible to learn to surf.
The water is very cold :(
The locals are really friendly and usually there are enough waves for all. If the conditions are not very good usally it is not crowded.
The beach is very nice and not crowded. There are some nice bar and restaurant where eat fresh fish.
It's a nice spot not too much difficult where surf for an entire week without boring.

- Have just spent a week surfing along the Ericeira coast and this is a great beach break.
Can get pretty heavy for beginners and the is a strong drift that can drag you north towards the rocks but the surf can be cool even when other, more highly regarded, reefs aren't working.
Was working particularly well 2 hours either side of low tide when I was there.
Give the locals the respect they deserve and you won't have any problems

Not for begginers? - Weel, I am a begginer and got caught in cross and outgoing rip in mid-high tide. As the waves are a bit beach break it's not easy to learn. Nevertheless, a great spot!

Aparrantly I went to the most boring bar in Ericeira, I must be boring coz i thought it was great! Think it was called Bar Neptune?
