You will find a variety of surf camps around Lisbon: Santa Cruz, Ericeira, Sintra and Costa da Caparica are suitable for every surfer regardless of surfing level. The area is known for its constant waves that roll all year round. No wonder that the only World Surfing Reserve in Europe is located here, more precisely in Ericeira, less than 50 km north-west of Lisbon. Here, the surf spots are all close to each other. Beach breaks and reef breaks make the area interesting for every surfer, whether beginner or pro. Surf contests and festivals take place all year round. The World Surf League makes a stop in Peniche, WQS and national surf contests take place in Ericeira and the ISA European Surfing Championships are held in Santa Cruz at the same time as the Ocean Spirit Festival. Besides the world class surf there is still a lot to discover. The Sintra National Park, about 145 square kilometres in size, is a must-see. The mostwestern point of Europe – Cabo da Roca – can also be found here and is one of the main attractions together with the Palácio Nacional da Pena. An unbelievably beautiful nature is waiting to be discovered! The area is also known for other sports like mountain biking, hiking, climbing and paragliding.
