Praia do Sul

2/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Praia do Sul, also called Praia da Baleia, is the name of the beach just south of Ericeira center. It has multiple peaks, but the middle one is often referred to as Praia do Sul. The other breaks are Furnas on the north side of the beach and Papucos on the south side, right next to the peer. This beach only has surfable waves with a little bit bigger swells. In the summer months it’s usually flat.

Here you can find both left and rights breaking over sand, but take care of the big rocks in the water. Although not the best wave in town, this spot has some shelter from the prevailing north winds and can be fun when everything else is blown-out. Pay attention to the rocks close to the beach.
