Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Praia dos Pescadores, also known as Fisherman’s beach or Praia do Peixe, is a surf spot in the harbour of Ericeira. It only produces surfable waves on low tide and with big swells. It’s your last bet if you are looking to surf when all other surf spots in Ericeira are maxed out.

Praia dos Pescadores offers a mellow wave that can either break to the left or right depending on the sandbanks and swell direction. The left is normally the most consistent. It’s also a great spot for beginners as it breaks over sand and the jetty provides shelter from the big sneaker sets.

From the water you have a nice view towards Ericeira and its harbour. But please be aware when surfing here. On bigger days, the rip current along the pier can pull you out of the harbour!
