Lifestyle! Ericeira village, Portugal

Hello dear readers,

I took these pictures of Ericeira, the city where my uncle lives in. It’s a very lovely town near Lisbon and close on the coast. Ericeira, perched on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic, is a growing fishing village with a charming ambiance. Its pretty narrow streets with whitewashed chapels and white houses edged in blue are a joy to wander around before heading to the sandy beaches, or to a superb seafood dinner at one of the many popular restaurants. Its surfing waves are world-famous – the beach of Ribeira das Ilhas is considered one of the best surfing spots in Europe and is the site of World Surfing Championships.

More fine beaches are found about 20km (12 miles) northeast by the city of Torres Vedras. The beach of Santa Cruz is especially picturesque and Porto Novo has a broad sandy beach and golf course.

Enjoy the pictures!

xoxo
