- ABOUT THE SPOT
Bodyboarding in Foz do Lizandro, Ericeira, Lisbon and Coast Portugal
It’s a civil parish in the municipality of Mafra, in Portugal. This small village is well know for its fresh fish and other seafood. It combines peacefulness with the history of ancient art. Walk through the cobbled streets and find the Sta. Casa da Misericórdia da Ericeira Museum.
Visit the Casa de Cultura Jaime Lobo E Silva, the cultural center or the municipal library (Biblioteca Municipal da Ericeira). Enjoy the lights of the sun throughout the year.
However, if all these treasures are simply not enough for you, find Foz do Lizandro beach and run straight ahead to the curly waves. They are original classic and with right and left direction. They are powerful and funny. The swell size starts working at 1.0 m-1.5 m / 3 ft-5 ft and holds up to 3 m+ / 10 ft+.
In summer, the wind blows offshore 0,6% and the waves swell size is most of the time <1.5 m/5 ft but on good days there are waves with swell size 1.3-2 m (4-6.5 ft). In autumn, the wind blows offshore 7% and the waves swell size, in the good surf days, is from 1.3 to 3 m (4-10 ft). In spring, the wind blows offshore 6% and the waves swell size is <1.5 m/5 ft and on good days, the swell size is 1.3-2 m (4-6.5 ft). In the winter, the wind blows offshore 12% and when the waves have a temper for games, the swell size is 2-3 m (6.5-10 ft).
In Ericeira, when you are not breaking the waves, there are other activities you can do on your spare time and beautiful accommodations to host your exhausted body.
