Surfcamp Portugal HQ: Foz do Lizandro
After checking out the view from above Foz do Lizandro, Portugal (at the bottom of the page) you’re going to want to see it from the ground and ocean; to feel the warm sun, salt spray and cool sea breezes on your face. This is the Portugal that everyone dreams about. This is the home of Rapture Surfcamp Portugal.
Praia do Lizandro also known as Praia do Foz do Lizandro, is just 2 km or 1 mile south of Ericeira village. It’s a popular family and water sports beach and great for surfing, sunbathing and picnicking. This wide and sandy beach stretches inland along a river, providing lots of space on the beach and great surf for all levels, from beginners to pros. A river mouth beach break, Foz is a great place to learn how to surf and just steps from Rapturecamps surf school.
Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the beach and surf school HQ, our surf resort Foz do Lizandro offers accommodation in either a traditional whitewashed villa or in one of two rustic wooden bungalows. The resort was was included in an article in the Guardian, titled “Five of Portugal’s best surf lodges“. Here’s what they had to say about Surf Resort Portugal:
Hidden away near the beach at Foz do Lizandro, just outside Ericeira, the two wooden chalets and small cottage at Helios overlook a quiet river valley dotted with farms. The decor is simple and each self-catering house sleeps up to four. The beach is right on the doorstep for those keen to ride the waves and you can chill out in hammocks or take a yoga lesson. In addition to surf lessons, owner Clara will help you arrange everything from an on-site massage to pony trekking along the sands or bike hire. She will also happily organise a lift for guests to go the shops for supplies.
