Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

PEDRA BRANCA

The first wave we find opposite the campsite of Ericeira, is the Pedra Branca, located at the southern tip of Empa beach. It is a very fast left bottom reef getting ripples from quadrant to quadrant SO W / NO. Due to the shallow bank of the reef being exposed to a very low tide, it is usually surfed from half the incoming tide to high tide. Regular and dangerous, this wave is characterized by an area of fast starts, followed by a tube to the inside.

REEF

Continuing along the Empa beach, bordered by a small cliff,  we find 300 meters north of the twin sister, Pedra Branca, a wave that is called Reef. This dangerous and regular wave has a very short and quick take-off zone followed by a cylindrical tube that ends exactly on the exposed surface inside the board. Only works with ripples of N to NO, with half tide.

RIBEIRA D’ILHAS

Walking 500 meters to the north, you will find the most mediatic wave of the Surf Reserve. Its geographical setting is a natural amphitheater, ideal for holding surfing events. Here toke place the first national and international championships held in Portugal. With ripples of W/NO, Ribeira d’Ilhas can provide rights up to 200 meters long. This valuable and competitive wave allows the most different levels of approach by surfers.

CAVE

On the south flank of the Bay of Two Brothers, with an angle of coastline still facing south, we find the Cave. This powerful right has only been recently ridden, having gained immense notoriety in recent years because of the spectacle and dangers that entails. It is extremely radical, tubular and risky.
Parts of a sudden reef plate that does not connect with the land are located at very little depth. The basement should be used only for very experienced surfers, and even to those it is advisable to use protection.

Level of practice: 7 - Surfers able to complete with control and fluidity different combinations of 7 maneuvers on the same wavelength and be comfortable underwater in powerful waves of at least 4 meters.

CRAZY LEFT

Along the southern shore of the bay, you will find Crazy Left, a pointbreak that just breaks well with ripples of N and NO. Being too exposed to the north wind, is not a very consistent wave in terms of quality, but when the ideal conditions take place, its walls are quick and tubular, with several sections that provide great speed. Because it is situated in a flow of water from the bay area, it only gets perfect waves above 2 meters.

COXOS

Inserted in a landscape that remains unspoiled since it began to be attended in the early 70s, the wave of Coxos is the one that best symbolizes the spirit of the local surfers and the values by which the World Surfing Reserve is governed: protection, preservation , sustainability. A classic pointbreak setting, with its line of surf along the contour of the coast from start to finish. It is always a strong wave that has different sections and works with different waving directions. When the conditions are ideal, provides tubes with a duration of several seconds.

São Lourenço

Leaving the Bay of Two Brothers, and walking a few minutes heading north, you will arrive at São Lourenço beach, located in a wide bay, with near 1.2 km wide. At its center, about 300 meters from the beach, is the wave of São Lourenço, the last that integrates the Reserve. These rights depart on a rocky plateau, forming fast and very embodied water waves due to its peaks being located at a considerable distance from the beach.
