Ericeira or Lagos?

Hello! I am an Aussie gal that is looking to travel to Portugal for some fun in the sun, a bit of surfing and a good night out or two.

Who can tell me where is better - Ericeira or Lagos??

Thanks!! :-)

Ericeira for surfing, Lagos for the beauty of its beaches, warmer water and nightlife.

Although Ericeira is well known for surfing you can also surf near Lagos.

There's a chance for foggy weather conditions in Ericeira; not in Lagos.

I suggest you visit Lagos.

If you want surf atmosphere it's Ericeira (THE surf spot) if you want beach/tourist atmosphere it's Lagos.

Ericeira offers you a lot of World Surf (and nature) Reserve. Praia do Coxo is one of them. if you feel like up for the challenge Praia do Coxo is the place. Ericeira has beach and reef break,
