Foz do Lizandro

Everything you need to now about this surf spot

Foz do Lizandro is a beach break that is formed by a rivermouth. You will find multiple peaks along the beach, but normally there is a left on the south side of the beach and an a-frame with left and rights in the middle of the beach. The north side of the beach is rocky and here you find two reef breaks: Lage dos Tubos and Limipicos. Foz do Lizandro is very consistent. The left at the rivermouth can be your best bet in Ericeira with southern wind since it’s sheltered by some cliffs. Occasionally, the sand bars line up properly and then this wave turns into a classy affair with long and hollow lefts.

The beach break is normally best from low to mid tide, but with bigger swells also higher tide can be good. The waves are most of the time fun and easy to surf when the waves are smaller. This combined with the sandy bottom make it a popular beach among surf schools, ideal for beginners. With bigger swell, the rips are strong and dangerous. The best swell direction is coming from the southwest or west and the best wind direction is east. There are great facilities on the beach: good car park, showers and some nice cafés.
