We have got a Guest House in ERICEIRA - MECA OF SURF in Europe and we are palced 500 meters from Ribeira dìlhas (WCT contests and so on) and our guest house it is in front of a good surf spot too.

We have to offer: accommodations, weekly packages, rental of surfboards, wetsuits, bicycles and CAR RENTAL for very good prices; you do not need to have a w wheel drive to go around here, it is enough a normal car.

A 4wheel drive could be handy, but not necessary. Many of the beaches, although down dirt tracks, can be reached by a normal car. try for accomodation in west algarve. Have a good trip!
