A 45-minute drive from Lisbon, Ericeira is one of Portugal’s lesser-known beach break destinations – but it doesn’t deserve its understudy status. A band of powdery sand fronts this fishing village, and prettily-painted blue and white buildings line its cobbled streets. You’ll find some of the best hotels inside these characterful properties, now bookable via Culture Trip. Other top options brush up to the beach.

Set on Ericeira’s main square, Capitão Guest House puts you within footsteps of the town’s best bars and restaurants and the biscotti-coloured sands of Pescadores Beach. The hotel’s decor celebrates Ericeira’s fishing history. There are curios like boat steering wheels and lanterns dotted around communal spaces, and rooms have sailor-blue colour schemes. Make sure you’re up in time for breakfast – the spread includes freshly squeezed juice, home-made jams and fresh bread and pastries from the local bakery.

You and the Sea Hotel and Apartments

Each one features sand and sea colour schemes, kitchenettes, balconies – including some with Atlantic Ocean views – and finishing touches like driftwood headboards. There’s a sea-view swimming pool on site, for when you don’t feel like making the five-minute walk to Praia du Sol beach. Plus, there’s a smart restaurant with a New York loft look that serves dishes like squid-ink risotto and oven-fired pizzas.

Every room at Villa Ana Margarida Hotel is named after a figure from the Age of Discovery, such as Portuguese epic poem writer Luís de Camões and explorer Pedro Álvares Cabral. The hotel’s quirks don’t stop there: the reception desk is made from stacks of vintage suitcases and the whole place wraps around a courtyard that’s accessed via a helter skelter-shaped metal staircase. The hotel’s other outdoor space is a sun-trap roof terrace, which looks out over the sea.

    The timeline of this guesthouse, near Ericeira’s main square, can be traced back to 1902 when the building was used by the local sardine-fishing industry.
