Pescadores (or Peixe) Beach
This is the Municipality’s most historically relevant beach, as it was from here that, on 5 October 1910, the Portuguese Royal Family set sail into exile after the Establishment of the Republic was declared. It is also one of the most visited beaches, whether due to its centrality (the old part of Ericeira is exactly above) or due to the expanse of sand and its sheltered situation from the south and south-east winds. It has small portable beach support facilities during the swimming season, as well as fixed toilet facilities, integrated into the Fishing Harbour area. The beach is supervised by the SOS Praia (Beach SOS) system.
