At least one Australian has died after falling from a cliff in a seaside town in Portugal, according to local media.

Reports said two Australians may have been taking selfies when they fell about 30 metres in the town of Ericeira.

But the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it was providing consular assistance to the family of only one Australian who died in Portugal.

"The Department has been in contact with the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office regarding the other person who died in the incident," a DFAT spokesperson told the ABC.

Two bodies were recovered early on Tuesday (local time), reports said.

Ericeira is a popular surfing and fishing town about 35 kilometres north-west of the capital Lisbon.
