Tucked gracefully along Portugal’s Blue Coast, Comporta area is comprised of charming seaside towns filled with warm, friendly residents who love sharing their rich culture, as well as excellent restaurants, cafes, shops and beach clubs to explore.

Beach Hangs

Our favorite of Comporta’s many wonderful beaches, includes Praia du Pego near the town of Carvalhal. It offers miles of soft white sand and crystal blue water. It has a warm, family-friendly vibe that is made even more enjoyable with a stop at Sal, Praia du Pego’s excellent beachside restaurant. Carvalhal Beach is another favorite. It is a nice broad beach, generally spacious and uncrowded with a collection of restaurants and shops nearby. Likewise, Praia da Comporta is simply stunning. The beach is immense which makes it easy to find a secluded spot and the waves are gentle. Also the nearby cafes are excellent.

Day Trips

The region boasts countless fun and adventurous excursions. A favorite for those who would like a little exercise along with sightseeing is the 9km stroll from Quinta da Comporta to Comporta Village. The path follows some gentle hills and meanders along the lovely rice fields filled with storks and other wildlife. An amazing lunch at Comporta Café or Museu do Arroz awaits at the end.

Local Villages

In our little corner of paradise, Comporta refers both to the well-known seaside town, as well as the surrounding area. Other popular villages include Carvalhal, Carrasquira, Torre and Brejos. While they share similarities, each has its own individual charms, with fantastic shops and restaurants, one-of-a-kind treasures and interesting stories waiting for you to discover.

Favorite Restaurants

Restaurants in Comporta range from casual beachside cafes and wonderful family-owned restaurants and exceptional world-class cuisine. Some of our favorites include Sublime Beach Club at Carvalhal Beach which serves up exceptional locally inspired dishes and international cuisine. Gomes Casa de Vinhos & Petiscos is another can’t miss. Reserve a table outside and enjoy tapas and wine. For the best grilled fish, the locals all rave about Dona Bia, and for perhaps the best selection of seafood in all of Comporta, Sao Joao is the hard to beat.
