It’s a slice of the Portuguese beach paradise we all know and love, but Comporta’s charm is unique. For starters, the sparkling ocean competes with rice paddies for the best landscape backdrops for memorable selfies. Vast fields of rice protect birds sheltering along winding irrigation canals and stretch all the way to dunes framing golden sand.
To add to the nature lover’s dream, the vibe is eco-friendly with a dash of barefoot glamour. Chic villas in Comporta join wooden beach restaurants and cool bars for icy jugs of sangria. So, it’s just as easy to laze the day away in style as it is to surf or practice yoga with mesmerising views.
This laidback holiday haven is only about an hour’s drive from Lisbon’s vibrant cobbled alleyways and majestic cathedrals, but it’s worlds away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
