More than a place, Comporta is a state of mind.

Comporta, a tiny little village on Portugal’s Tróia peninsula, is home to some of the most stunning unspoiled beaches in Portugal and offers an otherworldly diversity of natural systems such as rice paddies, salt marshes and bogs.

Somewhere in between these 65kms of natural coastline, featuring dozens of palm umbrellas and surrounded by quite stretches of sand and shallow turquoise sea, you will find the absolutely irresistible: Comporta beach.

This white curved beach with an impressive high degree of water transparency is the perfect getaway for anyone in search of tranquility, stunning sea vistas, and fresh clean air.

Classified as one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in the Alentejo coast, and widely considered the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, the Comporta beach is simply sublime.

As you stroll along the wooden boardwalk, you will come across more than 7.5 miles of crystalline blue water and an endless expanse of pristine white sand.
