The earthly paradise

To talk about Comporta is to talk about sensations, to feel the sea breeze, to walk along its long beach, to do it on horseback, to feel alone, to recharge your batteries, to buy striped towels to go back home, to eat good fish, to eat at Sal, to swim in the swimming pool over the rice fields of Quinta da Comporta, to have a cocktail at Sublime, to buy a dinner service or any pareo at Lavanda.

Comporta used to be a secret, and now that it is known by most. Comporta is September. It is the month of Comporta.

Comporta is not just a village, it is an area or region that stretches from the south of Troia to Melides.

What to do?

The importance of the sun. A sunrise on horseback thanks to Cavalos na Areia or a sunset in the harbour on stilts of Carrasqueira.

A visit to the village of Carrasqueira, ask for Mr. Ismael’s house. It is not your average fish and seafood market.

Visit Mélides, Carvalhal, Alcacer do Sal, Muda. Rent a bike with sand tyres at Cavalos Na Areia.

Try any of the handmade ice creams at Gulato, a nice ice cream parlour in the village of Comporta.

Sunset in port of Carrasqueira


Velharias Sara and Velharias Rua de Alto de Pina, both in Carvalhal, where you can find plates, cutlery, small furniture, books and antique objects to decorate.

Decorate with a more sophisticated touch at Rice, by Marta Mantero, and Storck Club.

Give colour to your home at Coral, tableware, books, mugs, fabrics.

Be fashionable with Comporta Style at Côté Sud and Lavanda.

And highly recommended are the shops with local groceries. Finger-licking good. Mercearia Gomes and Minimercado Matias in Carvalhal.
