Comporta is most certainly vying for the crown of Europe’s most ‘in’ destination at the moment. The town itself is about an hour south of Lisbon, but when people speak of Comporta they really mean the region all around it: the gorgeous swoop of Atlantic coast between the Sado Estuary and the sea that’s protected and preserved by Espírito Santo, the country’s leading banking group.
This is where A-listers come to unplug. It’s discreet yet chic with no glamour or glitz, just low-key beach living with a rather smart twist.
Think cool beach houses, wide Atlantic beaches, verdant rice fields, soaring sand dunes, surfing, seafood and beautiful, tanned people.
