Things to do in Comporta, Portugal
Praia da Comporta: The trendiest – and busiest – beach in Troia. So if you want to visit, be sure to come early. In the summer, you can relax on sun loungers and parasols. Pro tip: due to high demand and limited availability, it is wise to book those in advance, especially in summer.
Praia do Carvalhal: Around the beautiful Praia do Carvalhal, you can find dunes and rice fields that are home to many species of insects, birds and flowers. The beach is ideal for surfing and swimming, or just simply taking in all its beauty and letting life go by.
Praia do Pego: Hosting golden sands and lush pine forests, Pego Beach will truly take your breath away. Whether you plan to go swimming in the crystal clear water or relax on one of the sun loungers, you will not be disappointed.
Sado Estuary Natural Reserve: The reserve is a nesting and wintering area for various birds and is home to bottlenose dolphins – the only resident cetacean population that uses the estuary as a feeding and mating ground in Portugal. Winter is the best season to go on a birdwatching tour for the chance to see one of the highest concentrations of shorebirds and waders.
Located directly next to the Sado Estuary, Tróia is home to a resident pod of dolphins, making chances very high that you will see them when you visit. There are several tours that offer dolphin watching or, if you’re lucky enough, you can be surprised by their visit while enjoying one of the splendid beaches in the area.
Lavanda: When you visit Comporta, you cannot miss this beautifully curated shop with both local and international boho-chic brands. Here you can find an outstanding collection of womenswear, menswear, kidswear, home decor and accessories.
Rice: Created by interior designer Marta Montero, Rice offers home decor and design in different styles and elegance for a unique touch to your home. Marta also offers home design services upon request. It is important to note that this shop only opens its doors during the summer months.
Fio d’Água: Be sure to visit this store if you want to find the perfect piece to wear to the beach! This can be quite the task as all pieces here are curated from some of the most beautiful swimwear and beach accessory brands.
