As your social media feed will attest, Portugal is one of the hottest travel destinations in the world right now, with Comporta leading the pack as the beach town of choice for fashion’s elite. Here’s where to stay, eat and go while you’re there.
Casas na Areia
Arguably the resort that made Comporta a new it-destination, these converted masonry buildings are as bohemian-luxe as it gets. Think crisp white linen and modern interiors, contrasted with natural wood and a sandy-floored living room. And if you can tear yourself away from the sleek pool, it’s just a short stroll to the town’s beautiful beach.
In the heart of Comporta, Cavalariça blends the old—a converted stable house setting and traditional Portuguese cuisine—with modern airy interiors and unique culinary twists. Other notable culinary highlights in the area include sister restaurants Ihla do Arroz and Museu do Arroz (situated on the beach and in the village, respectively), which have been offering phenomenal seafood for over 20 years and are frequented by Europe’s gliterrati.
Embrace the town’s free-spirited vibes with a horseback ride along Comporta’s stunning beaches. We recommend Cavalos na Areia company, where you’ll receive a lesson and an instructor. Don’t forget your swimsuit for a post-ride dip!
