A Truly Oasis

Comporta still has several desert beaches even in high summer like Pinheirinho with its orange cliffs (reminding us the Grand Canyon or even Petra in Jordan due to its color and shapes). Torre Beach, accessible through the rice fields near the small village with the same name, where you can start your journey by doing a delicious walk on the rice fields and dunes before you envisage the true blue of the atlantic ocean. Next you can reach Brejos beach favourite of the French community. Finally and further south you find Vigia Beach known as Louboutin Beach since the famous shoe designer bought a property nearby.

For those aiming for more trendy environments, to see and be seen, Pego beach is the ideal spot. A wonderful beach with all the amenities for a perfect day by the sea, including delicious drinks and snacks, sunset parties with great DJ’s where one can dance on the sand while watching the sun fall in the sea, and the famous Sal Restaurant with its hippy chic atmosphere and an excellent selection of grilled fish and some few delicious dishes and desserts (don’t miss the lemon pie).
Also by the beach, at Carvalhal beach, try O Dinis (open all year around), a simple refugee without the glamour of other spots but with best fish in the region, honouring the tradition of the owners, a family of seasoned fishermen.
Besides the beaches, you also can relax with Yogashala Comporta. In the middle of a pine tree forrest, with bright green rice fields on your horizon ending in infinite sand dunes. After your yoga experience you can’t a miss a horseback riding in the fields and the dunes with Cavalos na Areia!
