The beaches are similar to those you might find in Cascais and the local area but are less crowded in the summer months.
As you might expect, the local area is much quieter than the Algarve and offers a more laidback, bohemian lifestyle. It has what some have called a ‘hip’ atmosphere and has tempted many a celebrity for its more low-key scene. It is fast developing a reputation for being Portugal’s most ‘chic’ resort yet still stays unspoiled. Some have likened Comporta to resembling Ibiza before the crowds descended and clouded the reasons for coming in the first place.

It differs from anywhere you have been in the past. The name Comporta – indicates a gate that keeps back water, a lock. Which makes sense when you see the number of canals there are. This is rice-paddy land. Great, stripey fields of rice, the greatest in Portugal, stretch all the way down the coast, protected from the stiff Atlantic breezes by dune.
In the heat of summertime, when the rest of the country (bar the Algarve golf courses) is dusty and dry, this location still thrums with life. Rice farmers have remained in Comporta considering that the start of time, as have the anglers and salt makers. They have actually formed the appearance of the landscape in this part of Portugal, dotted with cork oaks, covered with radiant red poppies and yellow carpets of wildflowers, and saved the distinct architecture – little, low-built, thatched cabanas, hooped with firmly loaded grasses from the riverbanks and beams of wood from the pine forests.
In high summertime, makeshift stalls pepper the side of the roadway, stacked with watermelons, artichokes, tomatoes that taste of sunlight. Knobbly lemons the size of grapefruit hang heavy from the trees. The ground pours forth flowers and veggies and fruit. It’s hard to think about anywhere else so fertile, so plentiful.
If you are searching for a little piece of Portugal which remains unspoiled, with no major development, no high-rise hotels or main highways running through the middle, Comporta is the place for you. The local area around Comporta is mainly set aside for agriculture and is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
