When people hear of an under-the-radar vacation destination on the brink of becoming a household name, it’s easy to draw parallels to other more established hotspots. Hence why you might hear Comporta compared to the Hamptons or Tulum. We totally get the intention, but that’s essentially the travel equivalent of saying “all white meat tastes like chicken.” Just as other proteins have their own unique flavor, so does this low-key fishing village and freguesia (civil parish) on the Alentejo coast of Portugal. A landscape defined by cork oaks, blustery dunes, sandy beaches and rice paddies invites travelers to relish slow mornings sans alarm clocks, barefoot strolls, leisurely lunches and afternoons that melt into the evening.
Mark our words, Comporta is the next *it* holiday haunt—and we’re giving you the inside scoop before it totally blows up.
