Comporta and the region

Comporta is a region that is located in Alentejo, 1h15 from Lisbon. With easy access from the capital, it is a destination that many seek to enjoy days of vacation. Its coastline extension (more than 60 kms of sand) and its preserved area make this region one of the most sought after among European tourists. When we talk about Comporta, we talk about other villages around it. Among some, Carvalhal and Pego are famous for their restaurants and beautiful beaches. Dunas Golf Comporta will be another great attraction for the region.

On this Atlantic coast nothing can be built near the beaches. There are some kms to be respected for certain constructions, so all you feel are dunes and cliffs. It is indeed a work of nature.
