SableTravel: Comporta Portugal

 

 

Technically summer is long gone and the cozy winter months are lying ahead. Short days, crisp air and plenty of twinkling Christmas lights. Whilst we love this special season we can never stop thinking about warm, beach filled days.  Our latest beach highlight comes from nearby Portugal. This up-and-coming hot spot has been touted as a secluded and stylish Ibiza-style escape.

BEACH: Pego Beach 

WHERE: Comporta in Portugal, a hidden gem along the Troia peninsula, just over an hour south of Lisbon. 

WHY: Pego Beach, much like its neighbouring Comporta coastline, is a beautiful long stretch of beach – and Sal, the buzzy restaurant nestled in the dunes, sets it apart. www.restaurantesal.pt

Where places like Ibiza and Mykonos can sometimes feel like hard work Comporta, in general, is an unassuming place and has long been a discreet yet chic escape for a-list celebrities. There’s nothing super fancy about it; it’s a rice-farming village along the Alentejo coast with simple low-rise architecture.

But a combination of its stylish inhabitants and the beautiful fertile land it calls home, make it something rather special. Think swathes of straight golden sands and blue surf, set against vibrant green rice paddies, evergreen-trees and pastel-coloured boutiques. There is a quiet buzz that makes you want to go back for more.

HOW TO GET THERE: Drive 120km south of Lisbon (which is a lovely start or finish to your trip) and you’ll find yourself in a chic and secluded spot that you’ll find hard to leave.

 

STAY: Sublime Comporta (https://www.sublimecomporta.pt/). A stylish resort completely in synch with its stunning surroundings. From the dappled pine pathway and straw lamps that emulate the stork’s nests in the trees, to the crisp interiors and local linens. Sublime is just heavenly!

Beauty Tip: Comporta loyalists have that effortless yet chique look nailed to an inch, so a good bronzer, highlighter and not to forget sunblock is all you need for glowing hazy lazy beach days and long fun nights.
