Comporta Beach Portugal

Praia da Comporta is the busiest beach in the area, attracting many visitors from Spain, Portugal, and the Capitals of Europe.

This beach in Comporta is a great beach for families, couples or individuals.

The dark blue ocean sometimes looks an emerald green and embraces the golden shoreline for 5.km until it reaches the almost private beach in Comporta, Brejos da Carregueira.

If you are lucky enough, you may get to witness the Bottlenose dolphin pod as they travel down the coast from Troia and back again.

The beach is located at the extremes of the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve and the beginning of the Atlantic Ocean.

It is enhanced by the wildness of the dunes and the rustling pine forest behind.

Brejos da Carregueira Beach Comporta

Praia dos Brejos da Carregueira in Comporta Portugal is as close to a private beach as one can get.

This beach in Comporta stretches between Torre and Carvalhal and the only way to access it by car is through the rice fields, the pine forest and over the dunes to the beach and in order to do this you require a pass.

All the homeowners in Brejos have passes, so if you are here on vacation, the owners should have left one in the house for you.

You could arrive at the beach if you travelled by foot either from Torre or Carvalhal beach, which very few people ever do.

Praia dos Brejos Comporta

Provides a small private car park after the rice fields and just before the pine forest and therefore you will have to hike for about 5 minutes until you arrive at the shore. Some beach goers arrive by quad bike.

There are no bathrooms, restaurants, bars, or any type of service at this beach, so if you intend to spend some time there you will need a picnic basket and a few drinks.

The beach is extremely quiet and almost like a club, as many of the beach goers know each other personally.

When returning from the beach, try to avoid sunset hours, as this is the time when the mosquitoes are around, and you may get bitten once or twice.

This stretch of beach is utterly amazing with small grains of pure golden sand and an expansive beach on either side of the restaurant.

Pego beach in Comporta has been the hangout of the elitist Portuguese banking family Espirito Santo and friends for many years and seems almost to be an exclusive, invitation only beach to be seen at; although it isn’t, and anybody can go there.

The view from the beach is on to the vast expansion of the Atlantic Ocean with the odd fishing vessel passing by.

Occasionally and if you are lucky enough, you may get to see the Sado Estuary resident, bluenose dolphin pod passing by which is a stunning sight and gets everybody to their feet.

The beach is made up of small grains of golden sand that shines in the sun whilst behind, you are engulfed by the indigenous seeded dunes and immense pine forest backdrop.

For most of the year with exception of the winter season, the Atlantic Ocean that swells on to Pego Beach is relatively calm and contrasts between deep ocean blue and beautiful emerald green.

The beach is suitable for swimming, surf, and bodyboarding.
