Comporta Location & Weather

Discover more than you’d ever imagined

If Comporta seems small on the map, in reality it’s a land without end. Nestled between the Atlantic and Alentejo, Comporta is located on the boundaries of the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, preserving its traditions and abundant natural and cultural charms within.

Where the summer lasts six months

Comporta offers perfect temperatures for sunbathing and a dip in the sea. This is because the region is embraced by a mediterranean climate and is close to the Atlantic, contributing towards a hot and dry summer and a winter that is pleasantly mild

Comporta is a land with soul.

A soul that lives within its people. As much is said about the people of the sea - who are dedicated fishermen, very often in families who share their boat and lives - as the people who work the land, the rice growers who have been growing rice in the region since 1836, an agricultural tradition that is part of both the past and present of Comporta.
