Tróia & Comporta
Tróia & Comporta – discover this secret paradise
Tróia is a truly paradisiacal destination, a 30 km long beach line of turquoise waters and thin golden sand one hour away from Lisbon.
If you choose to reach Troia by ferry, with a little luck you may spot the dolphins that inhabit the Sado Estuary.
At the end of the peninsula, overlooking the Arrábida mountains, a large sandbank turns the beach into a real pool of calm waters, ideal for adults to relax and children to paddle.
Between Soltróia and Comporta there are five footpaths between the dune vegetation, leading to the almost deserted beaches, for those who prefer the peace and quiet.
Sublime Comporta, the most hippie-chic area in the country, has been kept genuine, with its typical restaurants, handicrafts, and decoration shops.
For snacks or meals, there is no shortage of good restaurant options. From grilled fish to traditional recipes, rice, and seafood, in welcoming places, by the roadside, on beach terraces, or kiosks.
Going on a beach holiday doesn’t have to mean lying on a towel all day, there is more to see and experience:
– the best horseback riding in the country, which in incredible moments cross the rice fields, and climb, through the dunes to reach the deserted beach
– the observation of dolphins is a remarkable experience, which involves the participants in joy and emotion
– the Troia marina, opposite Setúbal, with space for about 200 boats
– the Casino, with live music, gaming tables, and hundreds of slots
– the Carrasqueira pier, a masterpiece of popular architecture, erected in the 1950s and 1960s, which is unique in Europe and is built on irregular wooden pilings
-the Roman ruins are hidden in the dunes since the 1st century and were the largest fish salting complex of the Roman period.
