Luxury holidays in Comporta
When to go
July and August are typically sweltering; sun-worshippers should book for September, when the sea is mild and the sun isn’t too hot.

BoatsAtlantic Ferries run frequent ferry and catamaran services between Setúbal and the Tróia peninsula (www.atlanticferries.pt).
TrainsIt’s possible to get to Comporta by rail, but not easy: get the train from Lisbon to Setúbal, from which it’s a short ferry or catamaran ride to the Tróia peninsula. Then, you’ll need to get a taxi to Comporta itself.
AutomobilesAs Comporta is fairly isolated, you’ll be thankful for a set of wheels. Hire a car from one of the booths at Lisbon airport, then follow the A12 and A2 to Comporta.
