Description

From Troia to Comporta
You can reach Troia via Alcácer do Sal or by ferry from Setúbal, crossing the River Sado estuary. On arrival, the Troia peninsula offers much to be explored. You can play golf, have surfing lessons, walk along the beach or watch the dolphins. You can also wander about to discover the region’s cultural heritage, such as the Carrasqueira village on stilts and the Troia Roman Ruins which actually reveal how the area was already rich in natural resources two thousand years ago.

Signs of human habitation in Troia date back many centuries. The Roman Ruins are amongst the most important archaeological remains, dating from the 1st Century. They were the biggest complex for the production of conserves and fish sauce in the Western Roman Empire, and this is also evidence of the importance of fishing in the local economy since long ago.

After Troia, Comporta is a much appreciated spot for a family beach outing and has some good restaurants. This is a paddy field area, so rice-based dishes are an unmissable specialty.

Located on the southern tip of the Tróia Peninsula, the huge sandy extent of Comporta Beach is a regular summer favourite, given good means of access and plenty of parking space.

Forming part of the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, Comporta Beach has been well preserved with the original dune vegetation surviving along with the adjoining pine forest.

    Come with, in this full -day tour and discover the magnificent historic.

    About an hour from Lisbon, in Setúbal, you simply take the ferry across the river Sado to get to the resort of Troia. On this bank, you’ll find one of the most extensive beaches in Portugal, 18km long, which you can claim for yourself. The mild temperatures of its microclimate allows you to spend a few days full of activities, whether it’s summer or winter.

    On the golden sands that extend to the horizon, with the clear waters of the sea on one side and the pine forest on the other, you can have fun with the whole family and, weather permitting, even enjoy some water sports. The area is perfect for windsurfing and sailing, as you can tell by the busy Troia Marina.

    It’s very common to see dolphins at this point where the river Sado meets the sea, and taking a boat ride with time to observe them is always a good idea. Or go bird watching in the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park or the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, where there’s no lack of interesting species. Not far away is Carrasqueira, a very traditional fishing port built on stilts.
