3 Beaches in Portugal are ranked among “The Safest Beaches in Europe” according to the European Best Destination travel website.


You have been staying at home for months and what you definitely need is space, fresh air, sun but also and above all a safe place for you and your family.

The safest beaches in Europe (Covid-19) were selected on the basis of various criteria such as a low number of people infected by the coronavirus (from 10 to 600 times fewer cases of Covid-19), the size of the beaches and the number of square meters available for each person on the beach.

These destinations have also been selected on the basis of the large offer of private villas, tourist apartments, small or medium-sized hotels with specific health charter and commitments to travelers, such as cleaning and room disinfection service after each stay, respect for social distancing.

She should not have left Comporta because the Alentejo is one of the regions least affected by Coronavirus in Europe (up to 600 times less cases of Coronavirus in the Alentejo than in any other region of Europe).
