Hurry to experience this unspoiled, seven-mile slice of the Atlantic shore an hour south of Lisbon. Its protected white sand and brisk waves, whitewashed village and thatched-roof shacks have seen the likes of designer Christian Louboutin, actress Kristin Scott Thomas, and super-decorator Jacques Grange. It won’t stay this tranquil forever: an Amanresort will soon be joining the golf, wine, and hotel complex developed by the local agribusiness giant Herdade da Comporta. herdadedacomporta.pt
