Opportunities to Move to Portugal

If you have the opportunity to move to Portugal I wouldn’t think twice. Portugal is a great place to live, work and retire. Of course, when anyone is moving to a new destination, there will be pros and cons to every place. You need to consider what matters to you the most and what exactly you are looking to get out of this experience.

The biggest reason people move to Portugal is that the people are very friendly and are good at welcoming newcomers. Even though there might be a language barrier, don’t be alarmed if your neighbors bring over some homegrown vegetables or a bottle of wine to converse and get to know you. It’s all about community and creating a positive relationship with the people around you.

One con that might take some time getting used to is the pace of life. Depending on whether or not you are moving from North America or another fast-paced destination in the world; you might find it hard to get used to the slow pace of life. This just means that you can relax more and not rush through life. It’s not necessarily a con that you should relax more and be less pressured on a daily basis.

Depending on whether you are a retiree looking to move to Portugal and not work or you are a working individual who wants to move here and find a job, the process and opportunities differ slightly. The job market is Portugal is rather slow at the moment, depending on which field of work you want to enter in. If you are working in the IT sector, tourism, health, agricultural, or call center sector- Portugal wants you more than other professions. If you are an entrepreneur looking to start your own business in Portugal and contribute to their economy, this is a really good sign.  Employees who reside and work in Portugal work 40-hour work weeks, which is the same almost all around the world.

The benefit to living and working in Portugal is the stress-free lifestyle. It is not hard to move to Portugal if you are coming from a country in the EU. You do not need a work permit to work here; you just need to figure out whether you want to stay here for longer than six months. If you do, you will need to file for your residency card. If you are a non-EU resident, you will need to apply for a work visa. You will need to determine whether you are applying for a short-term visa (3-months) or an extended visa. An easy way to get your foot in the door is by working for a multinational company that can help you deal with the paperwork.

Don’t hesitate to contact me to learn about the wonderful opportunities for moving to Portugal. I will provide you with as much information as you need in order to make your move successful and find you the right accommodation in the right location of your choice.

Beaches Comporta Melides

Beaches Comporta Melides

The beaches along the coast from Comporta to Melides are known as some of the most beautiful places in Portugal. This area is known for its natural landscapes, conventional villages, and the utmost peacefulness.

The main attractions, of course, are the beaches that stretch the coastline of over 60km in length.

The beaches in Comporta and Melides are covered with fine white sand and a beautiful blue that stretches as far as the eye can see. The dunes are covered in vegetation, which is any nature loves paradise.

This area of Portugal is great for fishing or simply sitting on the beach and watching for dolphins to pass by. You do not want to miss the sunset, so pack a lunch and plan to stay. Let’s take a look at the beautiful beaches you do not want to miss from Comporta to Melides.

Beaches in Comporta:

  • Comporta Beach – Praia da Comporta

If you are looking for a trendy beach around Lisbon, this is the place to be seen. Comporta Beach is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole Country.

There are a couple of different restaurants to choose from as well as a bar that offers drinks and cocktails during sunset. During the summer months, you can rent a mattress to relax on. If you plan on driving to the beach there is a car park, which will cost five euros.

  • Pego Beach – Praia do Pego

You might recognize Pego Beach because of its feature in the Condé Nast Traveller magazine.

Pego Beach is known for its lovely beach but more so for the delicious restaurant ‘the Sal.’ This restaurant was voted as one of the ten best places in the world.

Many people also consider Pego Beach to be one of the top beaches in Europe. Depending on the weather you might witness a few kite-boarders on the water. This beach is great for swimming and body boarding.

  • Tróia Galé Beach & Tróia Beach – Praia Tróia Galé & Praia Tróia

Tróia Galé Beach is one of the best beaches to take your children too. If you don’t want to worry about big waves and your children enjoy swimming, I highly recommend and encourage you to enjoy this beach.

There are many places where you can enjoy food, ice cream, and drinks by the sea. You can also rent sunbeds and umbrellas during the summer months. This beach is supervised during the summer for everyone’s safety.

More Beaches to Consider:

Beaches in Melides:

  • Melides Beach – Praia da Melides

Melides Beach is rather unique because it separates the lagoon and the sea. Whether you want to relax or play some beach volleyball, this is a beach you do not want to think twice about visiting.

Melides Beach is great for surfing and taking in all the views. Make sure you pay a visit in Melides to enjoy all the beautiful white houses in the village.

  • Vigia Beach – Praia da Vigia

Vigia Beach is opposite the lagoon, which is a great place to visit if you are looking for clear water.

Paragliders are extremely fond of this beach due to the high escarpment for gliding. Make sure you pay a visit to Vigia Beach in order to take in all the beautiful views of Alentejo.

Gastronomy Comporta & Melides

Gastronomy Comporta & Melides

Let’s dive deeper into the Gastronomy in Comporta & Melides and decipher which restaurants are worth checking out. You might think since you are visiting or moving to Comporta or Melides, you will have to eat traditional Portuguese food. I highly recommend trying a few local dishes, such as:

  • Portuguese Cod Fish
  • Caldo Verde
  • Portuguese Sardines
  • Chicken Piri-Piri
  • Portuguese Cured Ham (Porco Preto)
  • Bifanas
  • Pastel de Nata (dessert)

These dishes will allow your taste buds to experience what local Portuguese families eat quite regularly. It’s always fun and exciting to dive into the culture that you are visiting or moving to eat and drink the local dishes that the authentic Portuguese families are serving. It might look a little different than the way you prepare your food at home but be a little adventurous.

Portuguese codfish can be prepared over 365 different ways, which is a different way for every day of the year if you fancy it that much. Many people eat it salted and if you are looking for it at the supermarket it might be called Bacalhau.

Caldo Verde is one of the most popular dishes in Portugal and comes from the north. It is a soup that is mainly eaten in the winter months; however, you can enjoy it year-round. This soup includes a dark green cabbage that cannot be found easily outside of Portugal. Therefore, you will notice that the color of the soup is a dark green. You will enjoy flavors of potato, sausage, and olive oil amongst the green cabbage. This is a must-try!

Portuguese sardines are a summer favorite for the majority of the Portuguese people here in Portugal. It is a very popular dish at many of the festivals across Portugal.

You have probably heard of chicken piri-piri, which came from Portuguese voyagers who traveled through Africa and discovered a spicy chili pepper, which was known as the Piri-Piri pepper. Now you can find chicken piri-piri throughout all of Portugal and it is mainly served with fries or chips.

Porco Preto is a cured ham that is a favorite here in Portugal. You will find Porco Preto in tapas and other authentic dishes throughout the different areas of Portugal.

Bifanas is a glorified sandwich, which is the national sandwich of Portugal. These sandwiches are pork-based and are served on crispy bread. The pork is marinated in white wine, garlic, and paprika to produce the delicious taste.

You have to try the local dessert, I don’t care what diet you are following. Pastel de Nata is made differently depending on the pastry soup that you go to. However, it is an egg tart that is creamy, sweet and can be a little tart. You will likely be addicted after the first bite. Many Portuguese people enjoy this tart with a cup of strong Portuguese coffee to start their day. All of these lovely food options can be found in Comporta & Melides and I highly recommend enjoying each one of them at some point.

Restaurants in Comporta to try:

  • Cavalariça Comporta
  • Museu do Arroz
  • São João
  • Piadinas Zanotta
  • Comporta Café

Restaurants in Melides to try:

  • Tia Rosa
  • O Fadista
  • Flor do Sal

Now go out and indulge in some great Portuguese favorites based on the opinions of people who are born here and opinions from other travelers.
