Burgau is a relatively small village in the Western Algarve, on the edge of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park brimming with local charm. So much so that many of its visitors return time and time again.
It is best to explore this little gem on foot to fully appreciate the natural beauty and traditional style.
The labyrinths of narrow streets lead down to the beach, with white washed houses leaning crookedly against each other.
The fine sandy beach is backed by rocky outcrops and creates an atmosphere of great tranquility.
Burgau is also known as the smugglers village and it is easy to imagine lots of clandestine activity going on in the hidden alleys and lanes, in times gone by.
Burgau is popular all year round and with all types of visitors. Families love the peace and friendly welcome, walkers love to explore the cliff top paths and trails leading off to neighbouring Salema, gourmets love the fresh fish and laid back beach bars.
Burgau, with its slow pace of life, is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy your surroundings.
