Burgau, even though it is just a small village, has so many excellent restaurants where you can savour the freshly caught fish and local produce. You can enjoy traditional food as well as some other ethnic foods. Some restaurants provide a take away service and there are a couple of friendly bars. There are a few small supermarkets and markets as well as gift shops and an ATM and there is a regular bus service to Luz and Lagos, the regional capital, which has historic buildings, forts and intact old city walls within which there are narrow, winding paved streets lined with shops, restaurants and bars, and there is a long palm-fringed waterfront with a foot bridge leading to the modern marina and to Meia Praia beach.
This is the perfect place to leave your cares behind and just relax and enjoy the sun and the friendly atmosphere!

The Algarve region
Burgau is at the edge of the extensive South West Natural Park, a protected area of incredible natural beauty and variety. A walk along the coastal path reveals cliffs, small coves, rocky outcrops, grottoes and picture postcard views of the coastline. Drive to small fishing villages and remote beaches near Sagres and Cape St. Vincent, formerly known as world's end and continue up the west coast to see endless spectacular cliffs shaped by Atlantic waves. Inland the Monchique mountains are clothed with pine forests and oak, eucalyptus and fragrant almond trees.
The climate is near perfect with sunny, hot summers cooled by gentle sea breezes and bright, mild winters warmed by air currents from North Africa.
This region has attracted visitors for centuries and many races have recognised its unique position, natural harbours, climate and fertile soil and have left their mark on the architecture, crops and foods such as orange and olive groves. The people today are naturally friendly, polite and very welcoming to visitors.
This is the quieter, more scenic part of the Algarve where you can escape the cares and stresses of life and indulge in the sunshine, wonderful local foods, genuine friendliness of the people and the slower pace of life.
Burgau has a special magic that makes people return there again and again! The small fishing village is full of character, very friendly people, brilliant weather, great food, an amazing beach, local shops and restaurants.
Look for bargains at the small daily morning market on your way down to the Beach which is at the bottom of a narrow cobbled street lined with small shops and cafes. The renowned Burgau Beach Bar on the beach has great food and is perfect to quench you thirst, gaze out to sea or have a chat in the shade.
The larger village of Luz is 4 Km, a short drive or a walk along the coastal path. Luz has more shops, restaurants & bars and bank, post office and chemist, dental clinics and a 24 hour doctor service, LuzDoc.
Just 15 minutes drive eastwards is the lovely palm fringed market town of Lagos which has lots of shops and restaurants lining its historic winding streets. The daily fish market is amazing and the weekly country produce market in Lagos is not be be missed for the colour and variety of local produce and people.
Boat trips are available from Luz and Lagos for fishing, visiting coastal caves and grottoes and dolphin watching. You can swim with tame dolphins at Zoomarine, or have a day's fun at the water parks that are within easy reach.
In summer there is a regular local bus service to Lagos, Luz and nearby beaches and there is a wide variety of sports available in the area including all watersports, swimming lessons, tennis, squash, soccer, horse riding and quad biking.
The mild winters and year round sunshine make it perfect for golfers. There are more than 20 prime golf courses within an hour's drive and 2 renowned courses, Parque da Floresta and Boavista Golf are just 15 minutes away. Visitors are welcome and lessons are available on all courses, most of which require a handicap certificate and normal course etiquette.
