Burgau is a seaside village approximately 90km west of Faro Airport/ 10 minutes drive west of Lagos and close to Praia da Luz and Salemain the western Algarve, Portugal.
The village is popular with tourists from the British Isles and remains a fishing village where the locals fix their nets by the beach. The old village has narrow steep, cobbled lanes with traditional white-washed cottages leading down to the sheltered cove. The pace of life here is calm and relaxing and Burgau is on the edge of the natural Park that stretches west to "the end of the world".
There are plenty of restaurants and bars where one can enjoy fresh fish and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere and if you would like to go shopping or out for the night Lagos is only a short bus trip away. Burgau has its own market on weekday mornings close to the bus stop where you can buy fresh fish and vegetables and drop your mail off with the post van so there really is no need to leave.
