Praia do Burgau Beach: Every Beach Lover Dream Come True!
Praia do Burgau beach is one of the prettiest beaches in Algarve, Portugal with toasted golden sands and calm, serene waters. Despite its small size, the beach is very popular during the summer with the tourists and the locals alike. The Burgau beach is protected from strong winds by rocky cliffs that surge out of the ocean on either side, creating a natural barrier.
However, since high tides are quite common on the Praia do Burgau beach, it’s best to check the tidal schedule for the day to avoid being soaked, when the intention is to sunbathe and get tanned!
In Burgau beach you can just relax around or have a quick chat with the warm locals, which will reward you with friendly smiles.
