Burgau
Burgau located in the Algarve region, Vila do Bispo municipality was a fishing village, now living entirely in tourism. Its most important attraction is the small beach of Praia do Burgau, surrounded by hills that protect this beach from the frequent wind characteristic of the Barlavento. There is a hotel in this town and a large number of small apartments that can be rented during the summer.
Tourism
The beach Burgau Beach is the most famous attraction because of its size and climate in the region. Around the area, people can walk in the fields belonging to the protected area and appreciate the natural landscape of Barlavento Algarvio. There is also a large presence of people during the night, especially in the summer (June to September) due to its bars and cafes creating big movement on the most important streets.
Gastronomy
Fresh fish and shellfish are highly featured in the menus and are presented in many ways - roasted sardines, boiled shrimps, conch shells and stews, cooked mussels with rice, stuffed squid, Moreia Frita (fried eel) and fish stews with a bit of everything!
Lamb and pork are always popular during the hunting season (October to December), hare, wild boar and partridge on the menu.

Desserts include sweet rice, fig cakes and sweet potato cakes.

You can finish with a glass of medronho (a spiritual drink distilled from the medronho).
Weather
The climate of Portugal is mild, with few rains and many sunny days, which is why the Burgau is as popular for outdoor sports enthusiasts as for tourists seeking long, sunny days. The Atlantic Ocean is colder than the Mediterranean Sea, but is very refreshing on a hot day.

The Burgau receives most of the rains during the winter months and rarely between June and September. With its temperate climate, people are known to spend Christmas Day in the sun. Summers are hot and sunny, but are often refreshed by a refreshing breeze.

July and August are the hottest months of the year. The autumn and winter months are mild. January is the coldest month of the year.
