Walking from Lagos to Burgau – Portugal

A 16km’s (10mi) long trail that connects Lagos with Burgau always walking along the coast, without much gain in altitude is an excellent and relaxed walk.

The Algarve’s coast, at the southern area of Portugal, is composed by a very compact yellow sand.

This sand with such warm color matches perfectly with the remaining colors. Is like a painting where the artist want’s to transport us to a summer setting but will the perfection that only Nature can achieve.

Besides the beautiful sea landscape there other points of interest in this walk:

  • Farol da Ponta da Piedade (Ponta da Piedade’s lighthouse)
  • Caves by the sea level near the lighthouse
  • Romans ruins at Luz Beach;
  • Overview of the sea and cliffs.

Something else totally different but worth to notice: you will not find many Portuguese people walking around. Why? Well, walking is not the “thing” around here.

Have a nice walk.
