Cabanas / Velhas

Driving through Burgau down toward the beach but turning right before you get there will take you along a road which peters out to a track. This leads to a small unspoilt bay. Populated by a newish beach bar (replacing the original in 2004). This beach is also known as Fisherman's Beach or Quarry Beach, as there is an old quay there, where stone was shipped out, which is now used for fishing. The old cabins can still be seen on the hill. Extensive building is planned on the surrounding hills (despite being part of the nature reserve), so visit whilst you can.

Calbanas Velhas
Calbanas Velhas
A solitary beach bar on a beautiful quiet beach. A Smart log cabin style with terrace. Quite modern, light and 'airy'. Totally peaceful and a beautiful location. Excellent fish dishes, meals and snacks. Bit off the beaten track but highly recommended.
Where: Through Burgau, 1km turn left down the dirt track toward the bay.


A village on the main EN 125, with roads that lead south to Praia da Luz, and north to Barão de São João. A typical Portuguese village. The part facing the main road looks fairly modern and the roads are well made but go one row of houses back and the roads revert to old cobble style and are murderously narrow in parts. If you go into the village, rather than  just by-passing it on the main road, you will find a few restaurants and bars, a supermarket and newsagents.
