Budens is a lovely small village situated in Vila do Bispo, in the wonderful western side of the Algarve region, in the limits of the astonishing Sudoeste Alentejano and Costa Vicentina Natural Park.
Nowadays it's still a rural town which has undergone wider development in recent years due to the tourist development of the region. For years it was protected from mass tourism, but has a lot to offer. Such as the coastal towns of Burgau and Salema, located directly on the coast, but also the beach Boca do Rio at the mouth of the creek Ribeira de Budens. There you will also find the remains of a fortress built in the 17th century, Forte de São Luís de Almádena, to protect the houses of the local fishermen from pirates.
The famous golf course “Parque da Floresta” of Santo António Villas, Golf & Spa, with several precipitous fairways is a challenge for golfers of all levels and is also near Budens.
