Saint Isidore The Farmer Parish Church
  • In 1876, the Dominicans created the Parish Church of St. Isidore, the patron saint of farmers. The patron's feast is annually celebrated on May 15. It is also the town fiesta.
  • Cabongaoan Beach; Perhaps the most well-known beach in Burgos, Cabongaoan Beach is pleasantly sandy, with little to no rocks prickling visitors’ feet as they pad about. The beach is also known to have tidal pools both shallow and deep, and a viewpoint where visitors can enjoy the scenery of the coast. The so-called "Depth Pool" is a tidal pool on the rocky side of the beach gets filled with water when the waves crash against it. The sunsets in Burgos are especially and notably beautiful.
  • Pao Nambalan Beach: Unlike most beaches where there are stretches and stretches of sand, Nambalan Beach in Barangay Ilio-ilio also has grassy areas shaded by coconut trees where anyone could lay down blankets and enjoy the breeze and scenery before heading out to get a suntan. Visitors are also allowed to set up camp for free so that they could enjoy the stars come nighttime.
  • Paratec Beach: A quiet and tranquil beach in Barangay Ilio-ilio to most, a site for challenging adventures to others, with rock formations looming and inviting visitors to trek upon them.  Though the trek can be dangerous with the waves violently crashing against the rocks and the water passages narrowing, the beach is still welcoming.
  • Sangbay Falls: Located in Barangay San Vicente. It can be challenging for some to get there because of the 30-minute walk from the main road but the rewards at the other end are well worth the effort.
  • Rolling Hills: Other natural attractions in Burgos include the rolling hills in southbound barangays of Sapa Pequeña, Sapa Grande, Concordia, Pogoruac, and Ilio-Ilio where herds of cattle in ranches roam freely.
  • Danao Lake: in Barangay Cacayasen.
  • Batog Beach: in Barangay Ilio-ilio
  • The Bayog Festival is held in May.
