Bulgaria has something for everyone. Bulgaria is a great destination for anyone who’s feeling the winter chill and dreaming of a perfect summer.
The Black Coast covers the entire length of the country’s 378km eastern border. This means that there are many options for those looking for the perfect beach holiday. We have compiled a list with the top areas to go, no matter if you are looking for a party spot or a peaceful retreat.
Sunny Beach, aptly named, is the spot to be if you want summer holidays that are full of cocktails, dance tracks and cool waves.
Sunny Beach is one of the most sought-after resorts in Bulgaria. It’s also one of Europe’s best party spots. You’ll find clubs that feature some of Europe’s most talented techno and house DJs along the main street. It is surrounded by beautiful natural dunes and one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.
Sunny Beach’s 8km of sand-and-sea coastline has more to offer than late-night partying. You can also enjoy boat parties and waterskiing during the day.
It’s also a great place to take a cultural vacation if you get bored of the party life. Nessebar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located just a few kilometres from the beach.
Nessebar, an ancient city, is full of historical sites. It is a major trading port and has witnessed many civilisations rise or fall. You can see the remains of long-gone cultures through the churches and walls preserved in the city.
Balchik is a quieter option for those looking for something more tranquil. Balchik, which is located just 31 kilometers north of Varna, is still unknown to mass tourists. It is the largest port on the eastern border.
It is so beautiful that Queen Marie of Romania, in the 1920s and 1930s fell in love with it and built a palace complex. It is home to many must-see spots, including the botanical gardens. The gardens are divided into impressive collections of unique greenery. There are over 2,000 species.
After a stroll around the beautiful palace and gardens, you can also enjoy a romantic evening at one of the many charming beach bars or restaurants that line the 2km stretch of Balchik beaches.
Are you tired of partying? Are romantic getaways too trite? Instead, go rugged and camp on a beach. Wild camping is not possible on all beaches, but there are plenty of designated campsites that you can use to set up camp.
Silistar Beach is a great spot for those looking for a more private location. You’ll find a spot that is ideal for those who want to get away from the crowds for their summer vacation. Silistar is located at the southern end of the coast. It also has several camping areas.
Irakli Beach, which is home to some of the most unique fauna and flora in the Black Sea, is the ideal destination for those who want to experience the wildlife of the Black Sea. Its rugged coastline is made even more impressive by its golden sands, wooded hillsides and stunning views.
You can also camp on the beach and enjoy Irakli au naturel. We forgot to mention that it also has a nudist beach.
If you are bringing children along on your sunbathing vacation, nudist beaches or late-night DJs may not be for you. Instead, why not visit one of the country’s many beachside resorts?
Golden Sands, one of Bulgaria’s most famous beach resorts, is located just a few kilometers north of Varna, the Black Sea Capital. Older children will enjoy the historical sites of Varna, where you can find the remains of the 2nd century-AD Thermae, where Romans once bathed.
The beaches at Golden Sands resort offer a variety of watersports activities and you can also book family-friendly boat parties.
A family vacation to Golden Sands would be incomplete without a trip to the waterpark. Waterparks, like the family-friendly beaches of Bulgaria, are a must-see for kids. They offer thrilling slides and attractions that can be enjoyed by all ages.
