Bulgaria is famous for two things – its history and its nature. It is astonishing how many different landscapes you can see in its relatively small area. There are green lowlands, river valleys, many breathtaking mountains, numerous national parks, rock phenomena, caves, waterfalls, lakes, and mineral springs.
On top of all this, Bulgaria has a stunningly beautiful coastline of almost 400 km, covering its entire eastern border. About 30% of it consists of heavenly golden sandy beaches that can compete with the best beaches in the world. Bulgarian seaside resorts have something for everybody. See what type of traveler you are and choose your Bulgarian seaside resort!
The Party Animal – Sunny Beach
You are under 25 and you are most probably single, because why would you prefer to be with only one girl when there are so many single, pretty girls out there? Fun for you is the ultimate life goal. Well, my friend, we have the perfect resort for you! Sunny Beach has been very popular among young people for over a decade. With over 200 hotels, Sunny Beach is the biggest seaside resort in Bulgaria. More than 150 restaurants, about 50 discos, and a few casinos are waiting for you to have fun from dusk till dawn! Just know that with all the nightlife going on there, you might get back home with no tan at all…
Family with Kids – Albena
Albena is a great place for a family holiday. It is very popular among foreigners (only about 10% of the tourists staying in Albena are Bulgarians). This resort boasts about its beautiful beach (considered the best in Europe). 3.5 km of sandy beaches await you and your family for a lot of fun and sun-kissed memories. If you are a family that’s more into water action rather than sunbathing on the beach, the aqua park Aqua Mania is the place for you! With an area of about 30,000 square meters, it will astonish you with its attractions for the little and not-so-little ones.
Couples without Kids – Nesebar &Sozòpol
Nesebar and Sozòpol are two of the most beautiful Bulgarian resorts. They both have an “old town” that reveals the beauty of ancient Bulgarian buildings, some of which are restored and offer the great opportunity to stay in them or have an unforgettable lunch or dinner in their restaurants overlooking the sea. Aimlessly walking along the narrow streets after dinner will get out the romantic within you, and it will smoothly prepare you for the rich nightlife of these two resorts. Needless to say, you can enjoy the golden sandy beaches with their numerous attractions and water sports that will make you forget your busy life and fill you with positive energy and sweet memories.
