The beautiful and burgeoning resorts of the Black Sea coast are becoming a magnet for visitors looking for a holiday with almost guaranteed sun and fabulous beaches, yet a different kind of atmosphere to that of longer-standing favourite resorts.
Just a short journey of about 20 miles from the expanded Bourgas airport, you can be safely ensconced in your hotel within an hour of boarding your transfer coach.
Sunny Beach holidays epitomise the appeal of this up-and-coming region, the purpose-built resorts packing in all the attractions anyone could ask for in their ideal holiday destination, yet doing so in a setting whose natural beauty is still allowed to shine through.
The natural bay sweeps around in a graceful semi-circle which provides an ideal setting for water sports. Indeed, sporting types are really well catered for on Sunny Beach package holidays, with activities offered on dry land including beach volleyball – great if you were bitten by the Olympics bug – tennis and horse riding.
For the more sedate visitors on a Sunny Beach family holiday, this Bulgaria resort offers more than eight miles of gently-shelving beach on which you can laze away many an hour, before heading off to a nearby cafe or restaurant, where a multitude of cosmopolitan international tastes is catered for.
In the evenings though, the owners of these establishments like to showcase aspects of their traditional culture, and often put on live music and dance displays. For the truly Western-orientated visitor though, there are also plenty of bars and discos on hand.
If you opt for a Sunny Beach all-inclusive holiday, you'll also be less than three miles from the UNESCO world heritage sites which abound in neighbouring Nessebar, including the walls of its ancient fortress, and wooden houses lining narrow, cobbled streets.
Up-and-coming Bulgaria is finding its way onto the radar of increasing numbers of holidaymakers as the prices here can work out far cheaper than some of the more traditional summer holiday destinations. So if after reading about it, you're tempted to seek out a Sunny Beach holiday, use our simple search to check availability & prices for your preferred travel dates or call us and we'll do all the hard work for you!
