Sunny Beach Holidays
Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach is a purpose built seaside resort on the Black Sea. It is Bulgaria’s largest and most popular beach destination and is awash with golden sandy beaches and glittering opaque waters. Sunny Beach Holidays have it all.
It’s a beach-dwellers paradise, a great place to top up your tan through the day and party all night. For those of you wanting a little more than that - there's a plethora of sports to take part in, as well as plenty to see and do in the area. Including the small towns and lost beaches that line the coastline, and just 35 KM away, is the impressive coastal city of Burgas.
When it comes to planning your trip, remember that Sunny Beach is at its heart a package holiday resort. Most of what’s available is aimed at the package tourist - so either pre-book or stay in Nessebar which is close by instead.
Sunny Beach’s climate is Mediterranean, with temperatures during the peak months (July and August) reaching well into the 30’s. This makes it a popular spot with tourists the world over - but you’ll find that the majority of tourists are Russian, German and English. If you’re flying to Sunny Beach, then then you’ll no doubt land either in Burgas airport or Varna Airport. Burgas is the closest at 25 KM, while Varna Airport is around 100 KM away so we recommend flying in to Burgas - especially if you plan on making your own way to the resort.

As well as laying back on the golden sands and taking in the sun and the scenery. There are plenty of beach activities to take part in - from volleyball and parasailing to snorkelling and boating.
Not too far away from the sea there are a range of great activities for kids as well, including carousels, pony rides, swimming pools and an 18 hole mini golf course.
For something a little different, head to Horrorwood, which is a haunted house style attraction, close to the Hotel Pirin. For those looking for something a little more adult in nature, you’ll find a range of nightclubs and bars scattered around the shoreline. The nightclubs are plentiful and many go on all through the night. It’s a perfect option for those looking for long nights and lazy days. The foodies amongst you are well catered for, with somewhere in the region of 150 restaurants in the Sunny Beach area - and many many more in the near by cities of Varna and Burgas. The restaurants are diverse, with an eclectic collection that takes in everything. The fast food of McDonald’s to luxurious terrace restaurants and everything in-between.
If you’re planning on visiting the nearby Burgas then you’ll find plenty of things to do. There is of course the Burgas Beach (though Varna’s urban beach offering is a little better). If you’re visiting Burgas then you really should see some of the attractions.
There is a Maritime Park, with colourful manicured flower beds, abstract sculptures and a series of terraces with views out over the beach. After that, the China Tea House will provide you a welcome tea-break that is also home to many Oil paintings by local artists.
If you have time to take a look at Varna, then don’t miss the impressive Euxinograd. A former Bulgarian Royal summer palace built in the 19th century, and the medieval Aladzha Monastery. A Christian cave complex just a little way out of Varna and close by to Golden Sands resort.
