A great value all-rounder
Taking centre stage here is Sunny Beach – a purpose-built playground that specialises in good times and great value. It’s all golden beaches, waterparks and kicking back by day, but it’s a different story at night when the streets come alive with activity. Take your pick from family-flavoured spots hosting quiz and karaoke nights, to booze cruises and party-hard clubs where you can dance all night.
Slow the pace
You don’t have to go far for something a little more swanky. In St Vlas, mountain scenery meets a modern marina, casinos and cocktail bars for that A-list look. Nearby Obzor’s sleepy sands are really something, while its charming town square and pretty palm-filled park make for the best sunny afternoon strolls.
UNESCO-protected Nessebar is the one to beat for a bit of sightseeing. Discover the real deal as you navigate its narrow streets, poke around Byzantine churches, and tuck into some beautiful Balkan seafood dishes by the handsome harbour. You could also saddle up for a scenic ride through the stunning Sea Garden park in Bourgas, or pop to Pomorie to wallow in the healing power of mud.
