Still surprising visitors with fantastic summer getaways, the beaches, beauty and culture found on Bulgaria holidays continue to grow in reputation and popularity.
Home to some fantastic holiday resorts along the Black Sea Coast, Bulgaria offers everything from amazing history to a thriving nightlife, all at a great price. Being out of the Eurozone, you'll find you'll get more for your Bulgarian Lev out here which means more spending money can be spent on shopping, dining, drinks or activities.
The contrasting holidays in Bulgaria is best represented by the neighbouring resorts of Sunny Beach and Nessebar. While one features wild summer parties and long nights out, the other is home to an old town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Both of these resorts and the other holiday hotspots provide perfect beach settings with other areas of nature to explore across the Nessebar municipality.
A small holiday village with a beautiful beach placed at the bottom of a steep hillside, Elenite is a tourist town built especially for you.
While the accommodation is modern and comfortable, the surrounding land around Elenite is gloriously green on hills that drop right into the Black Sea.
The Blue Flag beach features some great bars and eateries where you can dine and drink into the evening. St Vlas is a short drive next door while Sunny Beach is just 20 minutes away too.
This exciting holiday destination features a modern tourist area which is filled with facilities and attractions for a range of visitors.
Nessebar's best feature is its UNESCO World Heritage Site which is found on a narrow peninsula. The old town is filled with classic architecture as well as 44 churches, some of which date back thousands of years.
Nessebar is a great place to shop for a locally made souvenir throughout the old town and the modern areas of the resort. Sample then purchase Bulgarian wines at one of Nessebar's wineries or search for handmade ornaments and jewellery throughout the craft stores and galleries.
Lying apart from the other Bulgaria resorts, Obzor Beach is placed at the centre of a spacious 8km spread of sand. The resort is surrounded by miles of natural space with the Stara Planina mountain range forming the backdrop to the town's landscape.
Culture is consumed within Obzor thanks to the fine selection of restaurants and shops distributed between the town's promenade and the central square. Right outside of Obzor there is an ancient Roman temple too.
The nightlife, while remaining mostly calm, also offers places to let loose in with live music performed in many bars. There is also a 24-hour bar by the beach which offers exciting entertainment.
Home to three separate beaches and a recently renovated marina, St Vlas is filled with superb coastal areas where you can utilise Bulgaria's summer sunshine.
Luxury yachts dock at the modern harbour area while the boardwalk features upmarket shopping and delicious dining opportunities.
There are miles of vast greenery surrounding St Vlas and there are guides who offer free tours around the region taking you to see fascinating nature and rare birds.
The best known Bulgarian resort has a big reputation for providing party holidays throughout the bars, beach and nightclubs. It delivers on its promise with wild parties, internationally known DJs and live music being just some of the entertainment found throughout the summer holiday season.
It's not just a vibrant nightspot, there are also plenty of exciting attractions to create fun days around Sunny Beach too. There is a huge waterpark and a nightly fun fair that create awesome experiences for all members of the family.
The streets are filled with shopping and dining options and the town is also home to the region's only open-air shopping centre at Royal Mall.
Holidays in Bulgaria are best experienced between May and September when the country becomes an ideal summer destination. Highs reach 28°C in July and August and rainfall is least likely to interrupt your tanning session on the beach at this time.
The restaurants, attractions and nightspots all remain open throughout the summer season in Bulgaria before most of them shut down again in the summer. Some of the towns even host summer festivals and cultural celebrations where tourists are always invited to join in with the fun.
Separated from the mainland via a long narrow walkway over the Black Sea, this ancient Bulgarian town hasn't changed in centuries. The cobbled streets feature something noteworthy at every turn and with 44 churches, and plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, this is a must-see for culture vultures.
Nessebar and Sunny Beach host the region's best waterparks. There are some fantastic spots to choose from with Aqua Paradise and Action Aquapark both featuring an array of hair-raising slides and plenty of thrills. The Pirates of the Caribbean park in Nessebar is a smaller space that is better suited to smaller children.
After dark Sunny Beach becomes a haven for the 18-30s holidays. The party season lasts from May until September here and the hundreds of bars and several nightclubs host some of the best nights out in Europe. With clubs to rival Ibiza, this party town attracts people from all over Europe.
Many companies offer sailing experiences atop the Black Sea. You can set off from many of Bulgaria's ports but St Vlas' large marina is one of the best starting points. You can have a go at hoisting the sails and steering the vessel before stopping for a spot of lunch and a refreshing dip.
