Budget-friendly beaches on Bulgaria's Black Coast

Bulgaria is a really beautiful country that's rich in history and folklore and blessed with a wealth of cultural and natural attractions. In the summer, locals and holidaymakers alike descend upon the golden sands of Bulgaria's Black Coast where traditional beach resorts boast stunning golden sands and gently sloping shores. Bulgaria is still a relatively undiscovered holiday destination, which means it's still much more wallet-friendly than most other European holiday destinations.

One of the things you'll realise as you come in to land in Bulgaria is how green the country is. The Balkan Mountains that flank the east coast provide a stunning backdrop for a beach holiday. The Bulgarian Black Sea coast boasts a huge 235 miles of coastline, eighty miles of which are fringed by gorgeous beaches. In the summer, temperatures reach a rather lovely 28°C and you can enjoy up to 300 hours of sunbathing time in a single month.

Places to Visit

Aqua Paradise

Located near Nessebar this huge water park is a fun filled day out for the whole family with 20 fantastic water rides and slides. It even has a castle with towers, bridges and a labyrinth.

Family Cruise

Ever fancied learning how to sail? Well why not try it on a catamaran as you sail through the Black Sea. You can have a go at hoisting the sails and steering the vessel before stopping for a spot of lunch and a refreshing dip.

Nessebar

This UNESCO site simply oozes charm and history. Overflowing with Greek and Roman ruins, visit medieval and byzantine churches and soak up the atmosphere dedicated by the Turks and Crusaders. After the history lesson it's time to chill out on one of the beautiful beaches that Nessebar has to offer.

There's something for everyone in Bulgaria

Resorts span from Varna in the north to Bourgas is the south, both of which have international airports. Bulgaria is a great destination for families owing to the fidget-friendly transfer time, clean Blue Flag beaches and shallow sea. As well as holidays themselves being really affordable, food is too. A family of four could eat out, including drinks, for less than the equivalent of £20. This makes Bulgaria an appealing destination for a Self Catering family holiday - the perfect option if you're travelling with fussy little mouths.

Bulgaria's Varna region is green and rocky with grand headlands at Cape Galata and Cape St. Athanasius. It's dotted with nature reserved and has several large beaches divided up by coves and forests that are just waiting to be explored. The resort of Golden Sands is just a ten minute journey from the city of Varna, so it's great if you want to combine a beach holiday with a city break. It's also adjacent to the Golden Sands National Park so if you're more landscape than cityscape, you're in luck.

Bourgas is a much flatter region that's decorated by fields of bright flowers and protected wetland areas. It's here you'll find Sunny Beach, Bulgaria's party capital, as well as many natural and historic wonders. Sunny Beach is just one mile from the ancient town of Nessebar, which is a great place to stay if you're looking for something laid back and romantic. The resort of Obzor is known for its Greek remains, whereas sports enthusiasts should look consider the exclusive resorts of Duni and Elenite for their wind surfing and mountain biking, respectively.

A honeypot of historical sites

Bulgaria shares a similar culture with its southernmost neighbour, Greece, so if you've hopped your way around the Greek islands and you're looking for somewhere new, Bulgaria is one to consider. Bulgarian cuisine is a sizzling mix of Greek, Turkish and Slavic influence, and you'll find menus full of tantalising dishes, such as kebabche and shishkebab. And did you know that yogurt was invented in Bulgaria? Make sure you try some traditional flavours – they're delicious.

Because of its location at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, Bulgaria has played an important role throughout history, particularly in terms of trade. This means the coast is a honeypot of historical sites, including the Euxinograd Palace in Varna and ancient Thracian settlements such as Ahtopol and Balchik. In particular, the World Heritage Site Nessebar or "Pearl of the Black Sea" is an ancient town that has been occupied by various civilisations spanning three millennia.
