Combining miles of sandy beach with perpetually good weather and ridiculously cheap alcohol, Sunny Beach on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast is quickly overtaking the likes of Magaluf as the go-to holiday hotspot for young clubbers.
Although designed to be a family resort, in recent years, an invasion of swanky bars, night clubs and casinos has transformed Sunny Beach from a sleepy seaside town to a lively holiday hotspot. Luckily, the majority of the chaos is confined to the neon-lit waterfront strip, so if a quieter getaway is more up your street, you can still enjoy Sunny Beach.
The golden sands of Cacao Beach, stretching for 8km along the coast is enough to attract any sun worshipper to Sunny Beach. With added amenities like entertainment for the children, pony rides, mini-golf and a choice of over 150 spectacular restaurants, there is something to please everybody.
Purpose built as a tourist resort, Sunny Beach factors in everything that a holidaymaker could possibly want from a holiday, but lies only a stone’s throw away from the traditional old town of Nessebar.
In Nessebar, you can experience a taste of authentic Bulgaria. Ancient Byzantine churches and historic Roman forts adorn the winding streets of this picturesque peninsula town, alive with culture and Bulgarian charm.
