Bulgarian Black Sea info

It is a favorite tourist destination in all of those countries. But today our scope is focused on the Bulgarian Sea Coast and what to expect when you book your holiday in a rental villa with a swimming pool in Bryastovets, Sunny Beach or in a holiday apartment in Burgas. In just a few words – the Bulgarian coast has an abundance of things to offer: ranging from inexpensive accommodation, delicious cuisine, fresh immaculate seafood, pristine virgin beaches, golden sand, historical sites.

 

The first thing that sparks in your mind when you hear a Bulgarian seaside resort is Sunny Beach. But do not be misled by the name of the particular resort – this easily implies the entire Bulgarian coast. The outstanding golden beaches occupy about 130km of the 380 km long coastline. Tourists simply love the fine, warm, sparkling golden sand that covers most of the beaches in the country. Walking bare-feet down the sea, the sand gently sliding underneath you, there is no greater pleasure than that, not only for tourists but for locals as well. Yes! You can walk bare-feet on the Bulgarian beaches. Unlike many of the resorts in the west, Bulgarian beaches offer that opportunity. Beaches are so clear and so safe that there is no need for a pair of protective shoes, that are so often needed in other places. Children enjoy picking some shells along the beach. They are just gentle and beautiful as the sand.

 

 

The sand is not the only feature of nature that attracts tourists to Bulgaria each year. The crystal-clear, pristine waters on the Black Sea really make up for a good swimming experience. It is the perfect place to find some relief from the hot Bulgarian weather. Normally the temperature of the water in the summer circulates around 30 degrees. There is that interesting fact that the water tends to stay warm throughout the night and it is often warmer than the fresh, clean, night air. This means that the most adventurous of you can go for a late night’s swim. It already sounds too good to be true. But believe me, there is more.

One of the best features of the Bulgarian coast is that it is perfectly safe, unlike many of the popular holiday destinations worldwide. First of all, there are no poisonous or dangerous species that inhabit the Black Sea. So you can go for a swim or a dive without any hesitations or fear of the unknown. On the other hand, the Bulgarian beaches are gently sloping down the sea, some of the beaches are really shallow and some get deep slowly and gradually. So it is the perfect place for children since there are no dangerous depressions and drops that can mislead them into going deeper into the sea.

Down the Bulgarian coastline, you can stumble upon some of the purest, untouched, virgin beaches in the world. The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast has become a favorite tourist destination due to the extensive amount of hours of sunshine (240h in May and September and well over 300h in June and August) that supply the tourists with the best sunbathing and beach experience. We have already prepared an entire article that tells you more about those locations, how to get to them and what you can do there. You can check it out here. But just so you get the idea – imagine an empty beach, surrounded by woods on one side and high picturesque cliffs on the other. That’s the typical secluded Bulgarian beach. No one in sight, just the sea and the peace and serenity you may long.
