1. Coral beach
One of the most unspoiled beaches on the Bulgarian seaside is definitely Coral Beach. If you plan on going there you should keep in mind several important things.
First of all, there are no facilities like umbrellas and sunbeds at all so you may as well consider bringing your own. It is a completely virgin nature. As you have probably already guessed there is no lifeguard on duty nearby. And any little restaurants or shops are really hard, if not impossible, to come by. So maybe bring some snacks and a few bottles of water with you, just in case.
As you will probably figure out by the end of this article, the only way to reach most of those secluded pristine beaches is by car, and that is not the hardest part of the way there. Since the roads that lead to them are usually bumpy, not maintained and are considered an off-road experience.
Coral makes no exception. The road that leads to the beach is really rough but believe me, the crystal clear water and the incredibly pure and are worth the adventure.
2. Irakli beach

There is a good chance, however, if you take a walk away from the resort to reach the secluded and really picturesque parts of the beach.
The real beauty of this place comes from the clash between forest and water right at the mouth of the Kamchia river, which makes its way down across to the sea.
