Bulgaria's 200-mi/320-km coast is lined with resorts, many of which offer accommodations, restaurants and watersports facilities at relatively low prices. Many tourists have traditionally come from the formerly Communist states of eastern Europe, earning the area the nickname the "Red Riviera." Today, however, the area attracts visitors from all over and for peak season (July and August), you should book your hotel room well in advance of your stay.
Resorts, such as those located at Sunny Beach (Slanchev Bryag) and at Golden Sands (Zlatni Pyasatsi), are extremely popular. As a result, they have grown considerably to feature spas and health-oriented centers, gourmet dining, casino and nightlife entertainment, outdoor sports such as windsurfing, scuba diving and canoeing, and sightseeing excursions. Activities for those who are single, or who are traveling with children are also available.
If you are a fan of beach and water-oriented summer vacations, or resort-type stays, definitely plan a visit to one of these locations. Sunny Beach is 26 mi/42 km north of Bourgas; Golden Sands is 11 mi/18 km north of Varna.
