The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, stretching for 236 miles (380km), is a popular destination for thousands of Bulgarians as well as foreign visitors every summer (June to August), with warm sea temperatures, a sunny climate, picture-perfect white sand beaches, modern resorts and a favourable exchange rate.

Although the Black Sea Coast has long been associated with large resort complexes catering mainly to European package tourists, there are also plenty of little hotels with private beaches. Seaside towns invite a more independent vacation with plenty of family-run guesthouses and a wealth of bars and restaurants that add local flavour and character. The coast is also one of the best spa regions in the country and resorts offer the added attraction of mineral baths, mud treatments and thermal springs.
Clean beaches, safe swimming and wide sandy beaches characterise the northern Black Sea Coast with the lively city of Varna a good base from which to explore the region. To the south lie picturesque bays and unusual rock formations, and the trawler port of Bourgas flanked by the old fishing villages of Sozopol and Nessebur.
