Book a flight to Bulgaria and discover a rising star on Europe’s beach scene – its golden sands give the Costas a run for their money.
When you hear the words ‘beach break’ you don’t automatically think of Bulgaria. But if you fancy a sunshine escape and you’ve ticked off all the Costas, it’s time to start thinking about a flight to Bulgaria. The coastline is all about blonde sands and warm waters. Most visitors head for Sunny Beach, one of Bulgaria’s biggest resorts. Its neon-lit mix of hotels, bars and restaurants gives way to a pale sandy beach. Beachfront Bourgas follows suit. Beyond the sun loungers it packs a cultural punch, with galleries and museums like the Museum of History and City Art Gallery. And away from the resorts, scenery takes a walk on the wild side, with mountains, greenery and lakes stretching out in all directions.
