About Sunny Beach
Everything in Sunny Beach is centred around tourism. It feels more like a fairground than a city. It is a fairly new resort that has built from scratch since the 1960s, so it has little to do with other parts of Bulgaria. You might as well be in Salou or any other party town. There is a Blue Flag beach with soft sand, lots of things to do and places to eat and drink, so Sunny Beach is great for sun-lovers of all ages. In and around Sunny Beach you will find many places to stay, from cosy and friendly guest houses to huge and luxurious hotels that offer 24-hour entertainment for holidaymakers.
The tourist season is not very long. Things start to live up in the end of May with the start of high-school prom season since Sunny Beach is the most popular party destination for school seniors. By the beginning of June the resort works "in full speed". The season winds down around in mid-September when most shops start to discount and the clubs, cafes and restaurants that are still opened work smaller hours.
Nowadays, the neighbouring towns of Sveti Vlas to the north and Nessebar to the south have merged, figuratively speaking, with Sunny Beach because of the resort's expansion along the coastline.
The general routine to do is to go to the beach in the morning and have lunch either on the beach or at a nearby restaurant. (There are the most delicious jacket potatoes in the world!) Then recuperate for a night out to remember as you go to Sunny Beach centre and the boulevard for dinner and a little entertainment from a dino-cafe to mini-golf to bungee trampling! Every night you can change scenery between Sunny Beach, Nessebar and Sveti Vlas (though the latter is recommended during the day).
Watersports. You can try Parascending, Banana boats or hire Jet skis along the beach. Or take the bus into Nessebar where there are a couple of Dive schools for Scuba. (Nemo diving is on the right before you cross the causeway, and Angel Diving is on the harbour beyond the bus stop.
Rent a Car. Have a runabout to the left and visit the beautiful marinas and villas of Saint-Vlas or go right and visit the local town-Nessebar. The old town is a cosy peninsula with beautiful old wooden house sand is also a UNESCO heritage site and has great fish restaurants. The new town is bustling with restaurants and hotels while the backstreets may hide some tasty local produce!
Hundreds of restaurants along the boulevard including a castle restaurant! Very nice food at some places with a relatively cheap price tag. There are: Bulgarian cuisine(including cheese, barbecue, seafood salads like гярб вечнълс), pizzas, Chinese cuisine, etc.
- Beer - Most major brands are available. Bulgarian brands like Shumensko(Шуменско), Kamenitza(Каменица), etc. are cheaper, not bad and widely available as draft.
Fresh (Along the Boulevard). Beach bar with DJ. Often crowded, but there's a nice party vibe. Service is rushed but correct. Large local beer 4.5 BGN.
Revolution (Flower street). Medium size dance club. Average age 20-30. Music: pop and dance. Entrance 5 BGN, bottle of beer (Tuborg) 6 BGN.
- The Boulevard - The boulevard along the shore has hundreds of stalls, shops and bars. Peddlers will try to lure you in, but they are not overly pushy.
