Mention the dream European beach vacation, and what's the first thing that springs to mind? Greece? Spain? Maybe the South of France? Bulgaria? (Yes, Bulgaria.)
It may surprise people to learn that Bulgaria's Sunny Beach is one of Europe's best kept secrets. Located in a picturesque gulf along the Black Sea coast just 21 miles north of Burgas, Sunny Beach is Bulgaria's largest and most popular beach resort – thanks to fine golden sands, clear water, rolling dunes and a gently graduated sea bottom.
The beach has also been named a Blue Flag-winning beach for its cleanliness.
And what sits on Sunny Beach, besides you? Iberostar Sunny Beach Resort.
When not taking in the sunshine, visitors to the area have a host of activities to keep them busy. Sunny Beach's nightlife is renowned, thanks to the more than 200 live music venues, restaurants, discos, clubs and casinos that attract popular DJs and thousands of people looking to celebrate summer. Sunny Beach is also an ideal family destination with a host of kids clubs, discos and fairground activities, such as carousels, pony rides, go-carts and Horrorwood, a beachside haunted house.
