Resort Info

Sunny Beach

The liveliest resort on the Black Sea

Sunny Beach is the newest and most popular holiday resort in Bulgaria. Renowned for its popular nightclubs and bars as well as its lovely hot summers and beautiful coastal location, it really lives up to its name! It is host to a variety of attractions for groups and families alike, whilst being a cheaper alternative to other European destinations. Sunny Beach is a truly up-and-coming resort.

What’s there

With a myriad of restaurants, bars and nightclubs scattered throughout the centre, on Flower Street and along the coast, there’s plenty of choice for all – whether you’re looking for a lunchtime snack or an evening meal overlooking the waves, or if you’re wanting to taste a variety of cocktails and dance the night away.

What Lies Beyond

If you’re looking for a day out, look no further than the ancient fishing village of Nessebar. This picturesque UNESCO World Heritage site is only a short bus ride away from Sunny Beach centre, with buses departing from the top of Flower Street roughly every 15 minutes.

 

Things to do in Sunny Beach

 

8 km of sandy beaches

With a large stretch of golden sand along the coastline, Sunny Beach’s Blue Flag awarded beach is ideal for sunbathers and beach-goers alike. Plenty of sunbeds lie at your disposal (for a small fee) so you can comfortably top up your tan whilst listening to the gentle waves lap the shore. And if you need more relaxation, why not try a massage from one of dedicated masseurs, who offer a variety of rubdowns to relieve even the greatest tensions.

Top Tip:

Remember to buy insurance that includes watersports, as the outstanding views whilst parasailing or jet-skiing make them firm favourite activities.

Traditional Cheverme Grill

Along the back streets of Sunny Beach there are traditional-style restaurants with large spit-roasts outside, often called Cheverme. It may seem strange, but it is part of the rustic charm that makes the slow roasted pork and chicken the most popular meats on offer. Don’t worry if you are vegetarian, as dishes such as Shakshuka (eggs in a spicy tomato sauce) and Gyuvetch (vegetable stew) come highly recommended.

Top Tip:

A large stein of beer can cost as little as half the price of a pint at home, so keep an eye out for the special offers board outside bars and restaurants to get your money’s worth.

Party the night away

Sunny Beach is becoming well known for its lively nightlife and is now a serious rival to the Spanish clubbing resorts in Majorca and Ibiza. The most popular clubs, including Revolution, Disco Orange and Party Club Iceberg, regularly feature famous guest DJs and host world-famous Ministry of Sound and Hedkandi nights.

Top Tip:

Be sure to visit the reps along Flower Street if you want a great deal – offers include nightclub entry plus a drink and a ticket for another event!

Souvenirs for all

The promenade along the beach front is ideal for souvenirs of Sunny Beach. With gifts ranging from the typical magnets to leather goods for the family, to more personal souvenirs, such as hair braiding and tattooing, the promenade features plenty of opportunity to purchase keepsakes for all.

Top Tip:

If you’re looking for souvenirs for a large group (or self-catering), the large supermarket M.M. by Action Waterpark offers bargain prices for big bags of souvenir sweets and the best value for day-to-day food and drink.

Experience millennia of Bulgarian history

The wooden windmill welcoming you onto the Old Nessebar peninsula gives a hint to the ancient treasure that lies ahead. An important trade hub for numerous civilizations over its 3000 year history, Old Nessebar is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and protected from modernisation. There are a number of small medieval churches to explore, along with a labyrinth of bazaar-like shops - fascinating pieces of architecture for culture vultures and history buffs alike. 

Top Tip:

Remember to take enough money for the churches and the Archaeological Museum, as they require a small donation to enter.

 

We Recommend

 

Khan’s Tent

For an entertaining night out, a trip to Khan’s Tent is a must. Situated high on the hillside, with wonderful panoramic views of Sunny Beach bay, you will be served a delicious four course Bulgarian meal, with wine, beer or soft drinks. During your meal, you will be serenaded by the house band and afterwards, a highly talented variety show will commence with wondrous acts ranging from jugglers to acrobats to dancers.

Beach Club Playa

Have a cocktail whilst feeling the warm sand beneath your toes and relaxing in a hammock supported by tall leafy palm trees. The Latino dance beats played will certainly make you feel as though you’re on a tropical island. If paradise could be a beach bar in Sunny Beach, this would be it!

Action Aqua Park

The best way to cool down (and still have fun) is at the Action Aqua Park. Featuring white-knuckle kamikaze slides, a world-first uphill water coaster and a fun adventure pool for the kids, not to mention the wave and musical pools amongst others, it’s sure to appeal to all ages. Free shuttle transfers to the park operate regularly from Flower Street.

Brilliant hotel, fab holiday

We are just back from a week at the Meridan and we loved it, we had 4 year old and 1 year old daughters with us and there was plenty to keep them amused. Everyone in the hotel were so friendly (except the reception staff, other reviewers are right about them) but every other member of staff were so helpful and so friendly. The food in the restaurant was lovely and different every night I was expecting same every night but was pleasantly surprised I am fussy with meat and chicken but it was beautiful. There is a kids disco 8:30-9 it would be better if it was longer but this is sunny beach and probably need to cater more for the party goers than young families.

The best thing about my stay was...

Hotel was close to beach, room was always cleaned, hotel clean & staff friendly

Everything was perfect. We didn't have any complains about service or food. Every day the dinner was something different, although for breakfast was pretty much the same things but it was made very delicious.

Back again next year

Great hotel in a good location. Ample bars and restaurants close by catering for all types of food tastes. Plenty of shopping. 5 minute walk to the beach. The only downside would be the lifts.They seem to have a mind of their own,stopping wherever they felt like,going up when you want to go down.Tip-take a flask and some sandwiches because sometime you were there for a while before they decide to take you to your floor. Hopefully when we go back,we'll be having reunions with people we met in the lifts

The best thing about my stay was...

Great value for money and the food outside in the bars is 1st class

Best holiday ever!!!!!

Stayed here for 2 weeks in june 2011 hotel was beautiful staff were friendly and food was good. The corner pub next to the pool is excellent for families they have parrot shows bingo and karaoke every night followed by a disco until the early hours for kids. Frankos next door comes alive at night where they have club tunes for the young and lively right into the early hours of the morning. The pool is clean only downside is you have to pay for sunbeds every day but most people used blow up beds. Cant wait to go back all the PR guys are lovely and the food in the corner pub is great which also has an italian menu :)

The best thing about my stay was...

The only place in bulgaria that does real lamb kebabs like back home... :)
