DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1 - Welcome to Sunny Beach

We will meet you at Bourgas Airport and transfer you to your hotel on the seaside. The most popular of all Bulgaria’s beaches, Sunny Beach is the country’s largest and liveliest beach. Owning an 8km-long stretch of fine golden sand, Sunny certainly lives up to its name, averaging approximately 1700 hours of sunshine between May and October. Lined with high-rise resorts, and restaurants, watersports hire camps and some of the craziest nightclubs in the country, this thrill of a beach also boasts a different, less admired kind of wildlife: it’s home to some of the coast’s last surviving natural sand dunes and rare plant species. Sunny Beach is across the bay from the historic city of Nessebar.

Spend your rest of the day relaxing on the shore or enjoying some watersports and hit a nightclub to enjoy a dream night out.

Day 2 - Sunny Beach Aqua Park

Enjoy a fun-filled day out at the Action Aqua Park in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria’s first waterpark. On arrival, move straight inside and spend a half or full day as you wish to enjoy the park’s many attractions at your leisure.

You may dive in to swim in one of many pools or dash around in the wave pools, then take your adrenaline pumping on the extreme water slides, including the Black Hole, the Free Fall, the Kamikaze, and the outstanding Uphill Water Coaster. Alternatively, take an entertaining family cruise along the lazy river, rest in the hydromassage pool, or top up your tan by the poolside.

There are abundant activities for all ages both in and out of the water, including the H2O Adventure Island for younger children, as well as bars, restaurants, and an Ice Cream House.

Day 3 - Nessebar

Today morning we will pick you up from your hotel drive for 30 minutes to Nessebar. Often regarded as the Pearl of the Black Sea, the historic city of Nessebar dates back to antiquity when it was established as a Thracian settlement known as Menebria. Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Bulgarians, Crusaders, and Ottomans all took curves reinforcing the ancient city, and the narrow peninsula on which it is placed. Today a stroll on its cobblestone streets will bring you to remains of some 40 brick churches, dating back as far as the 5th century. The charming city is such a great site it’s recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Day 4 - Nessebar Beaches

Nessebar has a tiny beach in the Old Town and two more large beaches in the new town, the Northern Beach and the Southern Beach. You can relax on a sunbed under an umbrella or be active at the beach. You can enjoy Kitesurfing, surfing, and scuba diving at almost every beach in Nessebar. You can also play beach volleyball or hire a boat to explore the coastline better.

Many restaurants and cafes offer fresh fish and seafood. The old fishermen were known for their fish soup which you can try today in almost every restaurant in Nessebar. Don’t miss the shark specialties or the tiny fried fish called Tsatsa. Stay fresh with the typical Bulgarian cold soup tarator made from cucumbers, yogurt, garlic, and dill. In the evening we will leave Nessebar and drive for about 2 hours to reach Golden Sands.

Day 5 - Golden Sands

Golden Sands does really have golden sand. Many believe it’s the finest sand in Europe. Golden Sands is less lustful than Sunny Beach but comes a close second in terms of mega-resorts and nightlife that earned it the name ‘Party Street’. For an afternoon view of the sunshine, take a gentle walk through Golden Sands Natural Park to view a beautiful combination of wildlife, gushing hot springs and green forests. Walk through the park to spot reptiles, birds and a variety of wild animals including red deer, wild boar, and beech marten. Explore rare and endangered plants with over 500 different species of flora making up the marvelous scenery.

Day 6 - The Aladzha Rock Monastery

Only 4km from Golden Sands is one of Bulgaria’s most impressive landmarks, The Aladzha Rock Monastery. The Monastery is extremely outstanding but little is known about the real heritage of the site. Some historians believe that the strange rock formation may have been first populated in the 5th century BC. Walk among the amazing medieval remains to see the wonderful construction with catacombs, walkways, and stairs carved into the cliff-side 40m above ground level.

Day 7 - Aquapolis water park in Golden Sands

Today morning we will drive the short distance to Aquapolis for a dashing adventure like no other. The park is adorned in a unique Mediterranean style and for charming views of the coast take a walk up the hillside.

There’s a variety of slides and rides for those in search of a thrilling experience. Reach a fast pace as you whizz down the bumpy path of Niagara, be launched from immense heights on the high-speed slide Kamikaze, or travel through amazing curves and drops in the dark pipes of the Black Hole.

If you prefer to spend the evenings enjoying cocktails at a bar on the beach or blaring out karaoke classics with your friends, Golden Sands offers amazing nightlife to meet your needs. Your hotel has entertainment facilities, but there is plenty to cater to those who wish to go out too.

Day 7 - Varna

Today we will drive you a short 25 minutes to Varna, Bulgaria’s third-largest city. There’s a lot to do with loads of shops, restaurants, and entertainment lining the streets. The bustling city is packed with traditional Bulgarian charm that can be viewed through the unique customs, architecture and beautiful cathedral.

After taking in the amazing Bulgarian heritage, have a leisurely walk among the cute little shops and markets or walk down to the aquarium to see the exotic fish.

Day 8 - Departure

Today is the last day of your trip, We will transfer you to the Verna airport for your home flight. Now you can also recommend this tour to your friends as the best way to travel to Europe.
