Golden Sands is one of Bulgaria’s biggest resorts on the Black Sea, and it’s easy to see why it grows more popular every year. The 4-kilometre long beach offers clean, warm sand, crystal-clear water, and a beachfront promenade that is packed with bars and shops. The seaside resort in northern Bulgaria enjoys a mild year-round climate, and there are a number of activities – in and out of the waves – for children and adults.
Things to do
Golden Sands Bulgaria is known for its mineral pools and baths, and everyone should take a dip at least once. Said to have healing powers, these hot springs definitely make you feel wonderfully relaxed! When you’re not chilling in a mineral pool, try out some of the many water sports on offer. From windsurfing and water-skiing to diving and boating, if you can do it on the water, you can do it at Golden Sands.
Children will love the waterpark Aquapolis as well as the mini-golf and pony rides on the beach. Day trips to Varna show you the historic architecture of the ancient region, and wine tours of the area are a fun day out for couples on a romantic getaway. There are so many things to do in and around Golden Sands that you’ll really have the holiday of a lifetime.
