The beautiful location of Golden Sands is one of Bulgaria’s biggest resorts along the shores of the Black Sea. The pure sand and stunning coast is popular among families and groups who are looking for a fun-filled break away. The resort is surrounded by Bulgaria’s rustic countryside and is also near to the bustling city of Varna, so there’s always something fun and interesting to do, in and out of the waves.

Excellent beaches

Golden Sands lives up to its name with attractive Blue Flag beaches. The 4km stretch of golden sand is said to be ‘the purest along the Black Sea’s shores’. The warm waters are clear and gentle, which is why the area is a hotspot for swimming and water sports. Lush, green forests are a picturesque backdrop against the glistening coastline. At the beach there’s a host of sports to get involved in, including beach volleyball, tennis and football, simply relax on the sun loungers that line the beach or take a walk up the promenade that is packed with shops, bars and restaurants. With the shallow waves and organised kids’ entertainment such as games and puppet shows, there’s more than enough for families to enjoy.

History and culture

Legend has it that the resort was created by ancient pirates that sailed north of Varna to dig for treasure. Today Golden Sands is famous for its stunning scenery, warm climate and nearby therapeutic hot springs. There’s a delightful, feel-good atmosphere on the shores of Golden Sands, with lots of entertainment to enjoy both day and night.
