There are many wonderful beaches along the Bulgarian coastline, some of them modern and with all the facilities needed, while others are some oasis of peace and the perfect place for meditation.

Here are our suggestions for the best 5 beaches in Bulgaria

1. Bolata beach

One of the most beautiful beaches at Black Sea Coast, Bolata beach with its calm and turquoise waters is a hidden gem at Black Sea Coast. The beach is part of a natural reserve and is surrounded by rocky cliffs which protect the golf and the beach against the wind.

In the past, access in this area was forbidden because it was part of a military base. Today there are no resorts in the area. The closest town is Kavarna where you can find many options to spend the night.

The beach is accessible only by car and the closest airport is Varna, located 50 kilometres away.

Around the Bolata beach, there are some very famous golf resorts where you can spend the night. We chose to stay at Thracian Cliff Golf and Spa and Lighthouse Golf and Spa.

Both resorts are beautiful, well maintained and offer great services. You have a wonderful sea view from most of the rooms and the food is very tasty and well cooked.

2. Nessebar beach one of the best beaches in Bulgaria

Nessebar is a wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site located close to Sunny beach resort, one of the most famous resorts from Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.

Most people visit the ancient ruins from the city and explore the ancient sites without knowing that Nessebar has its own beach, a very beautiful and secluded beach not as crowded and commercial as the ones from Sunny Beach.
