Bulgaria is famous for its delicious food, friendly people and beautiful Bulgarian beaches at Black Sea Coast. Bulgarian Riviera is almost that famous as the French and Italian one. Except that it is much cheaper. It is a long, beautiful coastline with golden sand beaches and nice resorts for all budgets.
Updated August 2020: We felt in love with Bulgaria beaches and each year we try to spend a few days on a different resort.
All the beaches are beautiful but some of them are indeed special.
my top 5 Best BULGARIAN beaches AT Black Sea Coast
1. Sunny Beach
I can say this is the most popular beach resort in Bulgaria Sea. It has many nice hotels which offer at very reasonable prices accommodation, meals, and good entertainment. Most of the hotels are all-inclusive and have their private strip of golden beach sand. Nearby this holiday resort is Nessebar, one of the most beautiful ancient city from Bulgaria. Pay it a visit if you have the chance!
The only downside of this resort is that it is very crowded during summer months and if you don’t book early you might not find any rooms. Think in advance and book your accommodation at Sunny Beach right now!

2. Golden Sands Bulgaria Sea
One of the best Bulgarian beaches at Black Sea Coast is in Golden Sands. As the name suggested, the beach is a long and width strip of golden sandy beach perfect for your holiday. The resort is very close to Varna, one of the most important cities in Bulgaria.
This beach resort is more suitable for families. It is designed as a child-friendly beach resort with hotels adapted for families with kids. The prices are lower than in Sunny Beach, and you can find a large variety of hotels, most of them with all-inclusive offers.
The price-quality ratio is very good so a holiday in this resort is a good choice.

3. Albena Best Bulgarian Beaches
Albena has one of the safest places for swimming, especially if you have children. The water is warmer than in other parts of Bulgaria, calmer and the beach is very nice, too. There is a mini train to visit the resort. Your kids for sure will love it!
Restaurants and all-inclusive resorts are everywhere! Ice cream and other sweet temptations are spread everywhere!
Note that Albena and Golden Sands are much the same, both being more child-friendly than other Bulgarian beaches at Black Sea Coast.
Is this beach what you are looking for? Don’t waste your time! Tomorrow might be too late and you will find no rooms available to your desired hotel! Book in advance to be sure you will find what you want!

4. Irakli Bulgaria Sea
One of the last “wild” beaches from Bulgaria, Irakli is a place where young people try to escape from urban life. There are no resorts or restaurants! It is just a strip of golden sand where you can reconnect with nature! Don’t be surprised to find nudists here! They are pretty common on this beach!
People going on this beach are looking for simple things, for peace and tranquillity! Camping in the area is a frequent activity! So, if you are looking for a place close to nature, this is the perfect one!
5. Marina Dinevi
This is a place where luxury and style feels at home! Marina Dinevi is a small harbor with many luxury yachts. Everywhere you look you see luxury. It is a place where you can find very easy 5 star hotels and stylish restaurants! The prices are in accordance with the services offered but lower than in other similar places from Europe and the US.
The recommended activity here is going on the sea on a yacht with your friends and enjoy the sea, water, and life!
You will have some unforgettable moments here that is for sure!
