Saint Vlas forms part of the ‘Bulgarian Riviera’ and combines a traditional Bulgarian village with more recent apartment developments. The hillside resort has developed as a more upmarket and less crowded alternative to the mass tourism associated with nearby Sunny Beach.
There are many restaurants locally providing traditional Bulgarian food or catering for more western tastes.
The newly opened marina at Saint Vlas provides for a more stylish / exclusive night out.
Saint Vlas has several sandy beaches and the marina offers various local boat trips, boat hire and cruises, including trips to Sunny Beach and Nessebar.
