Destination guide

A beach resort offering the best of the beguiling Black Sea

Perched on the coast of the Black Sea, Sunny Beach is a resort town on a mission to be the country's most perfect vacation destination. Its waterfront is sandy, spotless, and lapped by gentle turquoise waves. Its bars and nightclubs are friendly by day and positively packed by night. Its water sports, water parks, and restaurants welcome sun-seekers of all ages. Whether you're looking to party into the wee hours with your best friends or just looking for a sunny spot to relax with your sweetheart, a Sunny Beach vacation rental is the ideal base camp for a seaside holiday.

Things to do

Ancient gems and all-around amusement at Sunny Beach

Visitors come to Sunny Beach to play, and the local businesses get it. Action Aquapark has 30 slides, lazy rivers, pools, and play areas suited to everyone from thrill-seeking teens to timid toddlers. There's also an amusement park steps from the beach, with rides, games, and a roller coaster. For history buffs, or just folks who feel ready for a day trip, the coastal city of Varna is a short drive north and home to the country's best Archeological Museum. You'll see everything from 6000-year-old jewelry to ancient surgical instruments.

Activities

Sunbathe, parasail, and dance your pants off

You won't need a guidebook to tell you what to do after settling in your Sunny Beach vacation rental. Simply drop off your bags and head to the town's 5 miles of white sand. The clean, crystal-clear water stays shallow when you're far from shore, which means kids can dive in without getting too scared. Adults have more options than you can count on both newly tanned hands—scuba diving, parasailing, jet skiing, and water skiing to name a few. When the sun goes down, the beachfront comes alive at its bars and nightclubs.

Weather

A beach for all seasons (but okay, mostly summer)

Sunny Beach is at its sunniest in summer, with average temperatures in the 70s, offering 12 long hours of sunshine every day, and little rain. By the time autumn breezes blow, the town is much quieter. The skies are still bright and temps still comfortable, but the sea temperature sinks to 60°. Temperatures are similar in spring, so look for a Sunny Beach vacation rental during one of these shoulder seasons if you want to save some cash. Just be aware that many businesses shut down from late fall to early spring.

Natural features

Sunny Beach agrees—sunlight is the best disinfectant

Your sun-drenched Sunny Beach vacation rental lies close to mountain ranges that send fresh, pollution-free air down from their peaks. As a result, you'll enjoy one of the healthiest climates in the world. The beach itself is known for its cleanliness, and it's one of the few places on the Black Sea coast where visitors can enjoy sand dunes. Just south of town is a lake district that features the Poda Protected Area, a wetland preserve where nature lovers can visit migratory birds and 46 nesting species, including egrets and herons.
