Bulgaria has been our second top selling destination for summer 2018. This Eastern European country is a member of the EU and still offers exceptional value for money for British holidaymakers. With a loyal legion of repeat visitors, we look at five reasons that attract people back to this lovely country and its resorts on the Black Sea Coast time and time again.
Reason 1 - Beautiful Sandy Beaches: Bulgaria is an ideal destination for families and couples looking for a beach based holidays. The major resorts of Sunny Beach, Golden Sands and Albena have miles and miles of golden sandy beaches that offer a place to relax, enjoy some water sports, pedaloes or enjoy a splash in the Black Sea. With a choice of modern hotels and for a real experience, the communist style concrete buildings, there is always somewhere to stay no matter what the budget.
Reason 2 - Friendly Locals: The people of Bulgaria will offer you a very warm welcome. Visit a local bar and have a drink of Raika, the national drink which tastes like Firewater and talk the night away about football, your day at the beach or anything else. The locals are always happy to talk late into the evening whilst toasting your new friendship.
Reason 3 - Fantastic Value for Money: For what feels like that past one hundred years, Bulgaria has been voted as the best value for money tourist resort in numerous surveys including the Post Office. It really is cheap as chips! A locally produced beer or wine can cost as little as 40p-50p. Enjoy a pizza or chicken and chips for less than £2. Even the fancy fish restaurants in upmarket Nessebar are a fraction of the cost compared to other resorts around Europe. Live the life of royalty for next to nothing!
Reason 4 - Lively Resorts: The resort of Sunny Beach is well renowned for having a lively strip that offers lively bars, nightclubs and bar crawls for the 18-30 crowd. As well as the main strip the resort has loads of family friendly bars, restaurants and for the night owls, plenty of discos and clubs. Golden Sands also has a lively centre that is not quite as boisterous and appeals to all ages.
Reason 5 - Hit The Slopes: As well as summer sun, you can enjoy some winter skiing in the beautiful mountains of Bulgaria. With quite possibly the best priced ski passes in Europe, the resorts of Borovets, Bansko and Pamporovo offer exceptional value for money. Whilst you don’t have the challenging advanced slopes that you find elsewhere, the resorts are ideal for beginners and improving intermediates. Ski and boot hire are really cheap and the après-ski offers loads of choice at a much cheaper price than the Alps.
Reason 6 -The Romans Loved It: There are a number of Roman sites around Bulgaria and some of the resorts are close by too. Nessebar and Sozopol are popular tourist resorts that have remains of Roman sites and Varna also has a few sites in the immediate area. The Romans stayed for centuries so you know you are on to a good thing!
