Bulgaria Holidays

The beautiful Lake Zabecko in Bulgaria
Fine beaches along the coastline

Bulgaria is located in the eastern region of the Balkans and is bordered by the former Yugoslavia, Turkey, Greece, Romania and the Black Sea. Bulgaria's Black Sea coastline and eastern frontier is nearly 400 kilometres long. Fine beaches can be found all along the coastline. Varna, St. Konstantine and Golden Sands offer fine sand; Nessebar and Sunny Beach have golden sand. Other well-known beaches include those at Bourgas, Albena, Elinite and Pomorie.

The Black Sea is ideal for swimming

The beaches in Bulgaria tend to shelve gently into the sea and this together with the lack of tides makes the Black Sea ideal for swimming and safe for children. Perhaps of all package holiday destinations from the UK, The Black Sea is unusual for its low level of salt. Black Sea water is 18 parts per thousand salt compared with 36 in the oceans, 39 in the Mediterranean Sea and 42 in the Red Sea. The Black Sea enjoys a mild climate with low rainfall with an average summer temperature of 28C to 30C and sea temperature of 24C to 26C. In the summer months of July and August there are around ten hours of sunshine a day.

Fantastic value for money

Bulgaria offers fantastic value for money and a family package holiday can be taken here for less than in most other countries in Europe. You'll also find superb sandy beaches many with EEC Blue Flags. The countryside has magnificent mountain ranges with wild fauna and flora, lush forests and mineral springs. Keep checking our late offers and deals. To make your holiday even more affordable, take advantage of our low deposit scheme.

For the early birds, paying a low deposit at time of booking makes any holiday much more affordable.

Weather in Bulgaria

Bulgarian beach resorts continue to rise in popularity due to an enviable hot and sunny climate during summer months. Humidity is low with average temperatures reaching upwards of 26C and 11 hours of sunshine per day. The climate here is typically Mediterranean, hot and dry, with offshore breezes but can be interrupted by the occasional thunderstorm or light rain. The climate inland is more variable with lower temperatures at altitude and although annual rainfall is low, it is evenly distributed throughout the year.

All inclusive holidays at top Black Sea resorts

Most of Bulgaria’s all inclusive hotels are based in beach resorts like Sunny Beach and Golden Sands on the Black Sea coast. You will also find plenty of cheap all inclusive hotels in resorts like Bourgas and Albena. Also look out for bargain breaks in family resorts like Varna and Nessebar. Cheap all inclusive accommodation can be found virtually anywhere along the Black Sea coast. Many of the cheapest hotel deals are to be found in spring and late summer when the mountains are a delight and the Black Sea resorts are much quieter.
