There is a mixture of modern tourist resorts and other things to do in Bulgaria, with Blue Flag beaches and cities crammed with history and culture.

Bulgaria is gaining in popularity with holidaymakers and although it is not as well-known as the Greek Islands or the Spanish costas, all that is set to change in the next ten years.

Sunny Beach is the most popular tourist resort in Bulgaria and offers visitors an 18km stretch of beach with everything from football pitches and massage rooms to markets, fairs and wild nightlife.

Venture across the picturesque coast in style on a luxurious catamaran. Take the opportunity to help sail the boat or lounge under the glorious sun on the netted hulls and make the most of this amazing tour.

Golden Sands is situated in the Varna region of Bulgaria and boasts a Blue Flag beach and access to some of Bulgaria’s best-known attractions. A monastery is carved into the cliff and thermal springs can be found in the country’s only desert!

If you prefer tranquil surroundings on holiday, take a tour of Obzor and Nessebar. With a 6km beach, relaxing bars, restaurants and a UNESCO protected old town in Nessebar, you will find plenty of alternative things to do in Bulgaria without the crowds of busier resorts.

Whether you travel to Borovets in the summer or the winter, exploring on horseback is one of the best ways to fully immersive yourself in the stunning scenery. Experienced riders and beginners are catered for and this is one tour you will not forget.

Go and see the ‘Bulgarian Stonehenge’ with a visit to Beglik Tash. Just a short drive north of Primorsko, the ancient site was once used by Thracian tribes for rituals and religious ceremonies.
