Golden Sands - A short Guide


One of the better ways to explore Golden Sands is by using it as a base for exploration on the Black Sea Coast. But that isn’t to say there isn’t plenty to do there - because there is. If you’re visiting Bulgaria purely for a beach holiday - then you’re going to love it there. The 4 KM stretch of beach is golden home to inviting clear waters, and though it’s quite built up, it still retains a few areas of quiet for those who like to escape the crowds. For the more adventurous types, you’ll love the plethora of activities that are available on the beach. There are jet ski’s, banana boats, wind surfing, parasailing and yachting all readily available. Even if you’re not an accomplished skipper you can rent a smaller sized boat or a larger one with a captain for the day. If you feel like relaxing then head to one of the beach massage parlous and then grab a spot and sun yourself for the day, with a cocktail from the bar. On the beach you can take part in tennis matches and volleyball or you can head into the forest for a picnic lunch on horseback at the equestrian centre.


If you prefer your sports a little more high-octane and dry, then a visit to the off-road adventure centre at Chiflika Chukurovo will suit you. There you can head into the forest either on a quad bike or a jeep and afterwards visit the ethnographic centre close by. If you‘re not into off-road driving then the Go Kart track might be more you thing - it’s situated at the northern end of Golden Sands Beach, closeby to the yacht port, and there’s even a crazy golf course if you want a little fun afterwards. The track isn’t very large though, so if you want something a little bigger - either try the off road centre or head to Varna where there is a larger track - which is actually the largest in Bulgaria. While you’re in Varna you should also check out the Archaeological museum and the 19th century Bulgarian summer palace Euxinograd. There are some great beaches in Varna too - so be sure to take a look while you’re there, and if you stay into the evening, a visit to one of the city’s waterside restaurants will round off your evening perfectly.
