This lively Bulgarian port city is a fantastic beach getaway.
A quieter alternative – or ideal gateway – to the electric nightlife of nearby Sunny Beach and Sozopol resorts, transport yourself to the white sands and glittering waters of the Black Sea coast.
While many visitors use the city as their base when exploring this gorgeous coastline, Bourgas itself has so much going for it. Outstanding food, some great-value hotels and fantastic museums make this place a top holiday spot in its own right.
Take a trip to the nearby St Anastasia Island - a small volcanic island a short boat trip away, venture out to the Poda Conservation Centre, a 9,500 hectare wetland home to hundreds of different bird species, or marvel at the Sea Garden - one of Bulgaria's most beautiful parks, stretching along the coast with views out to Burgas Bay.
