South of Sunny Beach the city of Burgas borders the largest lakeland area in Bulgaria.
The shores of these lakes have been inhabited since the Bronze Age when they became a vital Thracian trading post, and new discoveries are being made all the time.
On the shore of Lake Mandrensko there’s ancient Deultum, with mostly Roman ruins that include the detailed hypocaust of a bathing complex.
On a column of land between Lake Mandrensko and the sea is the Poda Protected Area, wetlands that support 46 nesting bird species (with large colonies of herons and egrets) and welcome many more migratory species.
The scene at Sunny Beach is one you’ll know from the most popular Mediterranean beach resorts.
There’s a long and very wide golden sandy beach that reaches out for several kilometres next to Flower Street.
All along you’ll be able to hire a parasol and sun lounger, and after that you can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that all the amenities and services you could want are just a few steps away.
For young party animals there are beachfront bars with djs, while kids won’t be able to resist the playgrounds and bouncy castles next to the promenade.
Bulgaria’s first water park, Action Aquapark has been around since 2001 and gets bigger with each new year.
There are 30 water attractions in all here ranging from extreme plunges to more relaxing rivers and pools.
If you’re up for some action then you’ll want to make straight for the Free Fall, with speeds of up to 70 km/h, or the ominously-named Kamikaze, which starts at a height of 18 metres.
The Kids Zone is where the little guys and girls can make a splash in shallow pools or clamber through the various rope bridges and nets of the pirate-themed Adventure Island.
Sunny Beach is now well-established as one of Europe’s wildest party destinations, up there with Malia and Kavos for the 18-30 crowd.
The resort has some 15 bars and nightclubs, many of which are huge venues that can pack in a few hundred partygoers, and put on themed nights with paint and foam.
There are also several companies in Sunny Beach that organise bar crawls at night, and all sorts of activities and parties by day.
So if you’re a party animal you’ll be pretty pleased with what you find here.
In the countryside it also pays to call on someone who knows the terrain.
In Sunny Beach there are a couple of businesses that organise 4×4 excursions along the coast and into the backcountry.
If you aren’t renting a car during your trip to Sunny Beach, this represents the easiest way to see the landscapes around the resort.
You’ll visit a windswept lighthouse, a medieval orthodox church, swim at a deserted cove and explore Cape Emine the rugged and undeveloped headland just up from the resort.
The whole trip will be interspersed with little activities like walks, archery and rides on a horse and cart.
