Many of our customers tell us they would like a simple beach holiday, somewhere a bit different, somewhere to just unwind, somewhere not too expensive. Well, we think we have found it in Sunny Beach, Bourgas, in Bulgaria.
Sunny Beach has been a major sunshine destination for decades. During the Soviet period, it was very popular with Russian and other Soviet visitors. It opened up to western tourism in the 80’s and flourishes today, hosting guests from all over Europe. Many new hotels have been built; many have been renovated or remastered.
The Karlova is a 3* hotel, in the centre of the town, very close to the beach. It has received high praises, not only from recent customers (see Tripadvisor!) but also from many of our fellow travel professionals, many of whom would rate it higher than any of the 4* hotels in town. Nice, bright rooms, spacious and modern lounge areas and poolside, good food and great location, just 200m from the beach. The beach itself is one of the longest, widest and sandiest on the entire Black Sea.
As for the weather, it should be just right for many of our regular customers. Average temperatures in September are mid 20’s with plenty of sunshine and not much rain. We can never guarantee that it will be so in 2019 but history shows it that it should be!
Other than simply relaxing, we can offer various things for you to do. Join us for a walk (or take the bus) to the UNESCO site of Nessebar, with narrow winding, cobbled lanes, ancient churches and wine-tasting, perhaps at the Messembria Winery. Take a trip with us to the famous mud baths at Pomorie about 15km away by local bus. Here you can smear yourself with mineral laden mud, before rolling in the sand and washing it off. The experience is amazing and your skin will feel so clean and refreshed afterwards. A great day out!
So, why not come and join us. We are offering a one-week escorted tour, which can be extended for a further week if you wish. Flights are direct from Belfast with Jet2 and transfers from the airport to the hotel take around one hour.
