Holidays to Golden Sands in Bulgaria
Unlike many other beach resorts in Eastern Europe, Golden Sands on the Black Sea Coast in Bulgaria has managed to escape over development and maintain much of its natural beauty. The main appeal of the resort is its gorgeous beach and lush green forests in the protected park next to the resort. In addition, there are some fascinating historical sites just a short drive away from Golden Sands.
What to do
Golden Sands enjoys warm sunny weather throughout the summer months and incredible natural scenery, making this the ideal seaside holiday destination in Bulgaria. Visitors on a holiday to Golden Sands can relax on the long stretch of white sand on a lounger overlooking the gently lapping waves of the Black Sea. This is a great spot for swimming as the water is calm, clean, and warm. In addition, guests can sunbathe by the pool at one of the many modern hotels and villas here.
Nature lovers will not want to miss the Golden Sands Natural Park, adjacent to the small resort town. This protected area is blanketed in lush green forest, with many old growth trees such as oaks, elms, and a massive 200-year old sycamore. Visitors to the park often come across interesting wildlife such as tortoises, deer, badgers, woodpeckers, owls, and colourful butterflies. There are many hiking and cycling trails here, some of which offer vistas with panoramic views over the resort and out to sea.
Another popular site just a short drive from Golden Sands is the Aladzha Monastery. This ancient religious sanctuary was carved out of the side of a cliff, and features an interesting grotto and catacombs. The cave dates back to the 12th century, although there is evidence that this area may have been used as a spiritual centre as far back as the 5th century.
