When it comes to European standards, Bulgaria is quite the exotic destination thanks to its close proximity to Turkey, Greece and the Black Sea. It boasts fewer tourist visits than the rest of Europe, which means that you can almost call it an insider’s tip – and that you’ll be able to avoid mad crowds at the popular tourist attractions. With a diverse landscape that includes a sandy coast, misty mountains and rural areas dotted with old, beautiful churches, Bulgaria has a lot to offer to a holidaymaker hungry for some culture and the fresh air. Read on to find out about a sweet holiday deal that I found for this hidden gem of Europe!
Your holiday in Bulgaria
Courtesy of Thomson.co.uk, this deal will whisk you away to the seaside resort on the coast of Bulgaria, bordering the magnificent Black Sea. The deal includes 7 nights in Bella Vista Beach Club for 2 as well as flights from Manchester airport and coach airport transfer to your hotel. While there, you’ll be able to enjoy some pretty views and let all your worries disappear as you indulge in the delicious all inclusive meal offers at the resort.
While enjoying the fresh breeze from the Black Sea, you’ll be staying in the Bella Vista Beach Club in the coastal town of Sinemoretz. The resort has a large pool, a buffet restaurants and a bar and received a 4/5 TripAdvisor rating. The rooms are pretty cozy and have an amazing balcony with some nice views of the area and a lounge area where you can snuggle up on a couch with a loved one.
Want to catch that romantic sunset on the beach? Make your way to the Mouth Beach of Sinemorets and feel the warm golden sand beneath your feet. Jumping into the cool Black Sea waters can give you goose bumps, but if you’re looking for a nice way to keep in shape or just chill, the hotel pool is a great place to relax and splash around in the water.

That’s right, you won’t need to, but it’s well worth heading out and exploring the area and the Bulgarian lifestyle and culture. You should definitely try some local dishes, as Bulgarian cuisine has some Turkish and Greek influences and is simply delicious. Try one of the characteristic cold soups! Immerse yourself in the Bulgarian lifestyle and have a Rakia with your meal, it’s quite strong but very tasty.
The nature lovers will surely want to make a trip to the Strandzha Nature Park which is just an hour away from Sinemorets. It houses a lush green flora, some fascinating wildlife and cute villages filled with wooden houses. It’s the perfect place to admire nature and simply let your thoughts and feet wander.
