For an exciting summer holiday of endless partying in a seaside resort, try Bulgaria’s aptly named Sunny Beach, or Hvar Island off the coast of Croatia.

Beach Holidays in Bulgaria
Want a beach holiday but sick of visiting the same resorts? Take a break from Spain with Balkan holidays and head over to Bulgaria, an increasingly popular destination for European holiday goers in search of sun, sea and sand. Sunny Beach is a fun and friendly strip of coast lined with shops, attractions and a great variety of bars, restaurants and clubs, all within walking distance of the main strip of hotels. During the day you can have a go at jet skiing and then recover with a massage right by the shore – what could be more relaxing than a pamper session while you lie outdoors in the shade, lulled by the sound of the waves? Throughout the nights, Sunny Beach really lights up, with funfair rides and beachfront bars to explore. And not to mention that party scene - with plenty of beach clubs scattered all over the place, you will not run out of places to dance at!
Things to do on holidays in Croatia
Central Dalmatia is one of the most popular regions in Croatia for tourists, and it’s truly a diverse and vibrant area. From white sandy beaches to historic cities to the islands sitting just off the coast, there’s something for every Balkan holidays customer here. Explore the region’s largest city, Split, where you can wander through the ancient palace of Diocletian, the Roman emperor who founded the city hundreds of years ago. The palace complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and also contains the Cathedral of St Domnius, where you can climb the bell tower for a fantastic view.
Explore the islands of Brac, Hvar and Vis, all reachable by boat and each with its own charms. On Brac, you can visit the Hermitage Blaca, an old monastery cut into the rock face and fashioned out of caves, nowadays hosting a museum of holy artefacts. Vis is the furthest island from the mainland and is home to charming fishing villages and rugged terrain perfect for walking or hiking.
