Things to do in Golden Sands
As its name suggests, the main attraction of a holiday to Golden Sands is its beautiful beach. The soft sands are ideal for long days spent soaking up the sun, while the crystal-clear waters of the sea are perfect for those who like to swim or enjoy the water sports on offer. Those who enjoy nightlife will find lots on offer here, with beach bars and clubs, as well as larger clubs in the town itself. Kids will love the water park or, if you prefer to simply relax, why not spend your days enjoying Bulgarian food and shopping in the local shops and markets where you can pick up a bargain or two? Despite being the ultimate beach holiday destination, the buzzing historic city of Varna is just a short hop away, adding yet more culture and an optional cosmopolitan flare to your sunny escape.
A holiday to Golden Sands can be as relaxing or as active as you like. Lie back and soak up the warm sunshine of the Black Sea Coastline of Bulgaria, rent sun loungers and enjoy having your cocktails and snacks delivered straight to your lounger, or head into the sea for a cooling dip or to try some of the water sports on offer here. Scuba diving is one of the most popular activities and allows you to see the stunning underwater world with reliable instructors who know the waters well. If you prefer to keep to the top of the waves snorkelling is also available or you could try renting a boat and exploring the coastline. If you simply want to relax the gentle waters of the sea are ideal for little ones as well.

Your Golden Sands questions answered
Both resorts are beautiful and offer fine beaches with soft sands and shallow waters. When it comes to nightlife, Sunny Beach is the one with the more varied night scene – clubs here are bigger, better and there's more of them. However, Golden Sands is a bit more family-friendly while still offering a nice selection of bars and clubs for all night dancing.
