Things to do in Nessebar
Nessebar is a tale of two towns – the Old and the New. Step back in time on your Nessebar holiday and explore the town’s incredible history. Rumoured to have the highest number of churches per capita, with some dating back to the 11th century, catching up with the town’s past is highly recommended. Wander around the wooden houses, flower gardens and narrow, cobbled lanes to get a feel of the real Nessebar. It’s named “the wooden city” for a reason – all the buildings are made of wood.
In the New Town, the year-round street markets are a great place to pick up a Bulgarian souvenir and the brightly coloured stalls create a wonderful atmosphere for all to enjoy. Fancy getting your adrenaline pumping? The nearby resort of Sunny Beach on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast is known for its water-sports, sand dunes and incredible nightlife. Further afield is the coastal town of Varna that offers such delights as the sea gardens, a zoo, a dolphinarium and a planetarium.
Take a dip into the mesmerising Black Sea on your holiday to Nessebar. Running either side of the new town are two unmissable sandy beaches that you simply must check out. The South Beach has been awarded Blue Flag status for its 2.5-kilometre stretch of pristine sands, which is packed with parasols, making it a superb spot for sunbathing. If you haven’t packed a picnic then worry not, South Beach is also backed by a long promenade with an extensive choice of bars and restaurants, ideal for an afternoon drink and snack.
Need some peace and quiet? Head to the north of Nessebar, where the town’s second beach lies. It enjoys a much quieter location and is a great spot to really appreciate the Black Sea. This secluded beach has a ribbon of golden sand and is flanked by rolling dunes. Further along is the large Sunny Beach which also boasts Blue Flag status. This is the busiest beach around and is ideal for big groups who want to play beach and water games.
