Things to do in Sveti Vlas
With gorgeous hot weather and highs of 30°C in summer, beach holidays to Sveti Vlas are perfect for couple getaways, as well as holidays with family or friends. Dating back to the 2nd century, these days Sveti Vlas has been transformed into a modern resort. Famous for its port, Marina Dinevi, the smart marina is a stylish hub for the yacht set, with a wealth of restaurants and bars to match. Incidentally, the best way to explore the Black Sea coast is to rent a yacht and let the crew take care of your trip.
Whilst you’re in Sveti Vlas, you can rent a car and drive to Varna, which is about 56 kilometres away. Home to the striking Aladzha Monastery and Dormition of the Theotokos Cathedral, Varna is a hub of culture that also boasts the Varna Archaeological Museum. The Varna Aquarium and Ticha Stadium are also great places to spend time. But if you’d prefer to get away from the town, Golden Sands Beach and national park offer the best of Bulgaria’s natural attractions.
Stretches of soft sand make up the coastline, so you won’t struggle to find a nice little spot to sunbathe on your Sveti Vlas holiday. The sun seems to always shine on the beaches, due to the coast facing south, creating a natural Riviera. The beaches are broad, clean and covered in fine-grained golden sand. As the Pearl of the Black sea, with three beaches to choose from, it’s the middle beach that draws in the crowds. At a kilometre long, the sand at Central Beach is ideal for making sandcastles, with rows of parasols and sunbeds, as well as calm waters that are made for dipping into the sea.
The exclusive New Beach, next to the marina, is ideal if you want to mix sand with cocktails as it sits alongside a whole host of restaurants and bars. It’s also the proud recipient of a Blue Flag award. If you need peace, then the quiet pebbled East Beach, or Campinga, is for you.
