So what makes Sunny Beach, Bulgaria stand out?
The answer is probably summed up in the most compact and direct manner by the Post Office survey the results of which came out last year. The Sunny Beach holidays are ranked on the top when it comes to access the best-valued seaside destinations on the planet.

The cheap food and drinks in the resort add to the low prices of the hotels to blend the mix of the budget-oriented vacation.
Spending less money on the holidays is great, but is there something else? In Bulgaria, Sunny Beach and other places on the coastline attract the travelers with the beauty of the seaside sites and with nice conditions around the sea. The Black Sea shores have some rocky areas but the most prominent resorts offer wonderful sandy strips to the tourists to crash a few steps away from the water. Speaking of the weather, Sunny Beach welcomes its guests for more than one quarter of the year. The Sunny Beach 2018 season officially started in mid-June but the temperature two or three weeks earlier was also suitable for a holiday experience. The water is lukewarm for the first visitors in late-May but in July and August the sea is warm enough for everyone and the days with strong winds and high waves occur typically rarely. If there is more luck with the weather, Sunny Beach season might last beyond mid-September.
