Idyllic sands, plenty to do and personality aplomb, it really is no wonder Golden Sands is such a popular option for those seeking summer holidays in Bulgaria. So how would your perfect day here go? We've put our own one together in case you're seeking a bit of inspiration.
As the saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the morning. Bulgarian cuisine is renowned for using fresh ingredients and a simple but well-done approach. A favourite breakfast of the country is banitsa, a dough filled with various fillings that might include cheese, spinach, rice and meat, but the joy of staying in Golden Sands is that you will find a wide variety of cafes and eateries serving up croissants, cereal and anything else you can think of.
A morning of historical exploration
Seize the day and start with a morning of culture and history by heading to the Aladzha Monastery. It's an extensive complex - there are two churches, a chapel, cellars, dining room and more for you to explore. Accessing the monastery requires a short trek through the protected forest area adjacent to Golden Sands itself - a pleasant walk which should build your appetite a bit before you return to the resort for lunch.
The legend behind Golden Sands claims that pirates used the area to hide stolen booty, until one day the land took revenge on them by transforming the gold into sand. They must have stolen a lot of treasure over the years - Golden Sands' beach stretches for almost four kilometres and is 100 metres wide in places. Grab a book and chill on the beach or, if you prefer a more energetic afternoon, indulge in a watersport on the azure waves.
Relax in the evening
The fun doesn't stop as the sun goes down, either. Golden Sands has one of the most active nightlifes of the Bulgarian resorts, with a plethora of clubs and bars. Our perfect day would certainly include a visit to the award-winning Golden Sands Restaurant for dinner before finishing with a cheeky drink at Mercedes Bar - if we aren't worn out by all that lazing around on the beach, that is!
