Most popular holiday deals in Burgas
Perched on the Southern Black Sea coast of Bulgaria and only two hours ahead of GMT, the serene seaside city of Burgas is the perfect destination for relaxing beach holidays with the entire family. Many hotels are located right at the beach so you can easily find accomodation with a sea view to wake up to the sunrise on holidays in Burgas.
Planning sunny Burgas holidays
You will get a luxurious tan if you arrive in mid-summer, from July till August. The best time to find flight and hotel deals, however, is off-season, i.e. April, May, and September when, albeit a bit milder, the weather is sunny and temperatures rarely fall below 20°C. Direct flights from London to this coastal town take three hours. The Burgas airport is situated on the outskirts of the city with taxi services and bus routes connecting to the city centre.
Burgas holiday highlights
The fantastic sandy beach that runs for kilometres along the coastline is lined by the Sea Garden, a vast, leafy park with tall trees where you can enjoy a picnic or let your children play. In late April and early May, the Flora flower and garden exhibition turns the area into a fragrant garden of delights. Tree-lined, traffic-free boulevards with street-side cafes and small independent boutiques make the city centre ideal for outings to shop and explore the city's hidden gems. Burgas and the Sea, a local pop music festival, runs in August.
Burgas for gourmets
Burgas holidays promise lots of culinary treats. Affordable street food is offered on every corner, such as savoury takeaway pasties, sandwiches and barbecued meats to sample on your way to the beach. You can enjoy more sophisticated meals at the restaurants, pubs and pizzerias in the city centre. These establishments serve delectable local cuisine with an accent on salads and seafood dishes sourced from fresh vegetables and the local fish catch.
