Varna, a close neighbour to the popular coastal resorts of Golden Sands, St. Constantine & Helena, and Albena is a major tourist destination that lies in the Bay of Varna and nestles in a deep valley between the Frengen Plateau and the Avren Plateau. Streching over 11 km in length, the city’s structure resembles an amphitheatre as it follows the curves of the Bay of Varna and is surrounded by gardens, vineyards and groves. It’s the largest city and seaside resort on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and is commonly referred to as the marine capitol of Bulgaria encompassing the so called “Bulgarian Las Vegas” and “Golden Sands” It’s Baroque, turn of the century and contemporary architecture offers a pleasant stroll through the shady streets of this cosmopolitan city.
Golden Sands, often called the pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast thanks to its unique park, cool fresh woods and vast stretch of fine golden sand, (3.5 km long and up to 100 metres wide) is located 17 km north of Varna and offers some excellent hotels and golf accommodation all nestled into the magnificent forest that slopes down to the coast.
Just 40km away from Varna is the area of Balchick which plays host to three world class golf courses guaranteed to make any golf holiday to Bulgaria extremely memorable. The BlachSeaRama and The Thracian Cliffs, two absolutely stunning signature courses set amongst the coastal cliffs and designed by Gary Player are both must play courses and the challenging but magnificent parkland-style golf course at the prestigious Lighthouse Resort designed by Ian Woosnam ensures an interesting and testing game for most of the non-professional players.
All in all, the pure quality of the golf courses and accommodation on offer in Bulgaria, with its warm climate and sun drenched beaches combined with great value for money, make Bulgaria the perfect setting for a European Golf Holiday.
