Summer holiday to Bulgaria

Enjoy Strandja's coast

The Strandja Summer holiday to Bulgaria is a beach holiday with a difference! You'll avoid the huge resort hotels, and stay in small hotels and guesthouses along the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.

Our walk descriptions and directions take you to our favourite beaches, ranging from quiet and undiscovered to more lively in vibrant coastal towns. By including a few excursions and walks in inland Strandja you can sample some of the best culture and nature Strandja Nature Park has to offer.

Strandja has a Mediterranean climate with the highest number of sunshine hours in the whole of Bulgaria during Summer. So for sun, sea, and beach, fascinating culture and beautiful nature, head to Strandja this Summer!

As a bonus, we donate to the Biodiversity Foundation for every visitor who comes to Strandja, so while you are enjoying Bulgaria's best beaches, you can rest assured that your holiday is helping the people that are working very hard to protect Bulgaria's remaining undeveloped coastline.

Summer in Strandja is great for recharging your batteries in an unknown destination off the beaten track.
