The beach is the main attraction at Sunny Beach, especially for families, with the sand perfect for sandcastles and the sea inviting holidaymakers to take a dip. The curvature of the bay makes it sheltered, which means there are few big waves, providing the perfect conditions to enjoy a pedalo or banana boat ride.
For the more energetic, there is the chance to take part in all manner of watersports, from waterskiing and jetskiing to paragliding and scuba diving. Back on the shore, volleyball courts and a mini golf course provide more opportunities for fun-filled afternoons for the family.
When you have exhausted everything that the beach has to offer, take the kids to one of the many water parks in the area. There are large ones, such as Action Aquapark and Aqua Paradise, which have enough slides and pools to keep the kids entertained all day. There are also two smaller ones – the Kuban Aqua Park and Pirates of the Caribbean Mini Aqua Park – that are more suited to younger children.
Just five kilometres from Sunny Beach is the ancient town of Nessebar, which makes for a wonderful daytrip. Spend some time wandering around what is essentially a living museum, taking in 3,000 years of history and culture. You will be instantly charmed by the cobbled streets and picturesque gabled houses.
