The variety of luxury hotels in Bulgarian summer resorts is striking and many of these hotels are built in a few steps from the beach. It is wise to book your accommodation in advance, especially if you plan to come during July or August, which is the peak of the summer season here and it is hard to find a spare room. The duration of the summer tourist season continues four months – from June till October. In which case we recommend booking a flight and hotel deal in advance to ensure no stress on your break from the cockpit.
