"A first impression" Golden Sands by Aprilbell

Golden Sands Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 70 photos


I stayed in the Golden Sands and I visited Balchik and Varna. The sea is just beautiful and I liked Varna because it's a quiet city with parks and lots of flowers.

Golden Sands and Balchik

They both are sea resorts on the bulgarian seaside. Small, but very attractive for tourists in the summer. If you ever reach Balchik, visit the Botanical Garden and Queen Marie's Summer Cottage.


A small city on the bulgarian seaside, Varna has a really beautiful beach. What I liked most about it were the parks and the Naval Museum. It's architecture is also interesting, especially the older buildings.

    Very nice page on what I found to be a surprisingly pleasant place. I like the sound of the wine-tasting at Balchik ;) Cheers, John.
