On the one hand, guest houses and small family hotels from Sinemorets to Elenite are about BGN 10 cheaper per night per person. The reason is that more and more Bulgarians are heading south, and the bed base there is full. The southern spirit is bohemian. The party runs both in the beach pubs and in the famous clubs.
At the same time, people here have realized that it is better to have a lot of employment than to rip off tourists. The latter, with thin pockets from the last year, do serious research before choosing a place for the summer.
Overnight stays in hotels in the major resorts, in the south - Sunny Beach and in the north - Golden Sands, are comparable. Everything else - deckchairs, umbrellas, other beach services are 50% cheaper on the Southern Black Sea coast. In some places, the concessionaires have lowered the prices for beachgoers to the sanitary minimum. They find compensation in another way from the tenants of restaurants and attractions.
Prices in restaurants. A voice was raised that they had grown ... ungodly. We'd say the feel is pretty deceiving. Dinner with seafood delicacies, salads + drinks - from brandy to wine, non-alcoholic, dessert and others, stay between 4 and 5 hours, for 5 people is between BGN 160 and 180. The main unit of measure - the Shop salad is BGN 6.50 - 8.00. less you could stay at home and do it yourself.
Vacation costs are much higher for people from Western Bulgaria also due to transportation costs. The Trakia highway shortens the travel time and from Sofia to Burgas it takes about 3 and a half hours. The road to Varna along Hemus is about 5 hours.
In general, the road infrastructure in the Burgas region is better developed and maintained. It takes 15-17 minutes to get to Sunny Beach, on a first-class road that bypasses Pomorie and Aheloy, where until recently there were big traffic jams.
And remember, we Southerners know how to keep a man coming back again next summer.
