Black Sea fun in the Burgas sun

Burgas might only be Bulgaria's 4th biggest city, but it's often considered the country's most lively. There's more than just the town though when you stay in a Burgas Province vacation rental. All the way along the province's Black Sea coastline you'll find pretty historic towns and sun-soaked sandy beaches. The varied museums, archaeological sites and myriad outdoor activities, both on and off the water, make it particularly suited for families looking for a summer getaway. Foodies should know that Burgas has some of Bulgaria's best restaurants, particularly seafood, which is caught daily off the coast.

Things to do

Open-air concerts in Burgas

When you stay in a Burgas Province vacation rental, you'll find yourself drawn to the Sea Garden, a 70,000 square-meter park which hosts everything from playgrounds to open-air theaters. If you tire of the beach, this is the place to come, particularly in September when the park hosts the annual Sand Festival. Are you a first-timer to Bulgaria? You can get up to speed with the culture and customs at the Ethnographic Museum, housed inside a 19th-century house. While you're there, try to keep some time left to swing by the Natural History Museum, just a few minutes away.

Activities

There's more to Burgas than the beaches

The first port of call for most staying in a Burgas Province vacation rental is the sandy beaches, which line up along the Black Sea coast. You can settle in for a day of sun-bathing, swimming and water sports, broken only with a lunchtime amble up to one of the nearby seafood restaurants. Dragging yourself away from the sand can be more difficult than it sounds during the summer, but there are hiking and biking trails, waterways to kayak along and extreme sports like bungee jumping and paragliding to experience if you wish. For something more sedate, try a tasting at one of the seafront wineries.

Weather

Avoid the crowds by visiting Burgas in spring or fall

The summer months are, unsurprisingly, the busiest months for Burgas Province vacation rentals, when families from Bulgaria and abroad descend upon the coast for sun and fun. You're almost guaranteed hot, bright and dry weather that peaks around the mid-80s in July and August, though June sees its fair share of rainfall. If beach crowds aren't your thing, try nabbing a rental between April and May, or September, when the weather is often warm, the evenings balmy and there are far fewer travelers to contend with on the sand. Winter rental prices take a nosedive but expect a carpet of snow.

Natural features

Bring binoculars to Burgas

There's plenty of top wildlife spots near your Burgas Province vacation rental, but if you're new to the area, a good introduction is the Poda Protected Area. This wetland reserve, just a short distance south of Burgas, is chock-a-block with marshlands and freshwater lake habitats. Bird-watchers should remember to pack their binoculars because this relatively small park has more than 250 species of avifauna, many of which nest along the lake's banks. Here, you can catch a glimpse of magnificent herons, spoonbills and much more. A must for anyone interested in nature and wildlife.
