Golden Sands is one of the oldest Black Sea resorts in Bulgaria. It is situated 16 km north of Varna and is the maritime capital of Bulgaria. There is a large number of hotels, which are situated among the cool freshness of the forest of National Park Golden Sands, right next to the golden beach. Golden Sands (Zlatni Pyasatsi) is famous for the fine sand, which looks like a golden dust. A legend tells about Black Sea pirates who buried a large treasure of gold on the beach of today’s resort. However, the sea took revenge on the bandits for the evil they had done by changing the jewelry and gold into fine golden sand. The resort also offers entertainment options – clubs, bars, restaurants and various attractions for an unforgettable seaside vacation.
