Bourgas was mainly developed in the twentieth century but most visitors on holidays in Bourgas won't be here for the architecture or museums. Let's check out the lakes and seaside!
Vaya Lake: Vaya is the biggest lake in Bulgaria but don't be fooled. The lake water is salty and not great for swimming. On the other hand, this is a very popular fishing spot and a great place for birdwatching.
Bourgas Sand Fest: Get a dose of beach culture while visiting Bourgas and check out this sand sculpture contest in July and August. It's free to enter.
Watersports: Bourgas has great windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions in the bay. There are also a few surfing schools around in the North Beach area. For the adventurers, why not try scuba diving while you're here?
