Primorsko (meaning ‘by the sea’) is a busy resort 52km southeast of Burgas and popular mainly with Bulgarian families. It is far less developed than resorts to the north, although the long, crowded beach is quite attractive and the usual water sports are available, such as jet-skiing (10 minutes, 40 lv) and paddleboating (one hour, 10 lv), although the water is very shallow at low tide. Operating at Primorsko’s tiny airport, SkyDive Bulgaria (0899868984; www.skydivebulgaria.com) is the place to go to for throwing yourself out of planes. The town centre, meanwhile, is crammed with takeaway stands and tacky souvenir stalls, but little else.
From the town square, along bul Treti Mart (the main road into town), it’s a short walk south to the beach. The best shops are along ul Cherno More, which heads southeast from the square.
