Virtually all visitors staying in Golden Sands will be on a pre-booked package tour, and many of the hotels tend to be booked solid through the summer. However, there are so many hotels here that you should be able to find a room somewhere.


Few people come to Golden Sands for the quality of the food, and indeed there are plenty of unremarkable restaurants aimed at passing tourists along the seafront. Try Taj Mahal for Indian food or Chiflika for steaks and kebabs.

Drinking & Nightlife

Golden Sands has a lively clubbing scene, with numerous venues around the resort, many inside hotels. Restaurants and bars often provide live entertainment, with everything from Bulgarian folk ensembles to Elvis impersonators and Tom Jones tribute acts on the bill. Arrogance Music Factory and PR Club Admiral are just two of the more popular nightclubs.
