Facts about the Sunshine Coast

More than half a century ago in 1959, the first tourist set foot on a Sunshine Coast beach. He was a citizen of the then Czechoslovakia and was from Ostrava.

Between the sea and the nearby mountain gorge, air currents are created that are unique to this area. This phenomenon is called the "rose of the winds" and is scientifically proven to have a beneficial effect on the human body.

The Sunshine Coast remains one of the few places on the Black Sea where sand dunes form naturally. More than 16 species of rare plants thrive in these dunes.

On the Sunny Beach you can visit many cafes and restaurants with typical and delicious Bulgarian cuisine. There is also a rich nightlife full of discos and nightclubs. During the summer season you can attend concerts, festivals and other cultural events. We also recommend visiting the nearby historic town of Nessebar, which is full of historic buildings that are typical of a seaside Bulgarian town.
