The location is unique
Golden beach has got its name from the yellow grained sand. It dominates the coast, which stretches over three kilometers directly on the Black Sea. The sand is very fine and perfect for a relaxing day at the sea. There is also a legend that the name comes from pirates. They are said to have hidden a great treasure there long ago, which is how the name golden beach is derived. It is clear that the name does not only serve as a marketing idea for optimal vacations in Bulgaria, but it has already for several centuries been the name of this part of the Black Sea coast.

Varied infrastructure for every vacation requirement
In recent years, a comprehensive tourist infrastructure has developed on the golden beach, which includes numerous hotels, bars, restaurants and stores. The range of leisure activities on offer has also developed enormously, whereby the region benefits from the fact that the prices for food or drinks, but also excursions and activities, are significantly below the level in Germany. Especially young people feel therefore very comfortable in Goldstrand and can spend relaxing hours at the sea for little money, where a lot of variety is offered.
