Golf and spa:
Oftentimes foreign tourists turn out to be keen golfers who get really disappointed when they find out that they can’t play their favourite sport just because the destination they have chosen for their summer vacation does not have the appropriate facilities. Well, the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast is not among them. The town of Balchik boasts three of the best 18-hole golf courses in Bulgaria designed by the renowned professional golf players Gary Player and Ian Woosnam. They should satisfy the whims of even the most capricious fans of the club and ball.
The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast is also regarded as a significant spa destination where apart from the standard recreational procedures every spa offers, one will have the opportunity to try some unusual and exotic ones as well - like the mud-therapy, for example. The coastal town of Pomorie, located 20 km south of Burgas, is one of the famous seaside resorts in the country and also the biggest mud-treatment centre on the Balkans where hundreds of people go to relax and enjoy the healing qualities of medicinal mud.
