Bulgaria’s aptly named Sunny Beach has been named the best value holiday destination for 2019 by Post Office Travel Money.
Offering sandy stretches, dramatic mountains and plenty of sunshine, this lively spot is not only affordable, but a great place for friends, families and couples.
With its buzzing nighlife, clean Blue Flag beach and fantastic location for day trips (UNESCO-protected Nessebar is just 15 minutes away), a Sunny Beach holiday is a must for travellers looking to get in on some bargain seaside fun with culture thrown in.
According to Post Office Travel Money, the Black Sea resort offers the best value when comparing 42 top holiday destinations, including Marmaris, the Algarve, Cape Town, Costa del Sol and Corfu.
Looking at resort costs, visitors to Sunny Beach can get a three-course evening meal for two with wine, insect repellent, suncream, a 1.5-litre bottle of water, a glass of wine, bottle of Coke, bottle of beer and cup of coffee for a mere £36.03. In Dubai, one of the most expensive places for a holiday according to Post Office, these will set you back a total £150.52.
With this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the price of flights and hotels to Sunny Beach, and were surprised to find that these were equally cheap – even if you’re looking to go luxe and stay in a five-star hotel!
