Holidays to Duni present swanky hotels in one hand, and a mammoth sandy beach in the other.
Made to measure
In Duni, all eyes are glued to the beach. This Bulgarian seaside village literally translates as ‘dunes’, which is no surprise when you mull over its tanning traits. There wasn’t much here until a fistful of hotels were built close to the sands, so everything’s custom-made for holidaymakers. And thanks to the rural backdrop, it’s not lost that laidback, mellow mood.
Big and little beaches
As beach resorts go, this place has got a real ace up its sleeve. A huge sweep of shortbread-coloured sand splits up the Black Sea and the rolling green countryside inland. It’s a couple of miles long, so there’s bags of room for bronzing. Leave this Blue Flag stretch behind, and you’ll stumble across a quieter pair of pint-sized coves a little further on.
It takes less than 15 minutes to drive to Duni’s better-known neighbour, Sozopol. This port town’s the history buff in these parts, with winding cobbled streets, time-worn churches and a tried-and-tested fishing trade on its CV. A modern troupe of restaurants and bars keeps this old timer from losing touch, and it’s got a couple of its own Grade-A beaches to holler about, too.
