Holidays to Sinemorets slow things down to a snail’s pace, with countryside giving way to wild beaches.
Follow your finger all the way down to the bottom of Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast, and that’s where you’ll find Sinemorets. Here, it’s all about slipping below the radar, which is easy since you’re surrounded by a huge nature reserve. That said, the beaches are worth shouting about – the village is home to some white-sand stunners.
Both of Sinemorets’ beaches are still in touch with their wild side. Restaurants and hotels have been substituted for thick woods and rugged cliffs. Plus, it’s 10 minutes’ drive to super-secluded Silistar beach. It’s one of the few in Bulgaria with protected status, so the only thing interrupting your sunbathing will be the odd hooting owl.
The countryside rolling out of the village is ripe for exploring. You’ve got the gigantic Strandzha Nature Park – the country’s biggest protected area – for a neighbour. It lines up everything from centuries-old woodland and tiny villages to river valleys and creeks. And you could clap eyes on a wildcat, otter or golden eagle.
