Holidays to St Constantine and Helena whip up lengthy stretches of sand and aqua-blue water, all backed by a swathe of cypress and fig trees.
This part of Bulgaria’s packed with a mix of sandy beaches backed by huge trees, rugged cliff edges, and green-decked hills, so there’s no shortage of landscape to look at. Gaze along the coastline however, and you’ll spot something slightly unusual. A huge 13th-century sailing ship is perched on a cliff overlooking the town, and its home to a two-storey seafood restaurant.
Heaps of history
St Constantine and Helena’s a compact place, but that’s not stopped it racking up the numbers, history-wise. For starters, there’s the Royal Summer Palace – AKA Euxinograd – a 19th-century mansion that’s thought to be one of Bulgaria’s best architectural offerings It's surrounded by vineyards, and the gardens are home to over 300 different plant varieties, too.
Turn up the heat
This slice of seaside's home to a number of mineral-rich hot springs, and there are balneology complexes and pools you can visit to soak up a healthy hit. At the main thermal baths, you’ll find a 36°C pool – it softens the skin and relieves aching joints.
