Varna, Bulgaria’s sea capital is also the gateway to the Black Sea region. Many travellers fly straight to Varna and then head to to various resorts and towns along the coast like Balchik, Golden Sands & Albena. Golf in Varna and around is mostly resort-golf in nature. Balchik is now a very popular golfing hub owing to its proximity to the three world-class golf resorts of Black Sea Rama, Thracian Cliffs and Lighthouse Golf Resort, the first two designed by Gary Player and the third an Ian Woosnam gem.

The resorts themselves are self-contained and offer the gamut of holiday experiences from private beaches, water sports, spas and casinos. If you can tear yourself away from the exceptional golf and the indulgent resorts that is typical of golf in Varna, the buzzing city life is worth a visit. A day trip to Nesebar, a UNESCO heritage site and home to medieval churches and history is also a must-see.
