In winter it's pin-drop quiet, but the village is transformed each summer when artists and alternative lifestylers from Sofia camp on the fields above the beach. The more established have their own stick shelters that they repair each year.
Varvara is an old fishing village that has been rapidly turning into a tourist destination for the last 10 years. In mid 19-th century the place was completely deserted. The only edifice here was a small chapel named after Saint Varvara, where worshippers from the neighbouring villages of Tzarevo, Ahtopol, Kosti and Brodilovo came to pray.
Just 3 km to the south are the numerous restaurants of Ahtopol, and yet Varvara is an excellent choice for those, who enjoy cooking their own meal – a fresh fish catch may be bought from almost any house in the village, and the local people will offer an amazing assortment of fresh fruit and vegetables.
The village is one of the stops of the regular bus line connecting Bourgas to Sinemorets, and stopping on the way in Sozopol, Kiten, Tzarevo, Ahtopol. The nearest airport is about 75 km to the north, in Bourgas, and 90 km to the south (Korlu, Turkey). A new airstrip for light aircraft is being built in Primorsko, some 40 km to the north.
