Picturesque bays, natural golden dunes, rocky headlands and spacious sandy beaches, gently washed by a warm and tranquil sea are the hallmark of Bulgaria’s southern Black Sea coast. And nowhere is this more evident than along the stunning stretch of coastline linking Sunny Beach, which is generally regarded as Bulgaria’s most popular beach resort, with the holiday villages of Elenite and Sveti Vlas to the north and Nessebar and Aheloy to the south. Sitting snugly in the centre of this beautiful area and right alongside the ancient settlement of Nessebar, Ravda lies just 16km from Burgas airport and 6km from the main resort of Sunny Beach.
The first tourist developments started here in 1958 and, today, visitors can enjoy a wide and varied selection of holiday options ranging from small family apartments to luxury hotel complexes. With its two sweeping, sandy bays separated by the old fishing pier, its tree-lined streets bustling with café-bars, restaurants, amusement arcades and souvenir shops, its narrow, twisting alleyways meandering down to the beach and, above all, its heady Mediterranean ambience, Ravda offers its visitors an exciting, invigorating but totally relaxed holiday experience - which perhaps explains the local folklore claim that everybody who visits Ravda will one day return …
One of the most attractive features of Ravda is its recreational amenities. Together with sunbathing and relaxing on the beautiful sandy beaches, there are fun activities throughout the resort for the whole family. The more active will find countless ways of enjoying the sun and the sea … diving in the crystal-clear waters, windsurfing in the light breezes, sailing along the rugged coastline … from early morning to starlit evening, every day will offer a special experience.
And if all-night bars, throbbing discotheques and wild beach parties are more to your taste, then Sunny Beach is only a few minutes away …
Already well established as an extremely popular family resort, Ravda is not resting on its laurels. In line with the continuing expansion of the whole area, the local development plan includes: a host of new apartment blocks and small hotels linking Ravda with its bigger sister, Nessebar … a number of major developments such as the 5-star Grand Sirena complex … the new Aqua-Park planned for completion during the 2005 season … and at least two (possibly four) 18-hole golf courses within easy reach. Those with the vision to see beyond the current development phase will find the truly unique and unforgettable experience that is Ravda.
