April

Overview

The noticeable difference in the weather in Sunny Beach as April hits is that rain increases a little, although not too much towards the wet end of the scale, with an average of around 54mm throughout the month, affecting 8 days overall. Simply throw an umbrella in your bag as you get out to explore Sunny Beach during this time and you should be fine.

The great news is that temperatures are also beginning to creep up, with an average of 12°C at this time, hitting a high of 16°C – very pleasant indeed, with a low of only 7°C, showing a marked improvement on previous months.

Officially in the spring category of weather, Sunny Beach shows some signs of tourist life during April, and cheaper holiday deals are very possible at this time. Bars and restaurants begin to open up, and beach life slowly starts to emerge as the water temperature warms up slightly, however still at a chilly 11°C during April. Sunshine hours are beginning to shoot up, with an average of 9 bright hours per day, meaning getting out and about is a great idea, and a tan is certainly a possibility.

Where to stay

Whether you decide to go self-catering or you go for something a little more holiday traditional, such as half board, full board, or all-inclusive, is a totally individual decision. Sunny Beach has plentiful options that tick all those boxes, but if you are looking for a self-catering route, with a comfortable, furnished apartment, then Marack 1 & 2 Apartments are for you. These offer a large children’s play area, a large pool, and are set within a picturesque green area of the resort, just 10 minutes away from the main beach.

If you prefer to have all your whims catered for, Barcelo Royal Beach Hotel is the way to go. This large hotel, set right on the beach front, screams luxury with its five star tag. The large free-form pool is a good option during the cooler months, as an alternative to the still rather chilly sea, and a full entertainment programme means your evenings are sorted.

What to do

Warmer temperatures and increasingly open facilities mean fun is certainly to be had during April in Sunny Beach! You can find some cheap deals at this time of year, which is always a bonus, especially if you are travelling with children as a family. There are some great fun activities to be enjoyed in Sunny Beach if this is the kind of holiday you’re after, including Sunny Beach Luna Park, a large amusement park for all ages, which offers rides and fun to be enjoyed. April is a particularly good time to head here, to avoid large queues for rides.

Alternatively, grab some fresh air and a little adrenaline by heading to Sunny Beach Karting Track, a fun few hours the kids will love, as well as the big kids too!

We’ve talked a lot about avoiding crowds and hot temperatures, and if you’re wanting to explore historic ruins and places of interest then April means you should be heading over to Nessebar Village. Here you will find history in front of your eyes, with narrow cobbled streets, old buildings, plenty of architecture to check out, and a really picturesque scene for your camera lens. There are a couple of beaches around here too, so perhaps take your towel with you just in case you decide to go for a dip.

Hit the beach

Pleasantly warm temperatures, yet not too hot, mean the perfect excuse to explore and the same can be said when looking for a new beach to spend a few hours. Just over an hour’s drive away from Sunny Beach you will find the unspoilt Shkorpilovtsi Beach, just south of Varna.

This is a popular spot during the height of summer, but when the quieter months are in place you will find a wild, unspoilt, and very clean destination for your day’s beach entertainment.

Eating & drinking out

April also means more in the way of choice for night-time activities, and you will find bars and restaurants are starting to open up for the summer season. Sunny Beach is famed for its bright and sometimes raucous night-life, and if you are wanting to party until the sun comes up then you’re more than catered for. On the other hand however, if you want to relax, this is also there for you.

Bubbles Beach Bar is a fun night out if you’re wanting to dance and drink cocktails, and although it won’t be that busy in April this mean you will simply have more room! This is also a great place for families during the day and early evenings. Alternatively, head to Hawaii Restaurant and Bar Sunny Beach. This restaurant has a reputation for quality and is a very popular choice amongst those who return time and time again to the resort.
