Averages for Sunny Beach in January
January is the coldest month of the year in Sunny Beach and as such tends to be dead quiet around the resort.
Daytime temperatures only manage to reach a high of 6°C (43°F) and can fall to a bitterly cold -1°C (30°F) in the evenings.
However, it is unlikely that you will be venturing very far in the evenings as most of the entertainment venues around Sunny Beach are closed during the winter months.
It can also be fairly wet at this time of year, so appropriate clothing is essential. Hats, gloves and scarves should be worn with waterproof jackets to stave off the cold.
If you do not enjoy the intense heat or large crowds of the high summer, then this is a great time of year to visit.
The cooler temperatures mean that many people come at this time of year to experience the scenery of the area.
Hiking and cycling are popular activities in the hills outside of the resort. And just because you cannot spend your days lounging on the beach doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the sea anyway – boat tours are available all year round and this is a great way to see more of Bulgaria’s beautiful coast line.
You can also head south to Nesebar. This picturesque town dates back to ancient Greek times and is a UNESCO world heritage site. You can spend a lot of time exploring the ancient ruins and grand churches of the town.
Accommodation will be cheaper at this time of year, although there is less choice available.
Budget holiday makers can go for a self catering apartment at complexes such as the Palazzo Apartments or Dunes Village, whereas big spenders can check in to the five star Majestic Hotel and Residence.
