What's the Weather Like in Sunny Beach in January

The first month of the year doesn't particularly draw a large crowd to Sunny Beach, purely because this is certainly outside of tourist season, however that doesn't mean that visiting isn't a great idea. The cooler temperatures mean it's much easier to explore the region and countryside around the resort in relative comfort.

Temperature

If you visit Sunny Beach in January you will be needing a jacket, as this is the coldest month of the year, with an average temperature of 3°C, reaching a high of 6°C, and even falling as low as -1°C on the coldest nights during the month.

Rain

Despite that, rainfall isn't markedly high during this time of year, as rain is possible at any time in Sunny Beach; January on average experiences 41mm of rain during the month, affecting around 6 days on average. Downpours may be heavy, but will almost always leave behind clear blue skies.

Sunshine 

On average you can expect around 5 hours of sun per day, which is still very pleasant compared to other parts of the world during the winter season (December - February).

Sea Temperature

Swimming in the sea isn't that advisable at this time, as the Black Sea only reaches an average of 10°C, so perhaps it's best to stick to your hotel swimming pool!

Hotels for Sunny Beach in January

Despite the quieter month of January, there are still many hotels open in Sunny Beach, and many cater for the New Year's celebrations. 

Hotel L&B

Hotel L & B is a great choice, very close to the beach and in a central position for the resort's main amenities. A large swimming pool and hotel restaurant make your stay more comfortable, in a relaxing atmosphere.

Barcelo Royal Beach Hotel

Alternatively, Barcelo Royal Beach Hotel is a five star option with plenty of sparkle, right on the beach front, offering many different board types, including all inclusive, which is useful during the quieter time of the year.

Park Continental Hotel

Park Continental Hotel is also another good choice, a little out of the main resort centre, but easily accessible; there is a mini train which stops outside the hotel, and is a fun way to get out and about.

Beaches for January for Sunny Beach

Cacao Beach

You probably won't be sunbathing and swimming during January in Sunny Beach, but you can enjoy the wilderness of a winter landscape to the max. Sunny Beach's main stretch of sand is called Cacao Beach, and during the summer months it is teeming with life, however during the winter months it is a place of solace, perfect for a winter walk.

Restaurants and Bars for Sunny Beach in January

Park Continental Hotel

The downside of visiting Sunny Beach out of season is that there isn't as many bars and restaurants open during this time, compared to the height of summer. That doesn't mean there aren't any however, and many of these are situated in the hotels which remain open all year around. Park Continental Hotel offers several dining options, including the rather fantastic Restaurant "Orient", which is a must try.

If you head out into the resort itself you will find a few local restaurants open, and this is the ideal time to try something a little more authentic and traditional. Bulgarian food on the whole is hearty and ideal for this time of year when the temperatures are a little cooler.

Things to Do in Sunny Beach in January

The first month of the year brings New Year celebrations to Sunny Beach, and although you won't find crowds at this time, you will find locals enjoying their own celebrations in and around the resort. Nearby Bourgas will have more in the way of life at this time, and is only a short bus ride away from Sunny Beach itself.

Mall Galleria Burgas

Bourgas is certainly worth an exploration, and is the fourth largest city in the country. It's a good time to head here, especially whilst the temperatures are cooler, with entertainment options on offer, such as Platinum Casino for a little flutter, and shopping malls to grab some bargains. Mall Galleria Burgas is a particularly popular place to head for a spot of retail therapy.

Nesebar Village

A little closer to resort itself is Nesebar Village, and for anyone into history and architecture, this is the place to go. The lower temperatures make for the perfect time to explore the ancient and historic region, with a chilled-out and romantic feel to the place. The old town is connected to the mainland by a narrow walkway and you will find maze-like cobblestone lanes, tiny squares, and old, characteristic buildings to explore. This area certainly draws the crowds during the peak summer months, so exploring whilst it's quieter is a great idea.
