Sunny Beach Weather March Averages, Bulgaria
What's the Weather Like in Sunny Beach in March
Spring has almost sprung in Sunny Beach as March approaches, and this means temperatures are beginning to creep up a little as the month progresses. Again, tourist season has not yet begun, and Sunny Beach has a more residential/local feel about it, which is great for immersing yourself in Bulgarian culture and exploring the region.
You can expect an average March temperature of around 7°C, reaching a pleasant high of 11°C on the warmer days, and hitting a low of around 3°C during the chilly evenings.
Rainfall during March doesn't show a particularly different pattern to any other time of the season, or indeed the year, as you can expect an average of 40mm throughout the month, which affects around 7 days. As with most months in Sunny Beach, any downpour is likely to be short-lived, and if torrential it will pass relatively uneventfully, leaving behind blue skies.
On the other side of the scale, sun hours are creeping up, with an average of 7 hours per day in March, meaning summer is just around the corner.
Hotels for Sunny Beach in March
Galeon Apart Complex
A modern apartment complex is a great way to feel right at home whilst you're visiting Sunny Beach in the quieter, cooler months. Galeon Apart Complex is the perfect choice of a home away from home, very close to the beach, with all the mod cons you need from a comfortable holiday base.
Equally as comfortable, yet very upmarket, Eden Park is one of the most prestigious places to stay in the area, both as a holiday let and a residential area. These villas are a little out of the main resort, just 2km away, but have everything you could need without venturing too far.
New Line Village
If you're looking for something a little more budget-conscious then New Line Village is a self-catering option you could look into, featuring all modern amenities for a lower price tag.
Beaches for March for Sunny Beach
Bulgaria's Black Sea Coast has a fantastic, reliable bus service, which means heading away from the resort when you feel like exploring is easy. Just two hours away you will find the beautiful and very calm Albena Beach.
Of course, most beaches during these months are quiet, but this is a slice of serenity, away from everything and extremely relaxing. Wide and fine-grained sand will greet you, with a gentle breeze ever present. There are good underwater fishing opportunities here during season, and this is also possible in March.
Restaurants and Bars for Sunny Beach in March
If you're staying in the Chaika Resort then you are spoilt for choice when it comes to your evening's entertainment and dining options, as there are several to choose from, including the Metropol Restaurant, Club Mystic, and Chaika Restaurant to name just a few.
Equally, any hotel which is open at this time of year will have several options on-site to counteract the lack of a huge selection out on the street during the off-season period in Sunny Beach.
Things to Do in Sunny Beach in March
March sees the calm before the storm, as next month the tourists begin to arrive in dribs and drabs; this makes March the ideal time to enjoy rest and relaxation, and there is no better way than by heading to a spa for a few treatments and a little 'me' time.
The large hotels will all have spa facilities, some larger than others, however Barcelo Royal Beach Hotel and Chaika Beach Hotel all have particularly large facilities to enjoy total peace and tranquillity during these quieter months.
Of course, getting out and about around Sunny Beach is also to be advised, and this is a great time to hire a car and explore the surrounding countryside. The roads around resort are well marked and safe, and provided you have a valid driving licence you are able to head off and enjoy the Black Sea Coast in all its glory.
History lovers will want to head to the charming town of Sozopol, located near Burgas and very similar in style to the nearby Nesebar. You'll find characterful wooden houses, cobblestoned alleyways and a quaint fishing harbour, all of which are easy to explore thanks to a lack of crowds at this time of year.
The bustling coastal city of Varna is only a short journey away from Sunny Beach and has much to offer in the way of tourist attractions, meaning you could easily spend a day here. One recommendation is the magnificent Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, which never fails to impress visitors with its ornate golden domes and intricate decorations.
