Municipality of Nessebar - overview
The municipality of Nessebar and the resorts on its territory are located in the southeastern part of Bulgaria. For this reason the temperatures here are always two or three degrees higher than in the resorts along the northern Black Sea coast.
The Municipality of Nessebar consists of 3 towns (Nessebar, Obzor, St. Vlas) and 11 villages (Ravda, Giliovtsa, Orizare, Tunkovo, Kosharitsa, Banya, Panitsovo, Rakovsko, Priseltsi, Emona, Koznitsa) form the administrative unit municipality of Nessebar, with total area of 423 sq.km. and population of about 21,000.
The resorts are spread along the Black Sea coast in beautiful bays with wide sandy beaches and crystal clear sea water. The beaches are covered in fine golden sand, and the sea bottom dips slightly, slowly increasing in depth, which makes it fun and safe for children. This is one reason why holiday villages in the region are among the most popular destinations for family tourism.
The municipality of Nessebar is a world tourist destination, offering over 250,000 beds.
Numerous foreign tourists arrive every summer via the many coach lines connecting the municipality with all corners of the country; the railway station, or the two large airports – Varna and Bourgas, respectively 130 km and 30 km away from Sunny Beach.
