Pomorie is situated on a rocky peninsula, and was originally built in 1902, the surroundings are breathtaking and make for a beautiful setting and an attractive place to take a holiday. Pomorie is definitely a place to be visited even if you decide not to stay here, there is a lake in Pomorie and the mud surrounding the resort, discovered in the 4th century BC, has been used in natural medicine, it is said the minerals in the mud help with bone and muscular disorders, and also sciatica, lumbago, hernias and many other ailments, many people come here for the day just to experience this natural wonder of Bulgaria.

The beaches in Pomorie are wonderful, with soft golden sand and shallow, crystal clear waters make an ideal place to spend you days. The main beach has a small selection of water sports, however larger resorts such as Nessebar and Sunny Beach have a much larger selection and can easily be reached by local buses or very cheap taxis. Its and excellent destination for families too, with the shallow waters being a perfectly safe place for children to play. There are a handful of beach side cafés and snack bars, a perfect place to escape the midday sunshine.

Pomorie is fairly quiet and laid back, but there are a good selection of places to eat out, most of the offering traditional Bulgarian food, produced locally and lovingly prepared for you. All washed down with local wines and beers, and some may even put on a floor show of traditional dance. There are a few cafés and snack bars too, and of course livelier Sunny Beach is only 10 minutes in a taxi, so a much bigger choice is available easily to you too. There are a few bars and pubs, but on the whole it is laid back and relaxed. Nessebar is only 10 minutes by taxi too, so you always have options for a change of scenery.

Pomorie is a great location as a base to explore this beautiful area of Bulgaria. There are many sights and sounds to be had without having to travel for hours and hours. Day trips to the neighbouring resort of Sozopol are always a popular trip, with the famous wooden houses and spectacular scenery, and the beautiful Ropo tamo River. The blue mountains also offer some spectacular sights or take a river cruise down the Blue Danube. You can take a Jeep safari and travel up through the mountains and through some lovely little villages, meet the locals and generally be enthralled by their beautiful country. Many people have enjoyed a day trip to the capital city of Turkey, Istanbul or up to Bulgaria’s capital Sofia with its many historical sights and some amazingly cheap designer shops and boutiques.

Pomorie really is a beautiful destination and we wont be surprised if you book up again for next year!!!
