Windsurf in Bulgaria
The Bulgarian part of the Black sea is not very popular as a windsurfing destination as the sea is usually calm with no high tides. However there are few sites that are turning into windsurfing sites at certain periods of the year. This sport is getting even more popular in Bulgaria via the several windsurfing competitions throughout the year.
Generally the best time for windsurfing in Bulgaria is from early spring till late autumn. During the hot summer
months the wind is stronger late in the afternoon. However September is considered to be more suitable for high speed lovers as the wind is better.
Almost every major holiday resort along the Bulgarian coastline has at least one surfing club, which can offer you equipment and even a few tips if you are beginner. Sunny Beach, Albena, Golden sands and Sozopol are definitely sites which worth to be visited if you want to combine the sport with great nightlife and comfortable high class hotels.
Tourists who are tempted by the untouched and still virgin nature should definitely go further south.
The vicinity of Sinemorets offers a few really magnificent sites suitable for windsurfing. Six kilometers south of the village is Silistar- bay and cape. The water is crystal clear and the view is unforgettable. Cape Silistar is in the protected area of the natural sightseeing Dokuzak.
North of Sinemorets is the so called Northern Beach of the village which will just leave you breathless. It is a picturesque sandy stripe right between the quiet flow of Veleka River and the Black sea tides.
Further north just next to Tsarevo is camping Arapia
famous for its perfect conditions for windsurf. The camping offers basic facilities for those who wish to open a tent or bring their own caravan. Recently a new four star hotel was build nearby for tourists who don’t want to miss the comfort. However there is no asphalt road to the coast. People reach it after some 5 kilometers of black road.
Camp sites Smokini, Zlatna Ribka and Gradina are situated in the vicinity of Sozopol and are offering wonderful conditions for windsurf lovers.
