If you are looking for a quieter and smaller resort with fine golden sand, a clean gradual entry into the sea – Sveti Vlas is the right choice. At first glance, this town looks very smooth, peaceful, surrounded by greenery and the Stará Planina mountains. In the resort you will find many luxury hotel complexes and the beautiful surrounding nature will surely enchant you.

Nevertheless, there is everything you need from the resort – shops, services, bakeries and great restaurants.
The beaches here are simply beautiful, quiet with plenty of sun loungers and relaxation areas. You can also use the beach volleyball court, or play frisbee, there is plenty of space everywhere.

Here you will find a unique combination of clean mountain air, sea climate and beautiful nature.
We also draw attention to the largest yacht port Marina Dinevi, which has a capacity of up to 300 yachts. There is definitely something to look at during the walks. The entire port is lined with luxury shops and great restaurants offering fresh seafood. At the same time, you can take advantage of the rich offer of boat trips and visit the area, take a water taxi to the historic town of Nessebar, ride on attractions – bananas, drive on a Speed Boat, or discover other water attractions.
At the current site of Sveti Vlas was originally a fishing village, which was founded in the 2nd century by the Greek population and its original name was Larissa. The name Sveti Vlas was not used until the 14th century. The city was predominantly Greek until the 20th century, when most local Greeks emigrated back to Greece.
The resort is located only 5 km from the busy largest resort Sunny Beach and 35 km from Burgas Airport. Well-connected public transport will ensure a seamless connection, and a local bus will take you to Sunny Beach in 15-20 minutes. We recommend visiting this resort if you want to do big shopping, or you want a busy bar or disco.
If you are looking for a more convenient transportation from Burgas Airport to Sveti Vlas – Bulgarian taxi services will come directly to the airport for you and you will be in your apartment or hotel in 30 minutes. The price of taxi services is around 35 €.
