The resort of Elenite has always been a firm favourite with our clients. The beach around Elenite is one of the sunniest, most picturesque on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. Elenite resort is home to panoramas beyond your exotic dreams: transparent water with rays of sunshine dancing on its surface, multi-coloured reflections, lush greenery, all surrounded by mountains rising from the sea. The summer resort is ideally situated in a quiet, private bay with all the amenities you would expect in a holiday centre. The attractive beach and the excellent range of sports facilities make Elenite especially popular with families. There are also regular public buses available to take you to and from the well-known resort of Sunny Beach.
Take a deep breath the moment you arrive in Elenite, you will find yourself feeling instantaneously refreshed. Maybe it's the fresh puff of mountain wind that soars over the hills through this picturesque holiday resort town.
Elenite is located just ten kilometres from its big brother Sunny Beach, which draws many thousands of tourists in every year. However, the younger sibling has a number of unique advantages over the older. Firstly, you'll find fewer people here, making seclusion and isolation much more feasible if that's what you seek in a holiday. However, since plenty of tourists still visit, you'll have no shortage of people to socialise withn the evening.
All these aspects - beautiful surroundings, great beach, and stunning amenities - serve to make Elenite one of the most charming resorts in Bulgaria.
To eat and drink
Whether you want to try top Bulgarian cuisine or seek out something that you know the kids will eat, you will find it in Elenite. Hotels recommend a number of restaurants - notably the Talyana, which lies close to the Perla hotel right on the beach. It's a beautiful setting, and when you step inside you'll be of eating inside a fishing ship. Grilled and barbecue dishes feature prominently on the menu. The Sunshine Restaurant is also worth a visit, with excellent food and a well-designed menu.
Thanks to its status as a particular haven for tourists, Elenite is extremely well-connected to the surrounding towns and attractions, as well as to other transportation hubs. Regular shuttle buses depart from the local Burgas (Sarafovo) airport, for example, making it fairly easy to get to and from wherever you need to be. Rent-a-car options are also available for those who value their independence on the roads.
Things to do
As with any resort town on this stunning stretch of coastline, the beach is the main draw. However, efforts have been made throughout Elenite to ensure tourists have plenty to do, and it shows. The kids will particularly adore the water park Atlantida Aqua Park, which includes pools for adults as well. Families will also want to visit the mini-golf course, which provides hours of fun and some great family memories. Sport fanatics will find themselves well catered for with options for billiards, fitness, windsurfing, horse riding, and bowling - plenty of opportunities to get active. Horse riding along the beach at sundown is particularly encouraged.
Other water sports also provide a way of making the most of the sun, beach, and the deliciously warm sea, with specialised centres dotted along the coast. These are a great way to have fun with the family - why not take the kids to try something you've all never tried before and learn together?
When all else fails, lather up the sunscreen and head to the beach in search of a lounger and parasol. The kids are fine to play in the waters - which are generally calm, although it is obviously important to exercise reasonable caution in any situation.
In a nutshell
Elenite is a well-equipped little holiday village that does a better job of bringing the Bulgarian charm to proceedings than many other resorts. More natural architecture and fewer tourists help to create this atmosphere, as well as the stunning scenery of hills, mountains, and sea. Being blessed with a golden arc of sand probably helps too.
