Ten beaches on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast are offering free umbrellas and loungers this summer, according to the Ministry of Tourism.
Some of them are given on concession, and others – for rent, monitor reports. As in the previous summer, the agreement with the concessionaires and tenants provides for the state to completely simplify the charges to the state and, in return, to offer the shade and other amenities completely free of charge. In addition, the following applies: The owners can choose the percentage by which they cut their payments to the state, but must lower the prices by the corresponding percentage.
With free shade, the beaches Varna – Bunite, Burgas – north and center, Obzop motel, Primorsko – central, camping “Nestinarka”, Aheloy, Atanacovska kosa, Tsarevo are in the center.
Many of the other beaches have announced prices without discounts. But negotiations with the state are still ongoing and it is possible that the state will also lower prices from July.
However, this does not apply to Sunny Beach, where last summer the price for a set of two umbrellas and a deck chair was reduced to BGN 12, but this summer it is BGN 15. The prices in the area are not low either. On St. Vlas, on the central beach, an umbrella costs BGN 10 and a deck chair costs BGN 8.
On the beach in Ravda, an umbrella and a deck chair costs BGN 8. In Pomorie the prices for both an umbrella and a deck chair are around BGN 5. There are other beaches with relatively high prices. The price for the “Golden Fish” is BGN 10, for a deck chair you pay another 10. The prices are the same on the “Lozenets” beach. Ha “St. Constantine and Helena” costs between 4 and 5 levs. “Albena” beach keeps the prices from last year, or 1 BGN for an umbrella and a deck chair.
Prices vary on the southernmost beaches. On Silistar, for example, the parasol and deck chair cost BGN 5 each. At Butamyata beach the prices are BGN 5.50 each.
Prices also differ in the Tsarevo region. If the umbrellas and loungers on the central beach and on the Popski beach are free, they cost BGN 3.50 each on Arapya. In Lozenets the prices are only BGN 10 on the central beach, otherwise BGN 6 on the “Oasis” campsite and BGN 2 on the small beach in Lozenets – 2 leva.
