 The resort of Zlatni Pyasutsi (Golden Sands) is the largest one on the northern Black Sea coast (more than 1800 hectares). It is situated 18 km north-east of Varna, 488 km east of Sofia; it is bounded on the north by Kranevo and on the south by Chaika Villa Area, and merges with the Konstantin and Elena Resort. Above the resort is the Frengen plateau of limestone structure, which is liable to landslide and erosion. The area is famous for the purest sand on the Black Sea coast. In Turkish times it was called Ouzounkoum – the long sands.

The resort is smothered in lush vegetation and with the numerous bushes and trees it resembles a real park. The mineral water running out of several big pipes onto the beach, as well as the marvellous deciduous wood bordering the Frangen Plateau turn Zlatni Pyasutsi into one of the pearls of the Bulgarian coast. The construction works commenced back around the year of 1950, and is still going on. Most of the alleys are asphalt-covered, the shore is paralleled by small streets, nice cosy hotels with picturesque parks around them, steps leading to small bays on both sides of the resort – favourite corners for tourists and holiday-makers in search for solitude.

The constant temperature of about 27°C and the microclimate of Zlatni Pyasutsi throughout the season make it a wonderful place for having a rest and fun. There is a casino, many bars, mini-golf playground, horse-carriages and attractive carts, water slides, good conditions and equipment for practising all kinds of water sports with the assistance of licensed coaches.
