Balchik is at its busiest during the summer period that runs from Spring until Autumn and due to the smaller size of its beaches, can sometimes get a bit overcrowded. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s throughout these summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring as temperatures start to drop-off in the winter months. There isn’t much to do in the winter in Albena though so a trip during the summer or perhaps in the Autumn when the crowds have died down is what we recommend.
Without a doubt one of the best things to do in Balchik is visit its famous Botanical Garden. It is one of the largest and most impressive in the whole of Bulgaria with hundreds of flower alleys, roses, cacti and even some waterfalls to feast your eyes upon. Situated right next door is the Balchik Palace. This place is a great hit with families and it has lush gardens to explore, a rich history to learn about and even a stone throne that you can sit on for yourself!
The accommodation options in Balchik are fairly mixed, with some great budget options and a few all inclusive luxurious choices sprinkled in there too. Self-catered is by far the most popular choice but there are some places that give you a variety of dining options. In terms of cuisine in the area, there are some incredible local, authentic Bulgarian dishes to try out, including Ovcharska which consists of yellow cheese, fresh vegetables, boiled egg and ham.
