"Sunny Beach back in history"
In medieval times, the bay situated between Cape Emine and Nessebur had two large fresh water wells; residents earned a living by selling drinking water to Nessebar, which had none of its own. This area is now known as Sunny Beach. Started in 1958 and the largest of the country's beach resorts. Today, the wide, six-kilometer-long beach is generally regarded as the best on the coast with 6 km sand line and water temperature between 22 and 28 degrees .

Sunny Beach through the season
(Important to know when planning your holiday) :
May - In may construction going on at some places that need to be finished for the season. The resort is slowly waking up from hibernation. Bars and restaurants are opening. Still Quet. Beach not set yet with parasols and sunbeds. Sea is crystal clear but cold for swimming.
June - Everything working , resort not too crowded.
July and August - Welcome to the "ALCOHOL TOURISM METROPOLE"
Turning more and more into a youth preferred resort , especially in july and august, for its reputation of cheap alcohol and 24hrs drinking parties. What happens is basically this : drunken hoards of young kids stroll through the central streets and the hotels - they could be on organized disco tour for example - which makes them scream like they're going on a football game,shouting and singing in all the languages all night long ,knocking on wrong room doors , throwing up everywhere, drinking more etc etc..... if this is not your type of party , avoid at any price "Lazur"disco ,"Mamacitas" the beach bars in the center around "Amigo" bar, and all the hotels with central location. Or alternatively bring couple of pairs of earplugs.
"Mania" club is mainly a place for Bulgarians.So is "Tiffany" where you go to be seen , Bedroom and Cacao Beach.
September - Has still everything open but the crowds of druken kids have gone home for school. Sea water is still warm. Best time for holiday!!!
October - Sunny Beach is similar to a Ghost Town- very few hotels are still operating and the feeling of abandon is floating in the air. Beach Bars are wrapped in planks and plastic foil to survive the harsh winter winds. All streets are deserted and night lights are off. It's pure joy if you meet one or two people walking around.
SO , WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE / CIRCUS :) HOPE YOU"LL HAVE FUN...
USE YOUR BRAIN , STAY ALERT AND YOU'LL LOVE IT :)

This was a great tip. Ate in Djannis three nights and Condor once. Each night was really good. Don't be put off by having to queue to get in, the short wait is well worth it. You can tell how good it is by the number of locals who use them.
