Take A Bus
Buses to Bourgas go from Sunny Beach bus station very frequently (about every 20 minutes) from very early in the morning (6.30 am-ish until close to midnight) and it only costs 7 leva each way (2014 price). The last stop into Bourgas is at the bus station which is right by the entrance to the port.
Or Go By Taxi
You may have lots of shopping to do and don’t want to carry it back on the bus, or you just fancy the personal touch. If so, any of the taxi drivers will take you to Bourgas and bring you back later if you wish. As usual, always get a price before you go (expect to pay about 60 leva). You could always negotiate the round trip – he’ll even take you to specific shops and wait around for you when you want to go back. It’s very useful if you want to say, get some bits and pieces for your apartment as you can leave them in the taxi while you continue your day (go for a spot of lunch for instance).
There are so many shops in Bourgas you’ll be spoilt for choice. Or just go for some sightseeing. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels to go to. When we last visited in September 2014 there was a great deal of building work being carried out at the centre of the city but it was difficult to tell what was actually being done. There’s also a large park area that you can walk along that runs along the length of the coast.
Tributes To The War
If you want to buy some perfume but not pay full price for the very well known brands, there are several shops in Bourgas where you can have the fragrance at a fraction of the cost. You tell the Assistant the name of the fragrance you want and she will mix the essence with some rose water to produce the exact copy of the perfume.
