Primorsko is famous for its graceful arcing ten-kilometer sandy beach, the longest and prettiest on the coast.
Location: The town of Primorsko is relatively small as it has population of about 2,500 people. 52km south of Bourgas, the town lies on a cape jutting out between the Stamopolo Bay and the Dyavolski (Devil's) Bay. The town has two beaches, the Northern and the Southern ones. The former is more open and offers rough sea, which makes it treasured by surfers, while the latter is smaller and calmer, and hence preferred by families. Traditionally, the Southern Beach gets overcrowded during the top season, which makes holidaymakers sunbathe at nearby beaches, such as the one of the International Youth Centre. The youth centre is situated only 1-2 km to the south of the town and represents a typical holiday city for young people with plenty of villas, bungalows, hotels, bars, discos, and various sports grounds. The area is forested with deciduous trees and vegetation and is arranged as a cultivated park in an old oak wood. The centre was built in socialist times in a bid to promote interaction among youngsters from Soviet Bloc countries.
The Ottoman-time village of Chenger (later known as Kyupria) grew into a modern resort only after the Liberation in the second half of the 19th century.
Places of Interest
The most popular nearby place is the river of Ropotamo, famous for the thick ('Longoz') forest, otherwise typical for tropical climates, along its banks. The marsh of Arkutino also falls within the boundaries of the natural reserve. Besides its attractive rocky formations, the right-hand bank of the river also features one of the largest natural reserves of Water Pelin - a rare and treasured herb - in the country. Unfortunately, the commercialisation of the Black Sea coast in the last few years is widely fuelling concerns about the future of the flora and fauna of the natural reserve.
Besides the plenty of large and smaller hotels, companies' rest homes and private lodgings in the town, one can find relatively cheap accommodation in the youth centre, or alternatively, in the neighbouring Iglika, Perla or Romantica campsites. The town has grown immensely in the past few years and is currently one of the most popular Black Sea resorts among foreign and Bulgarian tourists, due to its relatively moderate prices and good infrastructure.
The climate is miled to subtropical with very low rainfall in the summer. The avarage tempreture in July 27C, but often reaching 30-33C.
