This beautiful expanse of fine golden sand stretches for 5 Km (3 miles) and is largely backed by the woodland of the Baltata National Reserve. Despite being on the Black Sea coast the water is anything but black here. Maybe the “crystal clear azure coast” would have been a more appropriate name as this beach is the proud owner of a Blue Flag award.
The Blue Flag award is not just a sign of clean water but also guarantees the range and quality of amenities on offer. In short this means Albena is a great family beach. As a major resort there are plenty of activities too; all the usual holiday water sports along with plenty to do on the beach front mini-golf courses, amusement parks, aqua-parks all joined together by a mini-train service. Yep, this is family central!
Even the beach plays ball with the sand gently sloping away so that even a hundred metres off the shore you can still reach the bottom.
And there’s another advantage to holidaying on the Black Sea; the water temperature reaches a balmy 25°C (75°F) in the summer but without all the dangerous, poisonous sea critters you’ll find in any tropical loactions.
