Ruslaka Beach is set on the Black Sea between the city of Varna and the border with Romania. A small beach in an area dominated by coastal cliffs, it has crystal clear waters known to be home to dolphins. Its name comes from the Bulgarian word for mermaid. It is predominantly made up of a light coloured sand, mixed with small pebbles.

A haven since Roman times, it is surrounded by oak forest and forms part of a nature reserve. Not far away you’ll find a thermal baths, while its resort has daily activities for all the family, including access to tennis courts, canoes, kayaks and horse-riding sessions.

Ruslaka Beach is a particularly popular destination with German and French tourists. Despite this, it is a tranquil destination and doesn’t see huge numbers of people using it. Shade is provided by the rocks and a line of attractive thatched umbrellas while the shallows remain a favourite way to cool off.
