I want to visit Balchik in August so I am curious to find out as much information as I can get from you. Tell me about your favorite places in Balchik, restaurants, food, transportation to other cities near the sea, etc. Thank you!
I've only had a day trip there but I have a useful page here on VT about the town - [original VT link] If you check out my tips and travelogues you'll find the highlights of my day, including transportation to/from Varna.
You can also type Balchik into the destinations search box at the top right of this page and have a look at other members pages.
It's a nice little fishing village and well worth a visit.
As always John has compete imformation,really good job:)
My tips would be for places out of Balchik.As you're going to spend some time in that region,a must see is Kaliakra cape([original VT link] - things to do,N 3). It is only 30km far from Balchik but I'm not sure if there is direct bus. If not,you can always change in Kavarna or I'm sure there would be half day trips to there.
Other places you can visit around are again to the north - villages Tiulenovo,Kamen briag,Krapec or Ruslaka camp - beautiful nature,cliffs,dolphines,caves,etc.
Albena is a famous resort south of Balchik and three is a lovely little forest around it combined with the sea.It is only 13 km far from Balchik and the beach is magnifient.
Use John't trasnport tips and you'll get also information at the bus station.
