Our plan was to take the bus between Burgas Bulgaria and Sunny Beach Bulgaria.
But we had a VERY hard time finding information about it.
During our affordable luxury time in Burgas Bulgaria we tried to book bus tickets online. But the various online bus ticket agencies we tried kept erroring out.
We couldn’t even find the bus schedule between Burgas and Sunny Beach anywhere online.
Frustrated, we asked a few locals about the bus. Did we need to buy bus tickets in advance? How often does the bus between Burgas and Sunny Beach run? What’s the bus schedule to and from Sunny Beach?
No one we asked knew anything about the bus from Burgas to Sunny Beach!
Finally we decided that we would just pack up, walk to the bus station in Burgas and figure out how to get to Sunny Beach there…or not.
Buuuuut….then it started raining.
So we thought about it some more.
We remembered that we like affordable luxury travel….which does not include walking in a downpour to the bus station for a bus that might or might not be available.
So we booked a car from Burgas to Sunny Beach for about $28 US.
Turns out that was a big waste of money.
Don’t make the same mistake we did!
