In Pomorie there are enough of beaches to suit all tastes. Mostly they are sandy, with dark, sometimes almost black healing sand. Basically, beaches are well equipped, but however, you can find wild or even nudist beaches.
Some of the beaches are located behind hotels, but everyone can attend their territory. They are always clean, and there are sunshades and sun loungers for rent.
Especially, I would like to mention a beach on a spit, where perfectly match the amazing nature, the crystal clear sea water and the almost complete lack of tourists. Nearby there is Lake Pomorie with its healing mud and unique bird sanctuary.
By the way, at some beaches of Pomorie sometimes there are a lot of tourists, but not always. More about this will be discussed later in this article.

Reinforced concrete beaches in Pomorie
On the territory of Pomorie can also be seen reinforced concrete platforms, where tourists like to relax. There are many such platforms along the embankment, that connects the old and the new parts of the city. This is ideal for those who prefer a small number of people, and who indifferent to beach comforts.
There is always clean sea water and very nice views. The bottom is mostly sandy, sometimes you can see stones. A significant disadvantage may be not very convenient descent into the water – by special small stairs located right there.
A wild beach
As in any resort of Bulgaria, in Pomorie you can also find a wild beach. It is located at the junction of the mainland and the peninsula. The beach area is quite small, but a free place can always be found. Mainlt, there prefer to have rest locals, because nearby there is a sleeping area of Pomorie.
The sea near the shores of the beach is clean, but sometimes there are algae. Because the beach is wild, the characteristic odor of iodine is present almost constantly.
A beach on the spit
The purest and, probably, the most secluded beach in Pomorie is located in the outskirts of the city. At this beach you will not find comfortable sun loungers and sunshades, there are no cabins for changing clothes or WC. Instead, you are guaranteed a quiet and a relaxing rest.
Those who will not be lazy to walk several kilometers along the coast of the sea, will see a magnificent picture: a dark sand, a crystal clear water, an endless blue sky and almost absolute lack of tourists.
