“Thermal bath experience in Sv. Konstantin”
On a recent trip to Varna, I wanted to go swimming or get some beach time, but that proved difficult as I was traveling alone and had no safe location to keep my valuables. My hotel in Varna (Art Hotel) was great but no pool. On a day trip to Sv. Konstantin (which you can reach with the public bus for less than 1 lev) I stumbled upon the "Mineral Pool", which was a thermal bath complex situated right along the beach. Entry was only 4 lev, but I went for the "V.I.P. Special", which included a lounge chair, chair cover, umbrella, entry to the pool, and a locker for your valuables, for only 12 lev (about $10). Since the complex is right on the beach, you can select a lounge chair on the private beach. (No swimming at that beach, though.) There is a bar and restaurant inside the complex as well. As well as a large cage of pigeons(?).
The pool is fed by natural thermal springs, so that the water is warm (not a big plus in the summer!) and a bit stinky due to the various minerals. However, it is supposed to be medicinally beneficial. It's not the sparkling turquoise pool you might be looking for in the summer, but the complex is quite nice, if a bit dated, and perfect for those not staying in the huge, all-inclusive resorts. It was a nice, relaxing afternoon.
I don't know if they have an official address; to find the place, go to the Sv. Konstantin and Sv. Elena monastery. From the church, go straight toward the beach, and you will pass a children's recreation area and a fish restaurant, then the mineral pool is right there near the beach.
