the beach
Sep 2019
Golden Sands Beach is all sand bar the disgarded cig buts and bits of shell. the water is warm even when we were there mid September but a bit choppy. No lifeguard just a hoodie who blows a whistle if he thinks you are going out beyond what he considers a safe distance. The water is quite clear and clean and you can walk out a fair distance. However, be warned for the entire length, they all charge the same, per person 10 Levs for a sun bed, extra 10 Levs if you want a matress on it and 3 Levs if you want an umbrella. This is a rip off Jesus. Apart from all this not bad.

Private beach trip from hotel
Aug 2019 • Family
Private beach trip from the hotel approx 10 min bus ride.
We had been to the public beach the day before and the kids enjoyed riding the waves the beach was clean and shallow.
At Nirvana beach it was much quieter but the sea was deeper and down a sand bank so it was quite difficult to get back up there were also lots of rocks in the sea and lots of shells on the sea bed.
We had booked for a a few hours but the children wanted to leave after 1 hour the food was also good in the restaurant.

Not the best, not ok for kids
Aug 2019 • Couples
The beach it is small and it is somehow dirty. The shore is quite steep and in a few meeters you find yourself in deep water. Id you go more than 2 or 3 meters into the water the lifeguards will wistle you to go on the shore. The same beach it is splitter in half with one side for nudists. The experience of the lifeguards is 2 stars out of 3. Around the beach is a construction site which results in a lot materials thrown areoubd on the ground. The prices are 7 lv / sunbed, 8 lv / umbrella, 3 lv / sunbed cover foam.

Great day out
Aug 2019 • Family
Took the free mini bus from the hotel, which included free sun loungers and umbrellas, beach was great sand hot so wear flip flops.

Hired a jet ski at 60lev for 15 minutes a bit pricey but great fun.

Had a cheap lunch shish sausage and chips for only 4.5lev which was cooked fresh.

Spent the rest of the day in the sea swimming and riding the surf which is just the best fun with your son.

The shore is shallow, and sea was warm.

I’m not going to knock it in any way as we had a great time, but life is what you make it....

Best choice for nudists
Jul 2019 • Couples
The sea was not that clean and it's kind of expensive to visit that beach. 5 leva for parking plus umbrella, chaise-longs and mattresses for 2 people 28 leva. Two frappes were 12 leva and the total amount was 45 leva for a not very clean sea. The only advantage is that if you are nudism fan it's a good option.

The only beach in Varna where you can enjoy the water
Jul 2019 • Family
The only beach in Varna where you can enjoy the water and that because you'll forward in water slowly. All Beach Varna is different because after 3m water is very deep. Near is a nudist beach. Don't bother to buy drink from there. The offer is poor.

Quieter and cheaper than the main beach
Jul 2019 • Family
It depends where you are staying in Golden sands but Nirvana beach is worth the walk or the 10 lev taxi ride. The sunbeds and the water sports are all slightly cheaper and the fish restaurant MAGDALENA is only 2 lev a pint. The far side of Nirvana beach is called Nirvana Nude if taht is your thing.

one star is too much,
Avoid this beach, especially the terrace, keep a very low profile if you really want to go there.
I had the ugliest experience since I know and I can say I've seen many beaches(nude) and countries till now.
I stayed for a week in Laguna Camping nearby. I arrived on Sunday afternoon on this beach, where I tried to relax in the free corner of the north(nude section). The place seemed to me not very civilized and not very clean, but...anyway, tried to relax, nothing is perfect. I stayed for about 2 hours until the sun went down. After dressing up and stuff, decided to take away a beer to the box and go to take a walkon the pier to enjoy the last rays of the sun. I asked for a beer on the box and changed respectfully a few words with the man at the bar to whom I answered the question of where I am with no fear and openness. A surprise was the price he asked me on the beer box, 11 leva!!!, I asked once again because I thought it was expensive, anyway I took the beer and left, of course, no tax receipt. The next day, on Monday, I was in the same place between 11-13. I went into the water several times, read under my own umbrella and decided to ask the nearby store to make a small supply. On my way to the store, I decided to drink quickly a small cold beer and smoke a cigarette on the terrace. After a few seconds, another guy who was sitting close to me on the beach came also dressed and asked for a beer and sit at one table next to mine and smiled and said cheers. Well, after 1-2 minutes an older guy from the sunbeds that were very close came to me and in a very bad English with unfriendly manner pointed the finger in my face and told me that I have to go because this is a nude beach and I'm dressed... First I thought that he's drunk or he's joking, I said respectful that I'm also nudist, but now I came from the beach, I just want to leave and I will finish my beer and go, and besides that, there is also another person dressed at the table. The old guy went away, and I receive a confirmation from my beer Bulgarian colleague that was a hilarious happening... Well, in a few seconds three men came, the old guy, another old fart and a younger lifeguard came and started to push me and scream at me to go away, they asked me again where I am from, I was shocked, I tried to explain that I came from the beach and want to finish the beer and leave etc. but I did not have much luck, they were getting very aggressive towards me, started to push me, I fell on the plastic table, my glass of beer broke on the floor, the Bulgarian man next to me was asking them to stop because they are violent and they almost agressed him also, He left very fast while I was gathering my stuff. I was pushed again and hit on my arm, I have a big bruise now still... I was in a state of shock tried to ask for help from the bartender that gave me the beer a few minutes ago, was very relaxed looking like nothing is happening, I asked him to call the police because I'm a tourist and beeing agressed in their terrace and nothing. Then I decided that is time to get out from the bar because was not safe also, another lifeguard came and started to scream to pay for the broken glass 100 leva, I did not know if I had to laugh or run,I was surrounded, really, all was happening to fast and it was unbelievable...I wanted to call the police and they were saying "yes, yes, call the police, they will not help you..." I tried to escape but the first lifeguard was throwing sand on me and hit me, I fell again in the front of the bar, nobody wanted to defend me, was a nightmare. So I tried to escape by walking very fast on the beach but this crazy lifeguard was throwing sand on me and follow me another 50 m...

It was the last time when I was on this beach. Decided not to call the police, not to ruin my holiday with giving declarations and speak maybe with non-English Bulgarian policemen...
I don't know, because the other Bulgarian dressed guy who was in the same 100% situation was absolutely free to walk and no problems with him...

@tripadvisor, I'm dissapointed that you cenzor my review, it was exactly how it happend, I want to warn people especially Romanians that they are not welcome on this beach/terrace, what is wrong? I've been asked to many times where I am from and also read bad reviews from my fellow citizens...so I'm free to "connect the dots".

If you want to swim in fecal waters
Jul 2019 • Solo
The beach is immediately next to the sewage water pump center of Golden sands. You can feel this from the smell of the building next to the parking. The waste waters are dismiised by a pipe in the sea 500 meters from the shore in fronr of Nirvana beach. Dont put your ears and mouth in the water cause this sometime cause infections. Be especially careful in the nudist part many voyeurs with hidden cams nearby town go there and some post pics on the internet. Some of tge voyeurs are with powerful lenses in the woods above the beach so be careful. Overall i dont recomend especially the nudist part.

Rustic beach at the quieter end of golden sands
Jun 2019 • Couples
Visited this beach mainly due that the Hilton had a free shuttle service here. Gave the sun lounger operators my receipt from Hilton and no charge for loungers. Otherwise it would be 24 lev for umbrella and 2 loungers.
Life guard on duty and sea was pretty rough on a couple of occasions.
Nice relaxing beach, plentiful supply of loungers and better spot than central golden sands if you want to get away from party crowd.
Beach is ok nothing special could do with a bit of cleaning and it is a bit scruffy in parts
Few bars there, nudist bar right on beach, they will serve you with clothes on but not the cheapest buy Bulgarian standards. About 200m walk by the harbour is magdelena fantastic value.
Noddy train also drops off and picks up by here as well.
