The road Nessebar- Elenite divides Sunny Beach resort to two main zones- zone “East” and zone ” West”. In the Eastern part of the city most hotels and holiday homes which were built during its establishment are concentrated. All of them are renovated and offer contemporary conveniences to their guests. In the recent years giant hotel complexes with parks and pools, trade centers, bars and night clubs, mini golf and tennis courts and others were built between the older buildings. The colours of the buildings shade into a colorful faery under the bright sunshine which leaves the feeling of complete lightness. At the same time each of the buildings has characteristic features. The styles vary from the traditional Nesseber style through the Mediterranean architecture to the contemporary shapes. In the Western part between Nessebar- Elenite and the main road Burgas-Varna the construction is mainly new buildings- luxurious apart-hotels, villa complexes and hotels. Large scale construction
of big holiday complexes offering additional services,
sports facilities and attractions is expected in western direction from Sunny Beach towards the villages Tanokovo and Kosharica.
The zone deemed slightly attractive because of its remoteness from the sea currently is becoming the only alternative for development of Sunny Beach.
The sea is to the East and to the North and South the resort borders St. Vlas and Nessebar. Investors, in their search for alternatives of the sea holiday rely on different amusements like golf, horse riding, aqua parks, and water sport facilities on the artificial lake. The infrastructure in the eastern part of the resort is well-developed while in the western there are still places where it is not built because of constant construction work.
