This beach resort has become the new party holiday spot

Thousands of party-loving tourists seeking drugs, booze and hookers are now flocking to Sunny Beach — a spot that’s been heralded as the new party town.

On Bulgaria’s Black Sea coastline, Sunny Beach is known for its raging night-life and water sports that attract boozy travellers hunting down a party holiday, The Sun reports.

The resort is becoming especially popular with Brits, and it’s been dubbed the new Magaluf — in reference to the Spanish party holiday destination.

Brits who have worked summer seasons at the debaucherous Balkan resort have said they’ve witnessed unbelievably wild antics, including mass nudity, public brawls and crazy drunken excess.

Half a litre of beer can be bought for less than a pound in the resort, and a couple can dine out with a bottle of wine for as little as $36.

“I’ve seen people falling asleep inside clubs and in weird places, as well as breaking or spraining their ankles, or cutting their feet with glass all the time from walking through the streets with no shoes on,” John Magilton, 23, from Swansea, Wales, told Wales Online.

“You can also dance naked on the bar, so sometimes you will get people who are naked falling off, which was quite strange, but it was part of the club I worked for.

“Girls and boys would be naked, they do say as part of their slogan ‘the only place where you are allowed to dance naked on the bar’ — it’s different.

“One minute you would be dancing and the next thing you would look up and there would be someone there naked.”

A purpose-built, modern holiday town, Sunny Beach resort has a main street that’s packed with clubs, casinos, restaurants and bars.

This year the resort has been targeted by sex workers who reportedly have British lads firmly in their sights.

Prostitution isn’t illegal in Bulgaria unless organised in brothels — but it’s believed to be linked to the country’s criminal underworld.

The UK Foreign Office has put out a warning for British tourists visiting the area this northern summer who may come into contact with a sex worker.

“We’ve received numerous reports of muggings and assaults of British nationals by prostitutes and their minders,” the alert said.

“Avoid areas where prostitutes operate, including car parks, the beach, badly-lit areas and areas with bushes and tress.

“Tourists have been victims of overcharging in strip clubs and threatened with violence if they don’t pay.”

Last year, 281,000 Brits visited Bulgaria — many of them headed straight to Sunny Beach.

The country’s government declared a “war on noise” in an attempt to crack down on boozy tourists in the area in 2017.

Nightclubs and music festivals were raided for drugs and disorderly behaviour — some were even cancelled or closed down.
