We recommend committing to two months working in Sunny Beach initially, so you can experience as much of the season as possible, then you can always stay on longer if you want.

We recommend going out a bit before the season starts so you can get used to your surroundings before the streets are filled with tourists and partiers.

The wages in Sunny Beach are generous, and this will go far as the cost of living is minimal. You’ll find that food and drink in general are pretty cheap, and if you’re doing bar work or running the bar crawls, you’ll get good deals on drinks.

More money can be found in the commission based roles like ticket selling or shot selling. If you can talk a big game and sell a lot, you’ll find that you’re never short of money.

How many hours a day will I be working in Sunny Beach?

Hours and shifts for jobs in Sunny Beach will vary depending on your job of choice. Ticket sellers can expect to be out enhancing their tan on the job, whilst bar work will obviously start later.
