Name of the village comes from st Barbara.
Express buses leave from Burgas bus station next to the train station, run several times daily and pass Varvara on the way. Travel from Burgas takes about an hour and costs 10 Lev.
Quite easy to do on foot, however part of people opt for cars to go to the beach.
- Swim, rest and play at the beach. The beach is small, but not crowded in comparison to more touristic places around. It is a 10-15 min walk from the main road. There's a WC and small food and drink bar at the beach.
- For a bigger beach - locals tell there is a Delphin beach (with camping) some 2 km off the village.
- Locals tell there are good diving places there.
- Play with kids in a playground in the center of the village.
- Walk to the Strandja mountain. The road goes through the forest.
There are a couple of food shops and a drug store.
There are some restaurants offering quite rich menus with local salads taking the lead.
- There are some marked hotels and guesthouses at the main road.
- At least some (and maybe many) local people run room rental business. These are nice offers where you could get an attractive quality/price deal (i.e. 25 Lev for a night in a nice room with two beds, a double one for parents and a single one for kid). These places are unmarked - you have to ask locals to find them.
- Nearby Sinemorets. To go there you have to catch an express bus from Burgas (you can find timetables at municipality in the center of the village). Sinemorets is much more touristic, but has very good beaches.
