The territory of Sungurlare municipality is one of the biggest in the Burgas county. Twenty-three decares of vineyards are cultivated in the area. The Sungurlare region is well-known in Bulgaria and abroad for its marvellous wines. The most famous brand called Sungurlarski misket is made from the grapes grown in the adjacent wine-growing villages and towns: Grozden, Slavyantsi, Choubra, Lozitsa and Chernitsa. There are 2 vinyards within the area that offer wine tasting experiences.
Sungulare is an ecologically clean area with no heavy industry or pollution. Dominated by narrow river valleys and numerous ravines that flow into them, the largest river is the River Kamchia which flows into the large Kamchia Dam. A completely unspoilt beach, watersport activities and boat trips are all available here.
