"Head North!" Top 5 Page for this destination Burgas Off The Beaten Path Tip by johngayton
Burgas Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 17 photos
For a pleasant wander along the sea shore you can walk for miles north from the city. This takes you past the wetlands of the Atanosovsko Lake and its salt-flats whose dark mud is reputed to have healing properties.
The seashore varies as you walk and arriving at the section of black sand comes as a bit of a surprise. The sand actually IS black, not due to pollution but the combination of natural minerals, especially manganese compounds, which are particular to the area.
If you keep going there is footpath following those areas where there is no beach and eventually you'll arrive (after about 10 km) at the beach resort of Sarafovo.
If you don't fancy the walk back you can catch a local bus, the N 15, back into the city centre.
