Kaliakra, Kavarna

(4.4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Kaliakra is a long and narrow headland in the Southern Dobruja region of the northern Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, 12km east of Kavarna, 60km northeast of Varna and 65km southwest of Mangalia. The coast is steep with vertical cliffs reaching 70m down to the sea. Kaliakra is a nature reserve, where dolphins and cormorants can be observed. It sits on the Via Pontica, a major bird migration route from Africa into Eastern and Northern Europe. Many rare and migrant birds can be seen here in spring and autumn and, like much of this coastline, is home to several rare breeding birds . The rest of the reserve also has unusual breeding birds; saker falcon, lesser grey shrike and a host of others.It also features the remnants of the fortified walls, water-main, baths and residence of Despot Dobrotitsa in the short-lived Principality of Karvuna's medieval capital. The Bolata Cove with a small sheltered beach lies just north at the mouth of a picturesque canyon, also part of the nature reserve.

  • This place is really nice and has great views. Is a Cape which has to be seen. We went off season but to see from parking lots and toll, in summer must be packed. A place truly not to be missed. There are so many booths with flavors and typical products, a military base and the walls of this castle which was completely destroyed. There is also a bar and restaurant, but we have not tried because closed ... but with a terrace and spectacular views
