Silistar protected area
The Silistar protected area covers the territory between the villages of Sinemoretz and Rezovo. The fabulous Silistar beach lies several hundred meters off the road.
The Silistar beach became popular among tourists only in the last couple of years. Located in a national park of the Southern Strandzha mountain, naturelovers can find various animals, birds and insects there. The beach has wonderful sands, and is loved by families with children due to its serene, shallow and always-crystal waters. It has been cultivated at late with lifeguards being put at regular distances along the beach and a cool-shadowed pub offering food and refreshments having been erected in its northern end. The waters around the rocky ends of the beach offer a great view of marine life to amateur and professional divers.
Here the seashore is picturesque with rocky beaches and coves. The sand lily and other rare plant species grow on sandy beaches along the Bay of Silistar and fauna on the southern coast is rich too. A common sight are sea eagles, small cormorant, owls, Egyptian vultures and over 160 other bird species. Silistar is one of the last Bulgarian Black Sea coast refuges of the monk seal.
