Burgas

St.Anastasia Island

05 Dec 2018
The lighthouse (built late 19th century) on St.Anastasia is visible from far at night.This small island (albeit the largest on Bulgarian territory) made from volcanic rock, 6.5km off the coast between Burgas and Chernomorets, is the latest tourist attraction Burgas has to offer. Where over the centuries there once was a monastery, then a prison and tales of pirates abound - as of Summer 2014 visitors can spend a couple of hours exploring the island and its attractions, which include a museum and church. The monastery has 5 basic but attractive a rooms to offer for those that would like to spend a little longer on the island(reservations@gotoburgas.com) There are regular boat trips, starting at 10:00 (4 times a day) from the Burgas pier to the island and back, each journey taking between 30 - 40 minutes. Don't miss the opportunity to check out the monastery kitchen restaurant serving 'black mussels' or the herbal remedy store with its herbal teas and fresh juices. Many more attractions are promised including diving opportunities, weddings and christenings.
