Visitors from all over europe & even Bulgarians were all amazed at the raw beauty of the rocky coastline and pristine beaches. The villages are like a step back in time, Brodilovo & Bulgari are thriving rural idylls with their own soft micro climate. Long dry summers and brief winters, with shoulder seasons often around 15 degrees, at night! Certainly the last refuge for flora and fauna in Europe.

Sinemorets is absolutely worth a visit in November! It is situated on a peninsula south of the mouth of the Velokarte River in the Strandja Nature Park. The Park is the largest protected area in Bulgaria. The estuary of the Veleka river forms a beautiful sandpit as it flows in the sea. The forests all around shine in a glorious gold and yellow, chances are good for warm weather and sun. And you can even in late season get great food to affordable prices in the cafe at the strand.

A beautiful area of trees mountains and rivers .The roads are good and a pleasure to drive on .Not much traffic and lots of lovely villages .Reminds me of England 60 years ago.Trees everywhere and wildlife everywhere. Hares storks Eagles and Kites .Rivers flowing from the mountains to the sea .Butterfly's and dragonflys.You have got to see this to believe it.Only saw it in summer but I think autumn and winter would be good as well .

A great way to explore part of this Nature Park is with a 2 hour boat trip with Veleka Tours. We were staying at the Bella Vista Hotel in Sinemorets and booked through our TUI Rep for €23 each. Good clean boat with easy access from their mooring next to the metal road bridge built by the Germans during the war and still going strong. The mooring is only a few hundred metres from the fabulous beach. The tour started with a trip up river, past the point where the forest becomes sub-tropical and we saw vegetation that we had only seen in Africa previously. On the way we saw two species of turtle sunning themselves on fallen tree trunks that stuck up from the water. We also saw eagles, purple herons, kingfishers and other birds that we couldn’t identify. This is a strictly enforced protected part of the nature park, and a boat is the only way to access it. The river appeared very clean and un-polluted and many people swim in it close to it’s mouth at Veleka Beach. When we reached the furthest point up-river that tourists are allowed, the boat turned and followed the river all the way to Veleka Beach where it enters the sea. This is a beautiful beach, and seeing from a boat on the river gives a different perspective. The boat gave us an excellent opportunity to see the wildlife and the forest in a very comfortable, peaceful and relaxed way. It really is a very beautiful stretch of river, and the captain who was very friendly, gave us a lot of interesting information and knew exactly where to go to get the best views of the turtles.

We are just back after 3 days in Strandja NP. We stayed at Silkosia guest house with Fillip who I had contacted via the visitstrandja webpage. Strandja national park is an amazing place offering forest walks, waterfalls, quaint villages, churches, chapels, a stunning coastal walk and some wonderful festivals. We were at the firedancing festival in Bulgari which is a spiritual experience. If you are looking for natural and cultural experience in a pristine place, untouched by mainstream tourism- this is the place for you. Fillip was an excellent and enthusiastic guide, passionate about his people and local culture. Cannot recommend him enough.
