Coastal lagoon with unique healing mud
Jun 2021
Pomorie Lake is a coastal lagoon separated from the sea by a natural sand spit and an additional artificial dike. The place is beautiful and the spit is good for a nice relaxing stroll which can bring you as far as the village of Aheloy. The spit is suitable for those who prefer secluded beaches but should not forget that it is not guarded.
The lake is also very good for bird-watching as it is on the Via Pontica route and lots of migratory birds from the whole of Europe can be observed.
The sand of the spit is black in color which is due to the healing mud extracted from the lake. The mud is unique, different from the kinds of healing mud found in other places around the world, very rich in sulfur and iron, and it heals so many diseases of the musculoskeletal system and the peripheral nervous system, skin diseases and diseases of the reproductive systems.

Mud for beauty
Aug 2020
The place known of its healthing mud - good for beauty. The mud is on the bottom of the lake. You should take it and spread on whole the body and should stay like this for few minutes (the mud should dry) and then you should wash it with salty water from the lake.

Beautiful place to go for a walk or mud bath
Jul 2020
We visited Lake Pomorie during our family summer holiday with two kids aged 1.5 and 5y.yo. The lake is a salty lagoon near the town of Pomorie, famous with its healing mud. The mud lies on the bottom of the lake and you can easily take it and spread on the body. You should stay like this for 15-20 min and then wash with salty water from the lake. Here are the most interesting points of Lake Pomorie:
- Museum of salt, located on the shore in the town of Pomorie. In the exposition you can see how salt had been produced from the lake for centuries
- Birds. The lake is a famous stop for birds on their way south, through the Via Pontica bird migration route. Various birds can be observed in the lake
- Bathe/swim - it is not forbidden but the lake itself is shallow - maximum depth 1.5 m. Moreover, it is 4 times saltier than the Black sea
- Pomorie salt ponds - at the northern end of the lake, on the way to Aheloy. The salt evaporation basins are a beautiful view on sunset
The sand strip separating the lake from the sea is 5-6 km long and can be walked. Cars are allowed to some point

Generally lake Pomorie is a beautiful place for both walks, baths and spending time out. Mid that mosquitoes are present in the summer months near the water

The best sunset spot
Jul 2020 • Solo
While in Pomorie do visit the lake where it borders the sea shore. A great spot for the best sunset in town.

Nice, impressive and healthy
Aug 2019 • Family
This is the place to go for sightseeing for sure, and the best time will be sunset.
The lake is on one hand and the sea is on the other. It’s more the pointe than the lake
On top of the beautiful view, one will also find a beautiful black sand battue, almost no people and clear clean sea
And the bonus will be the sea mud sold there at 1€ per bottle, good for three people
Go for it for sure for family or romantic walk

Cormorants and avocets
Jul 2018 • Couples
May be interesting for birdwatchers - there were flocks of cormorants and avocets close to the lake's shore. There's a visitor centre but closed on paricular days so we could not get more information.

Once in a lifetime mud bath experience
May 2019
First time travellers to Bulgaria and one of my friends researched and found out about the mud at Pomerie lake. Rather reluctantly, we all went along with her idea of a day out!
We took a taxi to the lake and our very helpful driver spoke to the elderly man and woman attendants who, for a few Lev per person will bring you a bucket of black mud from the salt flats. You then have to cover yourself with it and let it to dry, any smell evaporates. After about 20 to 30 minutes make your way to the lake to wash off, don't forget your sponge. At the toilet block we used the bucket to rinse any residue from each and get changed.
There is a visitor centre (Unfortunately lunchtime when we were there) and a small salt museum entrance to which was a few Lev.
In all it was a good day, we had a laugh at ourselves, had lovely soft skin and enjoyed lovely peaceful surroundings.

Take your insect repellent
May 2019
Went to see the wildlife but found more than we bargained for, the midges reminded me of Scotland, millions of them everywhere,, but the visitor centre was great very welcoming and gave us a tour, binoculars freely available so you can see the many bird species up close and a live video feed to get more close-ups, well worth a visit to see the mud lake and the wildlife in it's natural environment.
