Problem is that the boats that go to the sea are not operational. Only smaller boats going up the stream- not so nice and intetesting! Better visit Beglictash Thracian Sanctuaries near Primorsko!

Reserve is completely deserted in off-season. We visited in April - there were a lot of forest flowers in bloom, but not many birds and off course no river cruises. Probably best visited when the lake flowers are in bloom.

It is peaceful but there isn't much to see only trees. Saw some small turtles laying on the broken branches at the side of the river. Trip only lasts about 30mins
