Visiting a Black sea island is an experience you can rarely find in Bulgaria and it's definitely worth it. The buildings are build in a traditional style and a little chapel with old murals is preserved from the original monastery.
The island can be reached by a boat from Burgas. However especially in the summer reservations are required because the boats are usually completely full. At the island there is a small lecture about its history and then tourists are left with free time before the departure of the boat. The place is a true gem for photographers, as it offers amazing views of the sea coast.
There is also one restaurant, which unfortunately is quite small and doesn't offer a broad menu, but it's really cheap. I didn't get to try it but in a kiosk next to the restaurant they sell traditional lemonade and herbs grown on the island.
An important advice if you go in the summer is to bring sun cream. There are shadows around the buildings, but at the viewpoints it's quite sunny.More
