Walk along the coast from Rezovo to Sinemorec



The staring point of the trek was the Rezovo River, which serves as border between Turkey and Bulgaria and therefore is the most southern point on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. The village with the matching name Rezovo happen that is small and pretty pleasant place by the look of it.

From there after a bit of walking there are interesting rock formations called Kastrich, after that was something that really surprised me big fence with barbed wire and cameras patrolled by armed police and soldiers which were on high alert because of illegal immigrants trying to enter the country from Turkey, so in fact the passage along the coast is closed and one must got to the main road, which is couple of kilometres away and cross there.

After that there is the very famous beach called Silistar, which is a natural reserve and I guess it used to be place were animals and plants can live without being destroyed, but I use past tense, because it looks now kind of the opposite thing, way too many cars and people and actually worse then the average. The Sand Lily was very nice species indeed, but it is picked up by people not caring about the nature or not interested to know is its protected or not. For example there was a plaque dedicated to two life guards who died saving a child and it was decorated with sand lilies.

And later on during the trek are the beaches Listi and Lipite. Lipite seems to be one of the designated as naturist/nudist beaches and looks very nice place, in fact much better then the more popular Silistar and Butamyata. After Lipite with half hour walk is Butamyata and the village Sinemorec.

Important point to note is that there are couple very dangerous for walking areas, where the trail passes exactly on the edge of 30-40m high nearly vertical cliffs, which on top of that are some kind of easily crumbling rocks and I'd advise to be prepared physicaly for a bit of bouldering and to use suitable foot gear.
