Thursday, 08 November 2007
 The town of Ahtopol (population: 1364) is situated on a sharply jutted cape 87 km south-east of Bourgas and 477 km south-east of Sofia.
Five kilometres south of Ahtopol is the mouth of Veleka River, the most beautiful river all along the Black Sea coast in spite of the competitive characteristics of Kamchia and Ropotamo. The village of Kosti famous for the nestinarski dances (barefoot dances on glowing embers) is situated nearby the river mouth.

The village of Varvara is 3 km to the north, it is a favourite place for divers and skin-divers for it is full of stone cavities in the river banks and underwater “reefs” of shells. Usually people in search of nature and solitude come to spend their holidays here. The beaches of Varvara are rocky. The village of Sinemorets is 10 km south of Ahtopol. There is a camping site and three beautiful beaches.

The last village on the coast is called Rezovo. It has a nice beach but is rarely used as a holiday place as it is too close to the national border and the border troops are stationed here.
