Places of Interest The Alepou Beach and Arkoutino Beach just next to the resort in southern direction are wild and beautiful places where the sea is traditionally rough. Inland from the Alepou Beach is the Alepou Marsh (literally meaning the Fox's Marsh), which is separated from the sea by a 320-meter wide sand stripe. The marsh used to a lagoon lake once and is declared a natural reserve.
Further down the seaside road to the south of Duni one can see the St-Thomas Island (also known as the Snake Island for the plenty of snakes one can come across there), which is situated just about 300m away from the coast. The islet is uninhabited in present days, but used to shelter a Hellenic sanctuary in ancient times. The islet is popular for its cactus plantation, planted back in 1932. Cape Maslen is situated just after the mouth of the Roporamo River. Its rocky profile and steep slope down to the sea offer a great view to tourists who have climbed on top of it.
Beneath the cape, one can see small and quiet coves among the fiords, covered with pebbles and seashells. Further southward is the Perla Campsite located in one of the most beautiful bays along the Black Sea coast. Here the beach gradually turns into a green grove. Nearby is the marsh of Stomoplo. Two natural reserves cover this area - Vodna Lilia (water lily) and Velyov Vir. Via Pontica - the way of migrating birds flying to the south also passes through here. Every year at the end of the summer thousands of storks, pelicans, and about 30 species of birds of prey gather in the area before they head southwards to spend the winter.
