Information

Irakli - location on the map

Irakli is located 7 kilometres north of the village of Emona, 9 kilometres of the town of Obzor and 30 kilometres of Nessebar. The total area of the preserved site is 42.3 hectares.

The post of the National movement “Green Patrols” is situated at one end of the bay. The protected area extends from the past to cape Emine. The beach line is over 3 kilometres long; it is very clean, free of stones and is located in close proximity to a protected area.

Irakli was declared a protected area by Order No. RD 110 of the 6 May 1994 in order to protect typical coastal habitats of rare and endangered plant species (sand lily, spurge, sea woundwort, Tatar spurge and Sea holly) and birds. Some of the plants are listed in the Red Book of Bulgaria (a list of endangered or threatened species in the country) and are protected by the Biodiversity Act.

The area is relatively remote from the large resorts and is mainly visited by young people, who ignore the lack of facilities at the expense of interaction with the wildlife. The tents of many people, who prefer alternative forms of vacation, can be seen in the region from June to September.

One of the traditional events in the region is the celebration of July Morning, which is expressed by welcoming the sunrise on the morning of 1 July at the beach.

The protected area of Irakli is guarded by employees of the State Hunting Directorate of Nessebar of the Regional forestry Directorate of Bourgas.

R | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful I hope you won't build even more hotels and apartments in the future. They are realy spoiling the beautifull nature you have.
Why not build some interesting wooden tourist village at sea or a deacent camp. I am sure this would atract more people than a concrete jungle as we have already at home.
Consider this if you care about your country and its legacy for the future generations.

T.J. | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Cool place! Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Bojin Djinkov | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful In the next few years Irakli will be the summer hit in Bulgaria. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No BE | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful It's the last unspoilt beach in Bulgaria. So why let a greedy swiss company or anybody else ruin it? There's too much ugly concrete jungle already and not enough choice for tourists or locals looking for somewhere beautiful to relax. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No wolf | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Yeah, but it will be only the summer hit if the hotel complex of a Suisse chain won't come. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No
