Coast Guide
Coast Guide for Bulgarian Coast from Cape Korakia to Cape Emine
   The South coast of Burgas Gulf is rocky, high and highly devoured by many capes and small gulfs. Big sand beaches aper on some places. The overall direction of the coast is Nort - West to Cape Akin, and West to Burgas.
   Many riffs abear in front of the capes and islands, but not far than 0.3 n miles from the coast. One mile from the coast there are no navigation dangers.
   Most important are Cape Agalina, Cape Kolokita, Kiril Peninsula, Cape Atia Cape Chukalia and Cape Foros.
   Small ships can anchor in Port Sozopol, Port Atia, Port Druzba and Port Burgas and in the gulf of the Ropotamo River outfall, under Cape Kolokita and behind Cape Akin.
   Dangerous for the small ships are:
   Rock riff, deep 7.2m starts 2 n miles North-West of Cape Kilokita and lays 1.7 n miles North-West. It's wide 0.1 n miles.
   0.1 n miles East of Cape Hrisosotira there is riff.
   From the South-West end of St. Ivan Island, 2.5 n miles South-West the coast there is reef deep 5.1m.
   Cape Talaskara is surrounded by reef, laying 0.1 n miles in the sea.

   There is magnetic anomaly. Between the island and Cape Chukalia the anomaly is between 2deg. 8min. and 16deg. 8min. and North of the island upto +5degrees.
   In front of Cape Foros there are underwater rocks.
   From Burgas to Cape Emine the North coast of Burgas Gulf is mostly low and flat. It's high only from St. Vlas to Cape Emine. There are two big peninsulas - Pomorie and Nesebar.
   The north part of the gulf is much more shallow than the south, there are many shoals, banks and riffs.
   Important places are towns of Pomorie, Nesebar and cape Emine.
   Except in ports of Burgas, Pomorie and Nesebar small ships can anchor under Cape Akrotiria, southwest of Cape Ravda, in th nort and south gulfs of Nesebar and under Cape Emine.
   Riff, deep 2m spreeds 1.2 n miles south of Cape Lahna. It's wide about 1 mile.
   Between Burgas and Cape Lahna there is shoal, deep 10 to 2 meters, called Sokat. There are many rocks 2 miles along the riff.
   Southwest of Cape Lahna there is bank, deep 4.3m.
