“Yug” campsite and “Coral” Beach are attractive places for sunbath, swimming, leisure and camping in nature. They lay on the same beach strip between the resorts of Kiten and Lozenets on the Black Sea Coast, Bulgaria. Fascinating for the visitors are the natural features: transparent waters, extensive dunes, thick wild forests located behind the sand, as well as the lack of massive concrete structures. Mainly campers visit the beaches as well as the guests of the nearby resorts, in searching for new inspiring views and opportunities to diversify the Black Sea holiday.
“Yug” campsite and “Coral” Beach – map
The “Yug” campsite
It is located about 3 km south of the centre of Kiten city and 2.5 km from Lozenets village. It is 56 km away from the regional city Burgas. In case of driving along the main road in the direction of Burgas – Tsarevo, turn left shortly after passing by Kiten city. After that, turn right and drive about 1 km on an asphalt road. The road is not in good condition, so you have to drive carefully. Along the way, there are short paths through the forest that reach the beach. Further, It leads to Lozenets village.
The name “Yug” in Bulgarian means “South.” One could say that the place fully corresponds to the concept of a campsite – there are only low structures, bungalows, as well as sites for tents, campers and caravans in its territory. They are all into spacious green meadows and forest. There are an umbrella and lifeguard area on the beach, as well as an unguarded, free beach area. The length of the beach that belongs to “Yug” campsite is about 300 m
The “Coral” Beach
It is adjacent to the beach at “Yug” campsite, but it is in south direction. 800 m long and reaches the Resort of Lozenets. The spacious beach is surrounded by dense, wild forest that was a protected area in the recent past. At the time of our visit (June 2019), there was no umbrella area or a beach bar. The place is prefered by the fans of nature tourism and wild camping. Unlike the “Yug” campsite, there is no arranged campsite here. There are no bungalows, bathrooms, toilets and electricity. Until recently, it was a practice among campers to pitch tents on the beach.
Sadly, at the moment (June 2019), due to the changes in “The Law on the Structure of the Black Sea Coast” which come into force, these practices are very likely to be stopped. The law provides for significant fines for camping on the dunes. The wild woods behind the beach are private property, which makes it impossible to place tents there. It remains to be seen whether free camping areas will be designated, as the law provides for arranging of such sections.
Of course, there is no problem for stay at the beach for swimming, sunbaths and leisure, if just a towel is placed on the sand.
