    #2 Heading South

    Heading south from where the town's main street meets the harbour the first mile, or so, is where all the development is. Continuing past this there is a road which follows the shore as far as Albena (I think). This was constructed at the same time as the EU-funded Coastal Protection Dike and whilst it is used by motor vehicles these seem to be quite rare (at least in January anyway) and so makes for a pleasant traffic-free wander.

    This takes you between the cliffs and shore and I can imagine gets a bit wild when there's a storm - I suppose that's why they've built the defences!

    #1 - Heading North

    There's no coastal path as such as you head out of the town to the north but there's a sort of side road which skirts the sea with places where you can get off-road for great panoramic views of the town and the bay. There's also some interesting flora and fauna to be observed and you can watch the cormorants, as well as the locals, fishing if that's your thing.

    I've no idea what the flora in pic 3 is but if anyone knows please let me know.

    SOLITARY BEACHES UNDER THE CLIFFS

    by jani79 Written Sep 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Few kilometers north from Balchik, there are really beautifull beaches under cliffs. The beaches are clean and peacefull - oppsite to Varna beach. You can easily find a romantic bay just for yourself.
    To get there take the Balchik-Kavarna road, after few kilometers turn right into one of numerous macadam roads.
