About St. Anastasia Island, Burgas

The only inhabited island off the Black Sea Coast has an interesting history. There used to be a convent here that was built in the middle ages, but when the island was transformed into a prison in the1920s, it was abandoned. When communist prisoners escaped the island, and later came to power, they renamed this isle as the Bolshevik Island.  

Today, visitors to the island will find pubs, restaurants and accommodation. There’s a lighthouse that you may walk up to, and a small museum on the island’s history to visit. There’s a beautiful, small chapel.

St. Anastasia Island, Burgas Reviews

  • Amazing place! 😍

  • До острова се стига с корабче от Бургас. Пътуването е в точно определени часове и в града няма достатъчно табели, по които да се ориентирате за мястото на отплаване. Островът е малък с хотелска част, заведение и музей. Можете да си вземете и сертификат за островитянин. Посещението ми хареса, но имах по-големи очаквания.

  • Leuk om mee te maken. Niet heel bijzonder

  • Очень приятно поплавать на кораблике в тёплый день. Колоритный остров. Интересная экскурсия.

  • Красиво,зелено, уютно с много интересна беседа при посрещането.Гледката от острова е фантастична.Има къде да се хапне, да се пие кафе, дори да се преспи
