Kamen Bryag is a resort settlement and as such it offers its visitors the opportunity to fully enjoy the unique nature in the area. In spite of the fact that it is a popular tourist destination the village is neither noisy, nor overpopulated. It generally attracts tourists craving tranquillity, peacefulness and virgin nature. There are no massive holiday complexes, luxurious hotels and noisy discotheques in Kamen Bryag but the beautiful, mysterious  rocky coast often echoes with the gentle sounds of the guitars played by the young people camping there. Serenity, placidity, unique landscape, crystal clear air - these are just part of the merits of the settlement to make the tourists came back over and over again. Some of the people who tasted the magic of this place would buy a property in the village, willing to settle there permanently.
The day in Kamen Bryag may turn out to be really short if you are infatuated with fishing, scuba diving or bird observation or if you are interested in archaeology or bio-energy phenomena. In the solitude of the rocky coast and the steep rock formations one could enjoy the caresses of the sun and fishing or dare extreme challenges such as climbing, diving and paragliding.

landmarks and events

  • Yaylata area lies some 2 km away from the village of Kamen Bryag. It has been inhabited during the past seven thousand years by Thracians, Romans, Greeks, Slavs and Proto-Bulgarians. The ancient shrines revealed there prove the cult to various pagan divinities. An ancient Thracian necropolis with two-chamber tombs dated back to the 2nd century has been discovered there, as well. In the area there are over 100 cave dwellings. According to several hypotheses, many centuries ago, this area used to be inhabited by the Sarmatians. The legend has it that Lysimachus - the deputy of Alexander the Great has concealed a remarkable treasure somewhere in the rocks. Over 50 various bird species are nesting in Yaylata (such as: Cormorant, Hoopoe, Kentish Plover, European Roller, Eurasian Eagle-owl). One of the main bird migration routes known as Via Pontica is passing above this unique area. The reserve is also a natural environment for 19 rare and endangered plants. The beauty of the reserve is fully revealed in spring when the peonies are blooming.
  • Located 1.5 km away from Yaylata right next to the rocks lies Ogancheto ("the flame") area. It is named after a 50 cm tall flame which burns ceaselessly for over a half century now in a crack between the rocks due to a leak of a naturally inflammable gas.
