Okolica Albena is a rugged and rocky part of the Black Sea shore north of the village of Albena. The bushes, cliffs, beach and sea attract a variety of birds. It is great place to observe such birds as Squacco Heron and Little Egret, as well as Black-winged Stilt. But also good for observing birds like Red-rumped Swallow, Alpine Swift, Black-headed Bunting and Pied Wheatear.



Follow the coastal road from Albena to Balchik and you will pass the area. The place is easy accessible from the resorts of Albena.
