For us it was the best place to rest our feet after touring the Old Nessebar. You'll have a wonderful panorama of rocky beach and old ruins.

Sveta Bogoroditsa Eleusa or the Basilica of the Mother of God Eleusa is well worth a visit. It is just a ruin but is quite a large site. It is right on the coast so lovely sea views.
