 Burgas - Profile

Location

Lying at the westernmost point of the Black Sea, Burgas is Bulgaria's largest port. It hold several international festivals during the summer and has a vibrant student population which adds to its atmosphere. The town has a cosmopolitan feel, however facilities for visiting yachts are limited.

Position 42° 28.07’N, 27° 28.77’E (harbour entrance)

Clearance

Port of Entry. See Bulgaria Formalities for details.

Call the Port Authorities on VHF channel 11 on approach. Moor at Quay 6 for clearance. The formalities are performed here and are straightforward. The ships papers may be retained by the Harbour Master.

Recently, the authorities have been boarding vessels while still offshore and some clearance procedures have been conducted at that time. Customs still must be completed ashore.

There are no fees for clearance procedures.

The Port Control Office is situated on the 8th floor of the tower with the radar antenna, by the dock gates. (NOTE: No lift after 3rd floor!). You must go here for departure clearance.

After clearance, a yacht can move to the yacht club.

Docking

The Yacht Club is immediately to starboard after passing the lighthouse at the entrance to the commercial harbour.

In 2006 cruisers report that the moorings are in a poor state and generally for smaller yachts (no more than 12m). It may be advisable to drop your own anchor and back to the quay, but stand well off as wash from passing commercial traffic and swell can cause problems. There is 24 hour security.

It is quite a long walk into town from here with little shade.

There is an anchorage behind the commercial port. A few local boats moor here and it offers good shelter. The bottom is mud and good holding. You are closer to town and you do not have to walk through the port.

There is a dinghy ramp near the light on the end of the breakwater.

There is a breakwater running north to south separating the pilot wharf form the main harbour. It has been added relatively recently and some electronic charts (ex: C-MAP) do not show it.
