the Bulgarian coast. It represents an oval ledge, broken off the Dobrudja plate by the coast. The big cliffs make this area almost
unaccessible, except via a few narrow paths among the rocks. About 40 caves
can be found in the vertical cliffs hanging over the sea. Their smoothened
walls and niches dug deep into the rock speak about the existence of an
ancient cave settlement there. There are also remains of a stronghold
dating back to Roman and Byzantine times. A 90 ha region is declared a
protected archeological area.
The Yaylata area can be accessed by car, while most of the caves can be
reached only by professional speleologists.
