Location: The village of Sinemoretz lies 6 km south of Ahtopol. It features two beautiful beaches - one to the north, representing a pretty wide strip of sand bordering the mouth of the Veleka river from one shore to the other and another one to the south stretching between jutty rocks. The former is less populated due to its hard access via a dirt road, and is preferred by young liberal people, nudists and those in search of solitude. The south one in turn is rather crowded during the peak season for it is easy accessible by car and tourist-friendliness for two large pubs where from one can buy fast food and refreshments.
History: Before the fall of communism in 1989, the village was a part of the restricted border area due to its proximity to the Bulgarian-Turkish border and access was not allowed to outsiders. Since the abolishment of restrictions, its beautiful and intact nature has appealed to wealthy people, who have rushed to buy land and build luxurious villas there. Gradually, the village has grown into modern medium-class resort with its average price level of accommodation and outdoor food being higher than e.g. in the neighbouring villages of Ahtopol or Rezovo. Yet one can still see few traditional dilapidated houses of local people, which stand awkwardly against the imposing villas of newcomers.
Places of Interest: The village of Sinemoretz lies in the skirts of the Strandzha Mountain in the middle of a natural reserve, which already makes it a desired destination of naturelovers. A few kilometers down the road to Rezovo one can visit the fabulous beach of Silistar, which has become popular among tourist only in the last couple of years. The beach has wonderful sands, and is loved by families with children due to its serene, shallow and always-crystal waters. The Silistar beach has been cultivated at late with lifeguards being put at regular distances along the beach and a nice-shadowed pub offering food and refreshments being erected in its northern end. The waters close to the rocky ends of the beach offer a great view of marine life to amateur and professional divers.
Accommodation: Almost all the houses in Sinemoretz offer rooms and beds to let, and it is easiest to ask around or knock on a few doors in order to find accommodation. There are also a few hotels to choose from, with the Villa Philadelphia (which offers also guided birdwatching tours in the Strandzha national reserve), the Sinyata Akula family pension (meaning literally 'the Blue Shark') and Domingo being among the most popular ones.
Catering: All of the above mentioned hotels have their own restaurants. Besides, similarly to other villages along the coast, outdoor food is easy to find as almost every house with a big yard hosts a pub or a cafe bar.
Transport: There are a few daily buses from Ahtopol to Sinemoretz, although it is possible to walk the 6km ditance between the two provided weather is nice and one is not burdened by luggage.
