Geocache Description:


North of Primorsko, in the zone between the Stamopolu lagoon and the beach, is situated one of the best preserved sand dunes regions along the Black sea coast. The highest dune ridges reach 19m and are exclusively fascinating view for all visitors of Primorsko.



Summers are usually dry and warm. Temperatures in June vary (22-23°C) due to the cooling influence of the sea. The closeness of the relatively warm waters makes the winters the mildest in the whole country.


The living world of the dunes:

There is a large number of specific sand (psammophite) kinds of plants. Eighty plant kinds have been found among the dunes. Fourteen of them are included in the Red Book of Bulgaria, which concerns endangered animal and vegetation species.

Big is the diversity of invertebrates, rare and endangered amphibian species, reptiles and mammals.



The sand beach strip built of close fine sand is formed to the East of Stamopolu lagoon. The fraction 0,5-0,25 mm takes 74%. Towards the South direction, the sand became in component predominates (carbonate content reaches 60%). The contents of heavy minerals is too limited - 0,8-1,0%. The coefficient of sedimentation for the bay and the beach are correspondingly 1,30 and 1,12. The strong North-East wind has moved the sand towards the inside of the dry land more than 600 m. The zone between the lagoon and beach strip is characteristic dune landscape. In some places the dunes are lie on calciferous sandstones.

The crests of the highest dunes are 19 m in height above sea-level and in 35° C directed. They are formed by South- East wind which velocity sometimes is over 15 m/s in December. The dunes in the region of Stamopolu lagoon  obviously are not connected with the Ropotamo river.
