More notes about the marina

This marina is in two halves. The Eastern half is a commercial enterprise, modern and has facilities including fuel. The Western half is a family run business, is considerably cheaper, secure, but with limited facilities

Marina radio contact



Follow the marked channel inland from Varna Bay, under the bridge. Continue to follow the channel, still marked, into the lake. After a mile you will see a grey/white free water mark, indicating the approach angle for the marina. Head strait for the entrance, keep an eye on the depth. Shallows to either side, and shallow (1.5m) further in the marina.


Come alongside to the eastern side initially and seek directions. You may opt to keep your yacht in the cheaper western side after. Indeed, if your vessel is not flash enough, you may be encouraged to stay 'with the other cheap boats'

Marina facilities

There is a chandlery in the modern side.


  • Crane for haul-outs can be called in
  • Long-term storage on grass
  • Various repairs or assistance with repairs, but not professional


There is 24 hour security in both locations. Both are gated areas

Marina Location

You'll need a taxi to get anywhere. It is a long walk to the nearest shop, over hills and dirt tracks. Very peaceful, except for the security alams which go off at night occasionally.


  • Taxis can be called. 10 lev into town
  • Varna Airport is a 15 minute drive


The family run side is very cheap, about 60 euro for a month for a 9m yacht in the water. Less on land. All negotiable.

Personal experience

I kept my boat here a couple of times in the family side. Friendly people, helpful. Friends of mine have wintered their yacht here--BenPikeUK
