The island is beautiful but very boring. You can walk the island in under 30 minutes. It is very small. Also bring your own water and food. They double the prices and there is only one place you can buy drinks and food. The museum...More

The island of St. Anastasia offers interesting opportunities for tourism in the Black Sea as it is one of the very few islands in it. On the island there is a cafe, restaurant, museum and other places just to enjoy the wonderful view.
