This is a lovely area of Bulgaria, easily accessible from Burgas and Sozopol. We found a Bulgarian who took us in his car around a scenic route (charging only 50 lev plus petrol) and we visited Thracian and Roman tombs, a village with 18th and 19th century traditional houses, and a fishery. We had a very good lunch at a fish farm and then went for a walk through the most beautiful woods, crossing the river by stepping stones and a wooden plank.
Some of the roads in Strandja are very bad, which can be hard on your car's suspension and tyres.
If you go, it's a good idea to take your passport in case you want to go near the Turkish border. We were stopped by border police who checked our identity. The situation in Syria has meant that some refugees who went to Turkey try to get into the EU via Bulgaria, so they are extra vigilant.
