A coastal headland formed where the easternmost point of the Stara Planina mountains meets the Black Sea. The coast is rocky, with vertical cliffs, dry grassland, Paliurus scrub, and sparse stands of secondary Quercus forest.
The headland is a major migratory bottleneck site, where huge numbers of soaring waterbirds and raptors pass overhead in autumn, especially Ciconia ciconia (92,272-172,928 per season during 1990-1996). It is also one of the most important breeding areas for Hippolais olivetorum in the country.
