The sand which makes for the interesting view from the terraces of Golden Dunes is not just ordinary sand.
It represents an interesting attraction of nature, called Sand Dunes MMC (after the International Youth Centre nearby) and officially certified as protected in 1984 by the Council of Ministers.
They are of the type Southern Pontic Grey Dunes (community Aurinio uechtritziani-Artemisietum campestris) – fixed coastal dunes stabilized and colonized by many diverse coenoses dominated by perennials and with abundant lichens and mosses in some areas. Please, keep off the dunes! Use only the wooden tracks a little south of the hotel. The dunes should not be treaded and littered with garbage.
