The Karadere area is situated some 6-7 km away from the Bulgarian seaside town of Byala. The area includes the Kara Dere beach, which is one of the last remaining natural beaches on the Bulgaria's Black Sea coast. The beach is more than 5 km long and is surrounded by a bushy forest.
During the summer, the Kara Dere beach is used as a camping site by tourists who decided to escape the civilization - in the Kara Dere area there is even no cell phone coverage.
The bigger part of the beach is used for camping using tents, while caravans are usually concentrated in the northern part of the beach, which is easier to reach.
The camping site is unofficial and hence it is free, but because of that there are no utilities like electricity, toilets or bathrooms. There is a small restaurant on the northern end of the beach that works no later than 9 pm and that offers a limited number of meals and cold beverages on reasonable prices. There is no tap water and the only sweet water available on the Kara Dere beach is a small stream in the southern end. One can also buy food and drinks from the Byala sea resort.
One can spend amazing quiet evenings around the camp fire on the Kara Dere beach, where the majority of people camping there are families. If you are looking for more of a place to party and make noise, look for a camping spot in the far southern part of the beach.
