The firth of Alepou is a protected area on the coast of the Black Sea. It is situated seven km south of Sozopol, near the preserve of Ropotamo.
Alepou is a swamp region that features two small lakes. The area is separated from the sea by sandy dunes that have also been included in the protected area.
Despite its preserve area status, Alepou is already seeing construction. Vacation complexes and hotels have appeared there. Sooner or later construction is going to harm the richness of Alepou’s nature.
