    The lagoon is located some 50 meters from our diving center in Sozopol, at 31 Odesa Str. and is one of the best places for beginners and also for training of Open Water Divers. Since we have scuba dived here  for several years – the fish in the lagoon know us and know we will feed them; they have become part of the underwater show  and come to us to get their daily portion of sea snails. The depth gradually drops and reaches  7 meters.
