WHAT YOU CAN VISIT IN THE DANUBE DELTA STARTING FROM DELTA PARADISE RESORT: 

1. SULINA - the story of the old lighthouse, maritime cemetery and the Palace of the Danube European Commission

SULINA - Former city of sailors, adventurers and pirates, Sulina is located in the most easterly point of mainland Europe, accessible only by water because it is not directly linked to the Romanian road network. The air full of history and mystery of this town can be found by visiting the maritime cemetery, the two lighthouses, the churches (St. Alexander and St. Nicholas) and the Palace of the European Danube Commission. Sulina is the sunniest town in Romania! You cannot leave Sulina without a dip in the Black Sea Sulina beach that is considered the last unspoiled beach in Europe. The beach is 150 meters wide with an extremely fine sand, filtered by the Danube and the sea is not salty as in the south coastline of the Black Sea, but has a sweet taste.

10.LAKE PUIU AND THE RED LAKE - are considered the heart of the Danube Delta and some of the best fishing spots in the Delta because they are large and deep lakes and the channel between them is placed parallel to the direction of the Danube flow has a strong current, which oxygenates the water and attracts a lot of fishes. 

11. SAINT GEORGE - where Danube embraces the Black Sea to the shores of the widest beach in Europe (2 km)

SAINT GEORGE – the Black Sea beach is the widest beach in Europe (2 km) and you can reach the beach on foot in about 20-30 minutes or with "trocariciul", a tractor with a trailer specially designed to transport people. The Lighthouse of St. George has a height of 50 m and is designed to warn the ships when they approach the Danube mouths as there are many submarine sandbanks that made the navigation dangerous. The signaling is done with two white flashes every 7.2 seconds. Flowing into the Black Sea through the arm of St. George, the Danube meets BUIVAL HEAD (left side), one of the most dynamic natural processes areas in the Danube Delta, subject to erosion and displacement in the Black Sea.

12. SACALIN ISLAND - The newest island in Romania

On the right side of St. George Arm, is located the newest island in Romania: SACALIN ISLAND. Due to the alluvial deposits brought by the Danube, in a few years, it is expected that the island will merge with the mainland in the west, closing Melea lagoon and transforming it into a kind of a coastline lake. In the south of the island is the wreck of the tug Tuzla, strand by 70s.

13. ENISALA FORTRESS - the only surviving medieval fortress in Dobrogea

ENISALA FORTRESS – The Enisala military fortress was part of the Genoese colony chain which contained the Delta cities: Chilia and Likostomion. In the period 1397-1416 the city of Enisala was a part of the defenses of the Romanian Land during the reign of Mircea the Elder. After Dobrogea was conquest by the Turks in 1419-1420, the fortress became an Ottoman military garrison. Subsequently, following the Turks submission beyond the mouth of the Danube to the White Fortress (Cetatea Albă) and Chilia (1484) and the formation of the sand cordons that separates Lake Razim from the Black Sea, the city was abandoned in the XVI century, because wasn’t matching with the Turkish politics and economics. It name comes from the Turkish word castle Yeni Sale which means "new village". The hill on which the Enisala Fortress stands, offers a superb view of Lake Razim and Popina Island.
