Half Moon Island | Polar Unbound

Half Moon Island

A tiny island north of the Burgas Peninsula, Half Moon Island has developed a reputation for cuteness due to the bird colonies that make their home on the island. Of particular importance are the chinstrap penguins. Barely over two feet tall these tiny, flightless birds have been winning hearts long before Roy and Silo earnestly tried to hatch a rock at the Central Park Zoo in 2004. Other birds, such as the blue eyed shag and the south polar skua make their homes here and whales are often seen patrolling the shores. A mile long walking path grants explorers a close view of the wildlife and breathtaking surrounding scenery.
