The pools with medicinal mud and lye that are permitted for use are located in the southern section of Atanasovsko Lake near the administrative building of Black Sea Salt Mines. There are two possible ways to get there:
1. The first one passes through Primorski park (The Sea Garden) of Burgas and following it northwards you can get to the red and black pools on foot and/or by bike. There is limited access for cars because of the production activities of the Black Sea Salt Mines;
2. The second option is to use the main road from Burgas to Varna. This way is accessible only by car. You have to take the turning to Kableshkovo, following the signboards for the Salt Mines – South. After descending along the road, the direction you need to take is to the right and thus you reach the barrier of the Black Sea Salt Mines or the former bunker located on the sea coast.
