The site is located in north-eastern Bulgaria and bears the name of the cape within its limits. It covers the easternmost part of the Dobrudzha plateau, with altitude from 0 to 150 m. To the west it borders on the town of Kavarna, to the north - on the villages of between Rakovski, Hadzhi Dimitar and Sveti Nikola. To the north-east it’s limit follows the road Sveti Nikola - Kamen Bryag - Tjulenovo up to cape Shabla, including the coast with its adjacent shallow marine area from cape Shabla to the port of Kavarna. The village of Bulgarevo and the tourist resort Russalka are also in its limits. The coast is fringed with vertical cliffs up to 100 m high, with characteristic caves and niches. The vegetation is characterized mainly by the prevailing steppe associations and sparse trees and shrubs. It develops on shallow soils and almost exposed limestone rock. The region between Bulgarevo, cape Kaliakra and the area of Eni Kulak holds the last and best preserved steppe habitats in Bulgaria. They are the result of the combination of specific relief, soils and climatic conditions and it is especially important to conserve them, as they support typical species of the steppe biome. Most of the plants belong to the xerothermal type of formations. The flora of Kaliakra resembles the Crimean flora.
