The total income of the Bulgarian state from beach concessions in 2011 amounted to BGN 11.715 M (about EUR 6 M).

The figure emerged from the government's annual report on beach concessions adopted by the Borisov Cabinet Wednesday.

Thus, in 2011, the Bulgarian state made BGN 11.7 M from a total of 60 concessions of Black Sea beaches, including interest and penalty payments.
