Sulina (Romanian pronunciation: [suˈlina]) is a town and free port in Tulcea County, Romania, at the mouth of the Sulina branch of the Danube. It is the easternmost point of Romania and of the continental European Union.

Once a prosperous port and important shipyard, from 1856 to 1939 the seat of the Danube Commission, Sulina has become a disadvantaged location.

The reason is that the town has no road access, the only way to reach it is by boat that leaves Tulcea and goes along the Sulina branch of the Danube. This keeps tourists at the seaside at low numbers.

Sulina is between the Danube and the Black Sea and its location gives perfect access to both the Black Sea's beach and to visit the Danube Delta.
