Crimea is still one of the most popular resorts among Russians. This is explained by its convenient location. The coast can be reached by train or car, or by plane. In addition, the Crimean resorts are constantly being refined, and already now there are enough modern hotels and clean beaches.
Crimean beaches - mini-overview of the main coastal resorts
Most of the beaches equipped with sun loungers, where you can not only swim and sunbathe, but also have lunch, ride a jet ski, play beach volleyball, are located near cities and large villages. These are Sevastopol, Koktebel, Sudak, Evpatoria, Novy Svet, Lazarevskoe, Yalta, Alushta, Gurzuf.
On the western coast of Crimea, the beaches are sandy - it is very good to relax there with children. In the south, they are rocky. They attract with unearthly landscapes, unique nature, mild climate. When choosing the most beautiful and cleanest beach, first of all, you need to decide what exactly you want. If there is sand and a gentle entrance to the sea, it is worth considering the west coast. If the unique microclimate is southern.
There is no need to pre-book real estate on the Crimean coast. If you do not have special requirements, you can find accommodation - a hotel or a room in a private house, even in season, upon arrival at the beach you like.
The cleanest beaches in Crimea - what to look for
It is quite easy to choose a clean, practically virgin beach in Crimea. The main thing is to settle away from big cities and towns, where tourists mainly stay. Most of these places are on the southern coast of Crimea, between the capes Aya and Ai-Todor. In these places, the sea is incredibly clear and strikes with the depth of color. True, there are no equipped beaches with sand and sun loungers. There are small rocky coves with cobblestone or pebble beaches. It is better to swim there in special shoes so as not to slip on wet stones.
The cleanliness of the beach depends not only on the number of tourists, but also on the season. In the hot summer, algae begin to actively grow in the sea, which are then thrown ashore. Especially fastidious, this can ruin the rest.
There are also clean beautiful sandy beaches. They are located in the area of the former closed village of Mirny. Now there, on the spit, hotels have been built where you can rent a cozy room. This option is good because the village with all the infrastructure is very close. In the market you can buy fresh and inexpensive homemade products, there is a hospital, pharmacies, supermarkets.
At the same time, the village is known to very few, therefore, even in high season, the surrounding beaches are clean and almost deserted. Another plus of Mirny is the presence of an artificial salt lake. It is separated from the sea by a sand spit, on which there are mini-hotels. The water in the lake is warm even in the off-season - in May, June, at the end of September.
