General information about the resort

The Bichvinta (Pitsunda) – resort city on the black sea coast of Abkhazia in the Gagra district, 90 kilometers from the capital Sukhum, and in 60 kilometers from the Psou checkpoint on the border of the Russian Federation (Pitsunda on the map of Abkhazia). From all other resorts of Abkhazia Pitsunda differs in that it is set back from the main highway of the country, the Sukhumi highway, why staying here is one of the best on the coast. Also Pitsunda resort are the nearby areas and resorts Alakhadze (Alajaji), Citrus, Poultry, Dairy, and LZA (fish factory), Agaraki, Golden Bay, Musser. Almost the whole town depends on tourism, so this is one of the few places in Abkhazia, where the local residents are trying to improve the conditions for stay of tourists.

Rest in Pitsunda

Pitsunda can be called the most comfortable place to stay in Abkhazia. This applies both to the month, and to nearby towns and resorts that are traditionally considered part of Pitsunda. In our view (authors website) this is the only place in Abkhazia where you can really feel the spirit and comfort of the resort town: clean and well maintained, with a developed tourist infrastructure. Of course, the devastation here is too short, but at least she's not on the same scale as, for example, in Gagra, and it is felt that at least some order is induced.

Almost the entire coast here the beaches. They are mostly pebble and pebble, on the East of the city in the Gulf of Pitsunda Bay beaches gradually become mixed sandy-pebble (the village of Agarti and Golden Bay). Further in the Bay Musser pebble beach. However, for a beach holiday you should take along a special beach shoes for swimming, as without it to go into the water on cobblestones is very painful, what can we say about games on the beach. The water is very clear, and the depth and the sunset in the water is comfortable, not too sharp. On land here there are excellent conditions: the entire coast is surrounded by greenery, beautiful slender cypresses and the Pitsunda pine famous Pitsunda pine grove.

Пицунда, Абхазия Relax on the beach in Pitsunda

As for infrastructure, all the conditions for rest are available here, but don't expect from Pitsunda-level resort world, or even the Russian level. There are a lot of hotels and resorts, guest houses and the private sector, but objectively is to say that price does not always match the quality.

Weather and tourist seasons in Pitsunda, when to go

Tourist season in Sochi lasts from may to October, inclusive, nevertheless, the seasons and the popularity of the resort among tourists varies from month to month:

  • May. The air at the end of may is already warm, you can even sunbathe, but the sea is still too cool for comfortable swimming with children is not recommended. Still keep in mind that the tourist infrastructure is still not fully operational at this time: many cafes and entertainment are only being prepared for opening.
  • Jun. In June, especially in the second half, the sea is warm. At this time, you can come to rest even with the kids
  • In July and August. The best season for rest, but at that time the largest influx of tourists and rising prices. But not many tourists to avoid visiting this time.
  • In September and October. End the holiday season and school holidays, and the velvet season begins. Most vacationers are leaving, prices are falling. But the weather is still very comfortable to stay until the beginning of October. It's the perfect time to relax, but in the second half of October gets too cool, so better plan the trip in the first half.

It's all in comparison.
For those who have been in many countries, there is nothing outstanding there.
Well, that's OK, we have a field of comparison is much broader. ...

Was in Abkhazia in 2015, traveled by car with Russian numbers. Given the fact that I previously had read "horror stories" from the forums about Abkhazia, and plus are a motorist who is trying not to violate traffic rules, then after passing the border (stood for 30 minutes on a weekday in late August), I went strictly by the signs... but given the fact that it is not on the road is not clear the situation with the characters, and frankly all the trouble, it is not clear WHERE the town BEGINS, where it ENDS. So drove everywhere 40km per hour, away from sin. Saw a lot of stopped cars at the posts of traffic police workers, and they were all with the Russian numbers. All would be nothing if it were not sharp konstrastom with the ABKHAZ, they have to go 140 on an opposite through the double solid and honk friend gaytsy is normal, the feeling that there are all kin to each other, go on Abkhazian rooms, consider the rules for you do not write. Really a bunch of times cars overtaking into oncoming traffic where double continuous (and this is when there was a restriction 90).
Some people gave advice, you are here for the night don't get up, then the machine Park we have hot molodesh, glass hit, can steal things... thank you damn, of course I understand that good namereniyami, I normally could not sleep, the whole trip stressful...
Apogee was a trip to new Athos monastery before climbing the mountain is a sign of a white circle, travel is limited... stopped, went to ask a local which way, everywhere I read that on a car ride, and women are on the market in a voice they say Yes, you go that way, I do not care what the sign is all go, don't worry, we're not check gaytsov no, you go darling. One is said, did not believe, went further when he heard the same thing 6 times, and I saw the cars there, heaps ...

Was not until 2018, in Abkhazia, and after reading your post it seemed to me that the situation on the roads became better. Problems with the signs of the start/end of settlements have not noticed, and in General the roads are good, just I hate these ugly bumps when 90 need to sharply reduce the speed to 20 :suicide . And with Parking trouble at old: a stranger should not be put where it is possible locally to pay Parking, and all this in the open right under the noses of cops. ...

Hello! Who like to arrive with a link to the border with Abkhazia and after. It is more profitable to take? And is it possible at Adler airport to purchase a SIM card for use in Abkhazia? Thanks in advance) ...
admin 30 July, 2019

No matter any of the two operators take, there is no difference. About airport can't tell always by car went. Only one note: immediately after crossing the border of the Russian SIM cards do not use, communications from America will cost, damn it. ...

Now stationed in Abkhazia under the New Athos, the village of Primorsko. Came here ( on their own, without a vehicle)to receive medical treatment. Crossed the border in 20 minutes, without personal inspection. 10 minutes of hydrogen sulfide, the source of healing mud. Highly recommend for joints and blood purification. What about respect, do not worry, here all have wifi. The SIM card put in airplane mode using 5 km after the border. The money is not removed... spoke calmly by telephone immediately after crossing the border( like a house). A lot of minibuses, the fare is cheap. Before Athos was 200 RUB., 1 hour 20 mins with a breeze. All Abkhazians are very friendly, always ready to help and give. If you do not stay in a hotel, very cheap. The private sector 350-500 RUB 2-bed room per day. You can negotiate with food. The food they serve is phenomenal! All a good journey. ...

Was in Abkhazia last year. Experience the best! the food is delicious, the people are friendly (contrary to rumors). And the sea...it's just a thrill. clean, unlike the dirty Anapa. Going to visit the country again this year. Many do not have time to look...

And I on the contrary came in. Last year went 40 thousand left there 3 weeks. I liked everything. It is clear that the service is not developed yet, but I try and it is captivating. ...

Last year there 8 times dangled from Adler. To rent a house there was. Pros - sea, nature, sparsely populated, the nostalgia for the Soviet Union, the sights. Minus all the abandoned, bus, driving on the road dangerous, there are few shops, pretty boring. There was a bad incident in Sukhumi with local security forces in plain clothes, passed the house of Moscow, and I caught up with the car, it stopped me abses - took me for zakladka drugs:(, found a common language, even before the station was taken, on the transfer in Psou on this day, our border guards at the exit for no reason at all asked where I'm from (town of Abkhazia).
In my opinion the best location in Pitsunda, where Sands (fishery) and in Athens, they say there are still musra, but haven't been there yet. There are many stray dogs (lying crushed on the road and walk along the beaches), cows walk on the track, a lot of wine and chacha. Syringes on beaches. Turkish radio stations are audible. Breathe irregularly to Turkey. Echoes of war, all monuments and obelisks. Exotic still the same. But, in my opinion there mentally and spiritual people. And more freedom - there are no such restrictions in Russia, border crosses, as if a stone from his shoulders. Will go there again. For extreme relaxation. ...
