The Beaches Of Yalta
Overview of Yalta beaches
The beaches in Yalta entirely sand, with fine Golden sand. And this is not a shell, as, for example, on the Azov coast, and the real sand. The beach is very long, only within the city it stretches for four kilometres. However, it is available for all guests, only half and the other was busy healing sanatoriums and children's camps, where access is restricted. The remaining two kilometers in the peak season is not enough, and vacationers are sitting on each other's heads. If you get such a close proximity is not satisfied, it is easy to reach by city bus or tram to the outskirts of the city, where much freer. And if you want to be quite alone on deserted beaches, can be reached from the bus station of Yalta to its suburbs or neighbouring towns.
Within the city beach accessible to everyone, no fee, but there are several areas where access is legally restricted. Children's and medical beaches belonging to the resort. All the rest are open to everyone and completely free (at least officially running in 2016 season us in Yalta was observed).
The quality and cleanliness of beaches, it is a controversial question. In General, the beaches in Yalta are removed, but it is only to bad weather, as on shore throws out a heap of algae, which then begin to rot under the scorching sun and a very strong smell. Besides, at the beginning and at the end of the season, take it very slowly, usually limited to the most populous areas in the center.
Another issue Evpatoria beaches rock bottom: although there's sand everywhere, over time, to the shore the waves washed up a lot of stones. The bottom is also trying to clean, but early in the season it happens that the water just not go, so many sharp rocks hidden under the water.
The depth here is just perfect for children. The bottom is very slowly disappearing under the water, and even the small children can safely move away from the coast for tens of meters.

All the beaches of Yalta on the list
In the center of town is a very extensive embankment of Gorky with entertainment, cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, and here stretches a chain of beaches stretching almost a mile. Almost the entire tourist life boils here, so the closer to the waterfront you choose a place to stay, the closer to the centre of fun and entertainment will be.
Unfortunately, the beaches in the centre of the perfect difficult. It so happened that the coast is divided into sections by fences, and walks along a sandy beach here will not work. And the beauty and comfort it does not add, and to decide to restore order local authorities is apparently not ready. However, the Central beaches are the most developed: there are all the traditional entertainment: bananas, hydrocycles, parachutes etc. are Offered to rent sunbeds and umbrellas, but in the midst of their season was not enough as the space. From the sun to hide under stationary roofs-sheds, but the place under them, too, is in deficit. Changing rooms, showers and toilets on the beach in the center a little.
