Tourist information on Blue Bay village in the Crimea
Blue Bay (Goluboi Zaliv) is a small urban village on the southern coast 22 kilometers from Yalta, part of the Big Yalta (Blue Bay on the map of the Crimea). The village is tiny, with a population of about 600 people. It is located near the village of Simeiz, so it is often perceived as part of Simeiz. From Simeiz it is separated by a mountain Cat and South coast highway.
Blue Bay is a very quiet place. Its main advantage is the beach of Blue Bay (although in fact it belongs to the village disputed, rather it is more related to the Simeiz). It really is located in a cosy Bay, and is considered one of the best in the area of Simeiz. The length of the beach just under a kilometre. But for comfortable bathing and relaxing is only suitable portion of the length of about 250 meters, which is near the radio telescope, it is called the beach under the telescope. This is a raw beach without amenities and entertainment, but come here for the day to sunbathe and swim tourists from Simeiz, when the local beaches are too many tourists, and vacationers staying in Katsiveli. The rest of the beach, to sunbathe or to retire, but not for swimming, as there are too large boulders.
In the village there's not much travel except for a few hotels, a campsite, and a couple of cafes along the beach. Shopping, entertainment, tours, need to get in Simeiz. Near the beach is the water Park "Blue Bay". Next is a rock "Wing of the Swan", a popular training site for rock climbers.
