The beach and the landscaped Park is a Quiet Bay located approximately midway between Koktebel and Ordzhonikidze (Quiet Bay on the map). This is a popular place for those who comes on rest in Koktebel, but prefers sandy and uncrowded beaches. Come here on a long stay in tents, or just come to relax on the beach for day tourists staying in Koktebel.

In our opinion, this is the best place for bathing and rest in Koktebel. Here small sand, clean and calm water, in all directions offer scenic views of the mountains and hills. The length of continuous sandy beach about a mile, and it stretches almost to the village of Ordzhonikidze, punctuated by rocky headlands. On the West side of the Cove ends in an outstanding deep-sea and protects the beach from waves of the Cape Chameleon, which, incidentally, is itself a landmark. On the other hand another Cape. This water is much calmer, the waves weaker, which is why the Bay is called "quiet." Depth is small, the water warms up well.

No infrastructure on the beach in the Quiet Bay, no. Until 2016 here broke a summer cafe, crashed car camping and the campground, there were a lot of people. And until 2014 for entry generally took the money. But in 2016, the new authorities of the Peninsula undertook to restore order in the landscape Park. Now here have strict attendance rules. Entry to the Park and to the beach is prohibited, on the road, put a barrier and a checkpoint with security. The car can now Park in the Parking lot near the checkpoint, and then go to the beach on foot. It is still possible to put up tents and camp, but now charge $ 80 per double tent per night, 150 rubles – for four, 130 rubles for six, If you call in here on the SUV or ATV to detour the checkpoint, there is a chance of running into an administrative fine. The rules forbid you to cut down trees, to fish, to tear the plants, and even start a fire. To cook food on a gas burner or in the grill.

Inconvenience to travelers bring a small amount of shade (trees are, but a little), lack of toilets, electricity, and indeed any infrastructure. For trash containers.

Fresh water here, but there are two sources where you can get water to wash, and to drink it is not suitable. One source is a thin trickle, lies next to the road before the checkpoint. It is very difficult to get due to vegetation and marshy around the shores, besides it is every year becoming less. Another source is at the foot of a hill in the Eastern part of the beach (the position of the spring on the map).

🕐 Time of work: round the clock

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: free

🚶 How to get: this Quiet Bay is located three kilometers from the center of Koktebel (Quiet Bay on the map). Numerous trails and a dirt road lead to the Bay, and walk for 30-60 minutes. It is better not to go along the shore and through the fields on top, or on a dirt road for vehicles. If you go on the beach, have to climb a steep cliff osypayuschiesya. By car you can easily get on a dirt road the signs, but the car will have to Park near the checkpoint, and then about a mile to the beach.

Also in a Quiet Bay can be reached on foot from the village of Ordzhonikidze on the trail, but this route is longer and heavier than from Koktebel, will take time around 2 hours.

Hello friends! Tell me in Feodosia nice beach and hotel with the kids. Where better to stay to the sand and entertainment for children nearby. ...

Hello! IMHO, a place in Feodosia no. I have their children in Feodosia no luck. If children go to the Crimea, my choice - only Evpatoria, or alternatively Azov sea in Schelkino. At least in Yalta for a few days to have fun, but not for a beach holiday, I think for children it is not. This is my point of view on a beach holiday in the Crimea, it is not imposed on anyone, you asked. ...

Hope, Theodosius I also like, in some sense, but that doesn't mean she will love the children. Of course, children often unassuming and warm sea has enough for happiness. But the question was, where the sand nearby, and entertainment. But the entertainment on the Golden beach and close by for the children just did not. Rest in Feodosia and go to rest on a sandy beach on a crowded bus, who go by the way very unstable and rare, not very nice. You can take a taxi, but it is not affordable for everyone. And in this case, the question arises, why, then, to rest in such a place, if on the beach will have to travel by bus or taxi. For me it's not a vacation. So I in Evpatoria. There is a beach in the center and much perepolneny in the season, but you can even walk to the outskirts to walk, and there is much more room on the beaches. ...

Theodosius the great at any time of the year.To have fun here not worse , than in Yalta.It's may , the weather here much better than in the highlands, in Feodosia yesterday was 26градусов and the sun , and in Sudak and Alushta is 15 and the clouds, the water is now 17 degrees but the week will warm up to 20 .The gorgeous beaches. And not really that good a beach it is necessary to take a taxi, settle close to the black sea promenade, the best beach there.All the campers who have something to compare, who rested in the Crimea , returned to Feodosia, and say that here is better.View a map of where the clean water in the Crimea, and everyone will understand where to go . ...

This year checkpoint on the road in a Quiet Bay is still running? Or at the request of tourists entry is already free? Very convenient to access the beach by car. ...

PPC still works and Park on site Parking, fine. Although you can pass other paths bypassing the checkpoint, I wouldn't, because the Rangers or I don't know how they go Commission, photographed the vehicles and issue fines, then send in the mail. But at the checkpoint are allowed to drive to camp on the beach for unloading/loading, and then return and leave the car near the checkpoint in the Parking lot. ...
