Where better to go for a vacation with children in Crimea
In Crimea, a lot of resorts and beaches, but not all of them suitable for comfortable rest with children. Unfortunately, objectively, we should admit that the infrastructure for the rest of the Peninsula is very weak, and especially this sensitive children. It is possible to be on a beautiful beach with a warm sea, but in the absence of children's entertainment this holiday will be a real torture for the children and will be spoiled for parents. Let's see, where do you go on vacation in the Crimea with the children, and where a child should not go.
The best beaches for children
If you and your children most importantly – the beaches and the sea, and you are willing to put up with the lack of attractions, poor infrastructure and lack of facilities, then, of course, the choice to start with the beach.
In Crimea there are sandy and pebble beaches.
Sandy beaches in Crimea
Of course, children have traditionally been more like sandy beaches rather than pebble. Find sandy beaches, you can:
Pebble beaches in Crimea
If for some reason your kids prefer pebbles, not sand, you will approach the resorts of the southern coast of the Crimea: Gurzuf, Partenit, Rock, beaches of the Big Yalta and Yalta, Sudak, Novyy Svet.
Even safe for children important depth and water temperature. Just out of competition the beaches of the Azov sea, which is very small and well heated. However, in the early season (may and June) the Azov sea is still too cool, because North is Black, but in high season the water is very warm. Is also very attractive beaches of Evpatoria with clean fine sand and well-developed infrastructure. In Yalta on the popular children's beaches from the coast you can step back a hundred meters, and the water barely comes to the waist. That is why Yalta is always a huge number of tourists with children.
Where is the best infrastructure for children
To make children happy during the holidays not only sea and beaches, but also entertainment on many resorts of the Crimea, but, unfortunately, not at all. If you want to treat the kids rides, trips to the cinema, Dolphinarium or water Park, is constantly in the atmosphere of fun and celebration should be very carefully approach the choice of location. Here's our ranking of the most suitable places for children where they will not be bored:
Ideal for children, perhaps the best in the Crimea. There are a lot of children's entertainment, the infrastructure is adjusted young tourists, a lot of children's sanatoriums. The beach here is sandy, season to clean. Perhaps the only disadvantage of the index – not too many natural beauties around the steppe, little greenery and no scenic mountains. Oh, and, the accommodation prices here are quite high.
The most developed and popular for recreation city of the Peninsula, but for children it has everything you could wish for. On the waterfront in the center of a lot of amusement and constant fun, so the atmosphere of fun and celebration is assured. Also in Yalta is a zoo, water Park, aquarium and much more. Of the minuses, perhaps, only pebbly beaches, which will appeal not every child. Prices for accommodation are lower than in Yalta.
In Sudak, a good quay, on which and near which there are rides and a children's amusement Park, there is a Dolphinarium and a water Park. Entertainment in General is not very much, but in season there is an atmosphere of celebration and fun, in addition, the city is clean and well maintained. You can go on a tour of the Sudak fortress, taxi ride in the cozy village of Novy Svet and walk there even available for the kids walking the trail Golitsyn, and those that are older, to go Hiking on mount Karaul-Oba. The beaches in Sudak pebble, mixed with sand.
Feodosiya is quite suitable for families with children, especially if you stay near the center. There is a children's Park, offer simple rides, a promenade, but even Sudak Feodosiya inferior. The beaches here are pebble mixed with sand.
Big Yalta includes the resorts of Gurzuf, Gaspra, Koreiz, Mishor, Alupka, Simeiz, foros and others. All of this is a small and peaceful resort towns in which almost nothing for kids (not counting the town of Gurzuf, day of the children's camp Artek), and the atmosphere is predominantly rural. But what is good with the centre of Yalta, these towns are connected by public transport, and if to live not too far from the city center, you can get out to have some fun in the city. But keep in mind that the buses run not so often, and comfortable to call them very difficult.
The settlement Zaozernoe near Yevpatoria, a 25-minute bus ride away. Here quiet environment, the infrastructure as a whole to stay there. The beach is sandy and very long. But with children's entertainment is really bad. Fortunately, thanks to the proximity and accessibility of Yalta by public transport, it is possible to consider a drink as something between a quiet village and developed resorts of Evpatoria.
About the children's camp Artek in hurzuf in Yalta not to mention impossible. But if you stay in Gurzuf, access to entertainment Artek your children to not be able to. Everything in Artek, goes only to the children of Artek, and beyond, in the village for children entertainment quite a bit.

More tips for choosing a place to stay with children

It is mainly some of the resorts of the southern coast of the Crimea, from the village and ending with Sevastopol. With young kids (under 5 years) in such places would be difficult.
- Baby food. Even if you are willing to live with them in tents on the beach or in the village house, do not forget about nutrition. Unfortunately, some developed five years ago the resorts of today are in ruins, and to buy baby food would be a big problem.
