General information

Пляжи в Лазурном

Azure village is a small village on the southern coast of Crimea in six kilometers South from Alushta (Cote d ' on the map of the Crimea). Administratively belongs to Alushta (part of the big Alushta), and is often perceived as one of the far beaches, though in fact it is an independent resort area. The village is very tiny, it has a permanent population of barely 150 people, but in high season the population is increasing in several times, of course due to the tourists.

Rest in azure

In the Azure primarily tourists who dream of a carefree time in uncrowded and quiet, with warm and clean sea. This cozy resort has long been popular with parents with their young children and also young people prefer discos and stylish Nightclubs picnics and accommodation in tents or cheap guest houses. Shallow waters, no big waves, and affordable rental housing – the main advantages of azure.

Passionate fans of snorkeling fashionable varieties of swimming with a snorkel and mask, and a lover of long rides and exciting trips will not be disappointed if you choose to stay in condos. Although the stretch of sea off the coast is not rich variety of life, the clarity of the water gives swimmers a great opportunity to observe the life of crabs and fish. Lovers of Hiking or Cycling, in turn, have a chance to meet on the tracks laid by travelers through pine and oak forests, graceful deer. If you're not lucky, you can simply admire the modest beauty of the picturesque surroundings.

The disadvantages of azure can be attributed almost complete lack of infrastructure (even for food better to go to Alushta), not very beautiful and convenient beaches (although the water is very clean), and high elevation when moving through the village and out to sea (always have to go up and down).

The Beaches Of The Cote D

Пляжи в Лазурном

Despite the glory of a perfect beach resort, really good fans of beach holidays will be a slight disappointment. Several pebble beaches, the azure can just sneak one the hard way – on concrete and rock steps, a few stairs leading down to the coast on a hilly slope. Moreover, vacationers have two ways: through the territory of the unfinished boarding house; the narrow road past the sanctuary.

Built in the Soviet time, the breakwaters divide the beach strewn with imported shingle at a few sites, and not add to their beauty. But water amazes tourists with its transparency. The remaining areas of the waterfront and located not far to the South (in the direction of Yalta) nudist beach covered with large pebbles and big boulders. In addition to concrete walls, strengthening the Bank, any other equipment not here. Travelers also should not rely on the sun beds or any other amenities.

Attractions and entertainment

Tourists, who are not representing their holidays without a visit to Nightclubs, dinners in restaurants, shopping malls or supermarkets, should refrain from trips to Azure. None of the above, as well as cinemas, pharmacies or bars here. Buy groceries at the small grocery store and visit the outdoor cafes, which can not be called homelike, is what little they can afford guests of the resort. Typically for shopping and recreation, vacationers go to the nearby Alushta. The sights of the village can hardly be attributed little interest for tourists, the winery, nothing more here. But you can reach Alushta and get acquainted with its attractions (see attractions of Alushta).

admin May 27, 2016

Thanks for the feedback. Soon information about Alushta and the surrounding area will be renewed and will become even more. And yet, if you are looking for in these parts a place with a quiet, sparsely populated beaches, I recommend another look at Solnechnogorsk. Personally, I like it more than fishing, as something more comfortable out there, the beach is well-groomed, not as "dead" as in fishing. However if you on your car and tent in Solnechnogorskoye no normal camping as in fishing. And not to be confused with solnechnogorskaya Ulitsa. These villages are near, almost merged into one, but the beachfront in Malorechenskoye very tiny. This is my IMHO, of course, just recommend. ...

The rest chose to 2018 in the Crimea. Long thought, in what city or village to go, which hotel or hotel to choose, read many reviews, listened to the advice of friends and decided to stay at a wonderful place called the Utes at the hotel Santa Barbara 3**. I want to say, earlier, was vacationing abroad - Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Spain, in the Crimea, in Yalta, Alushta, Gurzuf, traveled on tours the whole of Crimea, but such a heavenly place not seen anywhere else. The village itself attracts with its beauty and atypical. The Utes near Alushta, in my opinion, even, is the town of Alushta to Yalta 30 minutes, i.e. convenient location, You will be able to get in the direction of Alushta is very fast, and in the direction of Yalta. A tiny village located on the mountain attracts with its coziness, little Italy. Who would have thought that in Crimea exists???)))
Regarding, hotels and accommodation. Very responsive, friendly and welcoming staff. Feel every day care of yourself! We lived in a room with a sea view. Every day you Wake up with the sea, fall asleep with the sea! Fantastic! The hotel called Santa Barbara 3**, one of the most famous hotels of the Cliff, the village itself is often called Santa Barbara. The hotel itself is located right on the waterfront, i.e. out of the hotel and here's the sea, the beach! The room has everything you need. Pleased with daily maid service, change of linen and towels every three days! At the front Desk administrators will always help, prompt, advise and not least important, will give You their smiles and warmth. We had two meals - Breakfast and lunch. Breakfast and lunch we had at the restaurant Santa Barbara over the sea, the restaurant is right on ...
