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.

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. ...
