General information

Пляж Партенита The beach in Partenit

Partenit (Partenit) – urban village on the South coast of the Crimea, about halfway between Alushta and Yalta (Partenit on the map of the Crimea). Is among the popular beach resorts of Crimea. It is a small village with a population of just over 6,000 people, is part of Big Alushta.

Partenit – is quite famous among tourists, and there are several decent large resort, including a departmental sanatorium "Crimea" of the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation. From other resorts it is a cosy and clean, lovely views, and high prices. But it is necessary to say frankly that for independent tourists is not the best place. Primarily, this is due to the inaccessibility of the local beaches. There are few of them, and available to all visitors, only two of them, and is not the best. On other beaches you can get, but they have the status of health, and will have to issue passes for an additional fee. Another minus – no promenade for an evening stroll, so in the evenings you can either walk around the town centre around the bus station or to sit in one of the cafes. What else is inconvenient, especially for aged people, the resort is on a slope, the terrain is mountainous. In the end, to move around the city and get to the beaches have to constantly rising uphill, then down.

Партенит The entrance to the territory with a pass

Attractions in Partenit quite a bit: the Park of Ayvazovsky, mountain Ayu-Dag (Bear mountain) and a stone Museum, Dolphinarium. The only thing that will save here from the deadly boredom of fans of interesting places – tours to different corners of Crimea, which can be purchased in local travel agencies. You can also take public transport and explore Yalta, Alushta, Simferopol.

Infrastructure in Partenit for tourists there, but all very modest. In the centre of the village, which was formed around the end of the bus station, there are shops and market, cafes and restaurants, sold tours, but the waterfront, as we mentioned, no. Hotels are just a few pieces, but immediately upon arrival at the bus station for rent housing. From entertainment to mention only Dolphinarium and the Park Aivazovsky.

Weather, tourist seasons in Partenit

To go to Sochi the best in the period from July to September. It was at this time the water warms up enough for a comfortable beach holiday, and almost no rain. You can also visit here in may-June or be delayed until October, but the comfort would no longer be the same. In the remaining months here to do absolutely nothing – it's too cold for a beach holiday, but more to do here and nothing.

Beaches in Partenit

With the beaches here are a real problem, so if their cleanliness, accessibility and beauty are important for you, it is best to choose a different resort, or settle in a hotel/sanatorium with its beach. Access to the shore almost everywhere restricted to the hotels and sanatoriums (medical beaches), and to get them you can either detours or for a fee when making a pass.

  • Beach city (Central)

    Городской пляж, Партенит

    City beach on the map

    This is the only public beach in the city center. It is quite small (length on the strength of 100 metres), and is a 15-minute walk from the center, but will have to come down and back to overcome the heavy lifting. No infrastructure they entertainment here, just changing rooms and sun loungers to rent. There is a conditional embankment, but to do it to nothing.

    The beach itself was a pebble, is chock full of vacationers, it is often contaminated with debris from the sea. And, of course, spoils the entire look of the concrete, rebar, boat dock, and breakwater, although almost everywhere on the southern coast of Crimea. However, to swim and sunbathe here.

  • The beach of hotel "Europe"

    Пляж Европа, Партенит

    Beach "Europe" on the map

    The hotel Europe is located far from the center on the other side of the city on the North-East. To reach it on foot, would first have to overcome a long long ascent and then a descent. Although he is on site, go on it can anyone access is not restricted.

    The beach here is small, relatively sandy, partially with pebbles. He could be a good place, but they spoil the concrete column on which stands the hotel.

  • "Town" beaches in the North-East

    Поселковый пляж, Партенит

    "Town" beaches on the map

    Just behind the hotel "Europe" begins a long chain of beaches along the seafront, separated by breakwaters. This is the public beaches. On the waterfront and in the district nothing, not even a seedy café. On the beach even there are no sun loungers to rent. The beach itself is pebbly, the strip is very narrow. We can recommend going here if you want to avoid holiday crowds on the Central beach, but to go here very far. To stay here no place, no shelter.

  • The beach of the sanatorium "Aivazovsky"

    The beach of the sanatorium "Aivazovsky" on the map

    It is illegally closed to unauthorized access of the beach. You can get it by paying 200 rubles for the entrance to the Park "Ayvazovsky". If you are ashamed of the scandals, you can try to go through security "in a brazen" because the money charged for visiting the Park, not the beach. Sometimes it works, sometimes you can go to the beaches around, but nerves will pull decently.

    The beach here is quite good: clean and well maintained, there are a couple of cafes, changing rooms, toilets, sun loungers, parasols, some entertainment. Pebbles on the shore.

  • The beach of sanatorium "Crimea"

    The beach of sanatorium "Krym" on the map

    Sanatorium "Crimea" is departmental, defense Ministry, and the most problematic for independent tourists. It can be accessed with a pass, but they then paid, then free, then do not let anyone. In the 2015 season, the beach access was free, but the passes that are issued for 50 rubles (i.e. you can only get for a fee). It is necessary to first apply with a passport and a photocopy for the admission, because it to wait until the next day to enter the territory. In General, it is not a comfortable place for solo travelers. However, the beach here is well equipped, has a sunshade and deck chairs, some entertainment.

Hotels in Partenit, housing

Hotels here are just a few pieces, the grip and one hand to count them. Room rates are very high. It is much cheaper to stay at a rented apartment or room that can be rented immediately upon arrival on the destination bus stations from private owners, who greet arriving tourists.

Settles best in the bus Terminus, but not in the "Aivazovskaya", otherwise the beach will walk very far and hard. Moreover, the whole infrastructure, i.e. the centre, is concentrated near the end.

When you search for hotels in Crimea you'll likely get a message - "Not found" options. This limitation because of the sanctions. But around it and book accommodation in Crimea is very simple, you only need to enable the checkbox "travel for work". Read more here - How to book a hotel in Crimea despite the sanctions.

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 ...
