Tourist information about Partenit, Crimea
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.
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.

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)
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"
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
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"
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"
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.
