Tourist information about the village of Sand in the Crimea
Sand (Pesochnoe) is a small village in the Northern part of the Kerch Peninsula of the Crimea in the Leninsky district on the coast of the Azov sea (on the map). The permanent population of less than 200 people. Centrally located in Kazantip Bay, which is part of the sea of Azov. The nearest large settlements of the Crimea: Kerch (55 km), Schelkino (24 km). From Simferopol airport to Sand almost 200 kilometers.
Infrastructure Sand underdeveloped – typical of small villages. Here is not even a normal road and not serviced regular transport. There's a tiny village shop with products and commodities, and in the nearby village market. Nothing more of no infrastructure. However, there are several lodges and guest houses, and a separate category of tourists coming here purposefully. And they seek for two reasons: the remoteness from civilization and deserted long sandy beaches.
The village itself consists of one street and is not near the beach, and a kilometer from him. The road to the beach passes through the pine forest to the steppe part of the Crimea. But, unfortunately, in recent years, the path to the beach had turned into some kind of landfill, thanks to the tourists who litter is not removed. The situation is similar on the beach: tourists from the village as well as MPs your trash is not removed and remains in the sand until it will not take water.
The beaches in the area Sand is one of the main reasons because of which travel to this part of the Crimea. The sandy beach here stretches continuously for 30 miles! However, in fairness it should be noted that the beaches are not very sandy, and mixed with broken shells, and more shells than sand. The water is warm enough for swimming in late may, unlike the South coast, where it can be cold even in late June. Conditions for bathing small children a good, small depth of tens of meters from the shore. But there is a peculiarity: first, near the shore the bottom sharply goes under the water and then back up. Be prepared for the waves because the wind blows often. The water is turbid because of suspended sand and clay. Beach no entertainment, and amenities. The only exception is the equipped beach of the sanatorium "Azov", three kilometers from Sandy, but the facilities there available only to clients of the boarding house.

Options for accommodation here is low: only a couple of lodges, and then running each season because of the small number of tourists. The service is minimal, only basic accommodation in small, simple rooms and meals. Local residents also offered their homes for accommodation, prices from 200 rubles per person per day.
Also not to mention about another place to stay, a kind of "reservation" for tourists – the hotel "Azov". It is located three kilometers from the village and near the beach. It's self-sufficient area for recreation, some kind of foreign hotels with their territory and all inclusive. There is a children's mini-water Park, entertainment staff, evening show cartoons for children. Overall this is a good place to stay, but the territory for miles is nothing.
