How to get from Yalta to Saki or Coastal
All the traffic that runs between Yevpatoria and Saki, passes through the Coastal. Buses on this route goes a lot, but unfortunately, not all of them make a stop here, and only a commuter. Sometimes you can negotiate with the drivers of coaches, so they planted you there (when paying the fare by cash), but the chances that they will pick you up from the village to the Coastal Evpatoria Saki or small. Therefore it is necessary to move to hope that a small commuter buses from the bus station of Yalta to the bus station Saki. In the village they make two stops on the Simferopol highway near the Museum-ancient settlement Kara-Tobe, and the other approximately in the middle of the village. Run every 10-60 minutes on the theoretical timetable, which in practice do not adhere to. The fare is 30 rubles.
Another option is to get the train. It's not very practical for tourists the way, if you don't want to ride on this vehicle. At the station "Coastal" makes a stop one train a day, transportation to and from Yalta it costs 20 rubles, in the way 20 minutes.
From other cities of Crimea
Directly to the Coastal no transportation except commuter buses from Saki and Evpatoria, and trains with train/railway station of Simferopol, is not. A large number of intercity buses to Yalta pass through the village but stop does not. Therefore, in General case, the route from other cities will lie to Evpatoria or Saki, and you would have to transfer to Shuttle bus (every 10-60 minutes, from 30 rubles), or take a taxi.
On a single ticket Railways
During the tourist season (may to September) from the regions of Russia in Evpatoria inexpensive and comfortable can be reached by a single combined ticket Railways (train+bus) transfers in Krasnodar or Anapa. Further, from Yalta to the Coastal can be reached by Shuttle bus or taxi. To purchase single tickets in cash desks of the Russian Railways or on the website http://pass.rzd.ru/
Your own transport
If you are travelling to the resort by private transport, it is better to go only through Simferopol. From the bridge you have to travel about 300 kilometers, which will take at least 6 hours, often more.
There is another route along the shore of the Black sea through Feodosia, Sudak, Alushta, Yalta and Sevastopol. This is a very scenic route that offers wonderful views, especially in the mountainous places to Alushta. However, this road will take 12 hours, because the roads there are narrow and lots of switchbacks. If you go this route, it is better to schedule a stop at one of the resorts on the South coast on vacation.
