Rest in Privetnoye
In fact, when talking about rest in Pryvitne are relaxing on the beach near the village that I grew up in a tourist area of slipways and cottages and in the village itself tourists rarely stop. This place is also called the complex "Katran". In fact it is samobrazovaniya tourist area along the beach 2 km long with minimal infrastructure, with almost no budget, relaxed the type of "doing nothing" and without any claims to the service, the cleanliness and beauty of the beaches.
11 kilometers on the road to detour two kilometres along the coast from Pryvitne is another tourist area – Kanaka (Kanakskaya beam). Here is a little more comfortable, cleaner, and more expensive, but the decor is again of the same village.
The bulk of vacationers - families with children. For young people it's too boring, and the conditions for the elderly are not the most suitable. To walk a day or go somewhere in the evening there's just no entertainment apart from the beach and sitting in cafes. Also here come the tourists with tents and in their cars in the camping.
Beaches in Privetnoye
In the village Privetnoye the sea. The coast will have to walk (about half an hour walk through the picturesque countryside) or by car. But, at the same time, in the village where tourists almost never stopped, preferring to live near the sea in "Katran".
The beach in the spiny dogfish (also called village beach) is divided by the river Uskut into two halves: the West refers to the sporting house, and on the East is situated the camping. A small stream, almost a trickle, so you can easily move between the beaches. On the beach near the sporting house has no such facilities like changing cabins, showers, toilets. But you can rent a lounger or umbrella, cafes, canteens and retail outlets.
Kanak beams the beach is another resort area, is located to the South along the coast to two kilometres, and almost 11 kilometres down the road. Here you can rent umbrellas, chairs, jet skis. On the beach there are cafes, highlighted several VIP areas. And in General, the situation in the area more comfortable, the streets are cleaner, the service better.
Water near the coast of both beaches clear and clean, as the large ships do not go here, and large factories nearby. Beaches strewn with pebbles. Sand a little, he's big and grey, and lies a few metres from the water's edge.
To the North of the village beach for miles stretches a wild pebbly beach, sometimes turning into a real "Bulygina", but here is deserted.
