Rest in Fun
Merry is difficult to call a full-fledged resort. It is rather a place where you can come relax for a day of Walleye, as here, deserted beaches. As a place for long stay it will only fit for a real Robinson with tents and a car, since almost no infrastructure and amenities in the beach area there.
The black sea and the beach are four kilometers from the center of the village. To the coast from the village is asphalt road, which then splits and goes into the primer along the beaches. To the right stretches the beautiful, partly pebble-sandy beach with grey sand, stretching about two kilometers. The least pebble on the left (with the groans of Novyi Svet and Sudak), while in the other side more. But even there, where the beach is completely sandy, a few meters from the water still covered the bottom with pebbles.
There is no promenade along the beach is a dirt road, separated from the beach by a wooden fence. The water is clear and transparent, because in Kucukkuyu (Veselovsky) of the Bay do not come with the large ships.

A well-equipped camping cabins in three hundred metres from the shore, but the 2016 season, he was abandoned. Comfortable seats for the Congress by car and tents right on the beach, but it is possible to stop on a large Parking lot near the unfinished just 30 metres from the shore, and there set up the tent.
Overall impressions of the infrastructure near the beach remain the most sad: the feeling of abandonment and desolation. Abandoned campsites, paths and stairs to the beach broken and unfinished Ghost spoil the whole look. Near the beach there are a couple of simple cafes and shop, but they work only in the high season. The main shopping and tourists, and the residents prefer to spend in Sudak, which you can reach by bus or taxi.
