Tourist information about Sun valley and Coastal in the Crimea
Sun valley and Coastal – two villages on the Black sea in the South-Eastern part of Crimea, between Sudak and village Resort (Sun valley and Coastal on the map of the Crimea). Both villages are included in urban region pike, and sometimes regarded as its suburbs. Do not confuse this with another Coastal village, located in the Saksky area in the West of the Peninsula.
Sun valley – a larger settlement with shops, there are even hotels and modest tourist infrastructure. But it is located three kilometers from the beach. Coastal, on the contrary, has almost no infrastructure, but is right on the beach.
This place is ecologically clean area of Crimea, tourism is poorly developed and little popular. Besides the beautiful landscapes, Sunny weather and clear sea, Sun valley is known as one of the oldest wine-producing places of the Crimea. Here is the winery "Sun valley", which produces unique therapeutic red wine "Black doctor" from the local grape variety, which grows nowhere else. Be sure to try this wine if given the opportunity. However, keep in mind that it is not the cheapest: one butyl costs 1500 rubles, and the bottle and generally more than 2000 rubles.
Vacation in Sun valley and Coastal
The biggest plus of the resort is its thinly populated, because there are few tourists even in the height of the season. Go on vacation here, mainly those who are willing to endure discomfort in exchange for peace and quiet. Therefore, most of the campers here – independent tourists with tents and travellers, accustomed to the Spartan conditions. Of course, you can stay in one of the few private mini-hotels in the village or private traders, but in this case, you will be in this country, and even away from the beach because the nearest residential area is approximately one and a half miles away, and the Sun valley village and in three kilometers. But after coming to terms with the almost complete lack of facilities and infrastructure, campers have beautiful scenery, a splendid long sandy-pebble beach, clean air and clear water. The beach here can really be attributed to the best in the Crimea.
But the cons to stay in Coastal, too, abound. Entertainment there are no. When tired to lie on the beach, you can go for a walk in a Sunny valley where the ancient temple of St. Elias and a mosque. You can still go Hiking at Cape Meganom or climb the trails in the surrounding mountains, you can get down to Fox Bay and the village Resort (on the way to them on the shore you can see an abandoned kinogorod and trekking on mount Echki-Dag). In the center Solnechnoy valley is a signature wine store, and literally next to the beach are located the shop, and again, store brand of the winery "Sun valley". And that's it. Even the tour here don't purchase just anywhere. The coming entertainment and attractions in Sudak, where you can ride the bus, but there are disadvantages: the buses run infrequently, and usually crowded. Therefore, without the transport of boredom in Sun valley and Coastal do not howl only the most phlegmatic tourist. Of infrastructure here only a few cafes in the peak season, so if you come here at the beginning or at the end of the tourist season (June and September), even to eat will have no place. Several small shops located in the center of Sunny valley where to walk from the beach at least 30 minutes.
Oh and not to mention another considerable disadvantage. In the Coastal a considerable area of the village is part of the military, including the military closed to the public almost km beach line. Walking along the beach you simply rested in the rusty fence with warning labels. Does not add to the scenic beauty of the beach and the barbed wire running along the fence of military unit, a terrible fence adjacent to the beach, winery, rickety and ramshackle (apparently derelict) buildings cafes, shops and it is unclear what structures, probably left over from the old days when vacationers were very many.
Hotels, where to stay
With accommodation in Sun valley and Coastal large problem for those who want to get from rest service and comfort. Normal hotels here, there is only a private mini-hotel with a budget level of service. Moreover, they are far from the beach. Same thing with the private housing stock: houses and rooms are rented, but are far away from the beach. So the rest of the Coastal is basically a lot of tourists and fans of rest in tents. In the Coastal previously worked several camping Deluxe with toilet, water, electricity and even houses. But at the beginning of the 2016 season the campsites were abandoned, reanimated them later, we have no information. Right next to the beach also, there are places where you can safely raise the car and set up the tent, but the toilets and no water.
