To get to the waterfall or the village General public transport is difficult and time consuming, so travelers come to Solnechnogorskiy, here hire a car for the trip to the waterfall.

Солнечногорское, Крым The main street in Solnechnogorskoye

Infrastructure in Solnechnogorskoye well-developed for such a small village. There are a few shops, including household goods, market. Almost all are concentrated along the main street of the village – Road street, aka highway Р29, between Alushta and Sudak.

But infrastructure for tourists starts to work only in high season. Cafes, excursions, shops with products for tourists and tourist shops, and even a large part of the hotel opens only in the middle of June and terminates in late September. At the intersection of Highway street and Cherry street in season is a cheap canteen.

Hotels and accommodation where to stay in Solnechnogorsk

In Solnechnogorsk you can stay in hotels or guesthouses or rent private housing. Prices in high season start from 700 rubles for a double room and 900 for a room for four.

The bulk of the accommodation is concentrated along main road – highway Р29 (aka street racing). Also a lot of housing available in the back of the village, and the prices are even cheaper. The most comfortable and expensive accommodation is offered on a first line with direct beach access. Unfortunately, most of the suggested housing – the private sector, which can only be booked on site or by telephone through ads or "pickup" of friends.

The most economical and can accommodate on-site camping in the Northern part of the village. He used to work officially, but as of June 2016 was not functioning, and is free to come and take there place for car and tent. But, in our opinion, the location is very inconvenient: is located on a hill above the beach with an uncomfortable long descent to the beach is paved ground, not very comfortable to accommodate in the tent. Moreover, it is open to all winds.

admin May 27, 2016

Thanks for the feedback. Soon information about Alushta and the surrounding area will be renewed and will become even more. And yet, if you are looking for in these parts a place with a quiet, sparsely populated beaches, I recommend another look at Solnechnogorsk. Personally, I like it more than fishing, as something more comfortable out there, the beach is well-groomed, not as "dead" as in fishing. However if you on your car and tent in Solnechnogorskoye no normal camping as in fishing. And not to be confused with solnechnogorskaya Ulitsa. These villages are near, almost merged into one, but the beachfront in Malorechenskoye very tiny. This is my IMHO, of course, just recommend. ...

The rest chose to 2018 in the Crimea. Long thought, in what city or village to go, which hotel or hotel to choose, read many reviews, listened to the advice of friends and decided to stay at a wonderful place called the Utes at the hotel Santa Barbara 3**. I want to say, earlier, was vacationing abroad - Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Spain, in the Crimea, in Yalta, Alushta, Gurzuf, traveled on tours the whole of Crimea, but such a heavenly place not seen anywhere else. The village itself attracts with its beauty and atypical. The Utes near Alushta, in my opinion, even, is the town of Alushta to Yalta 30 minutes, i.e. convenient location, You will be able to get in the direction of Alushta is very fast, and in the direction of Yalta. A tiny village located on the mountain attracts with its coziness, little Italy. Who would have thought that in Crimea exists???)))
Regarding, hotels and accommodation. Very responsive, friendly and welcoming staff. Feel every day care of yourself! We lived in a room with a sea view. Every day you Wake up with the sea, fall asleep with the sea! Fantastic! The hotel called Santa Barbara 3**, one of the most famous hotels of the Cliff, the village itself is often called Santa Barbara. The hotel itself is located right on the waterfront, i.e. out of the hotel and here's the sea, the beach! The room has everything you need. Pleased with daily maid service, change of linen and towels every three days! At the front Desk administrators will always help, prompt, advise and not least important, will give You their smiles and warmth. We had two meals - Breakfast and lunch. Breakfast and lunch we had at the restaurant Santa Barbara over the sea, the restaurant is right on ...
