General information

Yalta (Yalta) is a city on the southern coast of the Crimea, and a popular resort. Located on the shore of Yalta Bay of the Black sea in 80 km from Simferopol (Yalta on the map of the Crimea), refers to the southern resorts of Crimea. The city is small with a population of less than 80 thousand people, but this is the most famous resort of the Peninsula, we can say, the tourist face of the Crimea.

Along the coast of Yalta and its neighboring towns stretch pebble beaches, which in high season are never empty. To call them the best beaches of the Crimea may be a stretch, but here it is remarkable that a beach vacation is complemented by a well-developed tourist infrastructure, plenty of entertainment and attractions. For those who find the hustle and bustle of the city will disturb, it is possible to stay in one much more peaceful suburbs, while to all the entertainment of Yalta is at hand. Among resorts (beaches) of the big Yalta are the towns:

The Beaches Of Yalta

Only in Yalta several beaches are within the city and in the suburbs. They are all pebbly, but tourists in the high season almost more than pebbles. Depth mostly begins almost immediately from the shore, which is not very safe for children. The beaches are separated by a transverse dam (Boone), and some divided their land and according to its length. Therefore, to move from one part of the beach to another, and especially from one to the other is possible only in the bypass. Moreover, in many places, the walkways to the shore intentionally hampered the hotels and other buildings. About the beauty of the beaches, of course, can not speak: in the best case, we get a view of the hotel in the worst – place concrete piles.

Infrastructure on the beaches for the most part well developed. There are showers, changing rooms, café, toilets. Rent include sun beds, umbrellas, presents water sports and entertainment.

As for water, it is transparent, but on environmental indicators is far from ideal. Moreover, the city sewer system is constructed in such a way that sometimes the storm drains and the sewage goes directly into the water near the city's beaches. So, in our opinion, in spite of the popularity of Yalta, the beaches here are some of the worst in the Peninsula. Read more review of beaches of Yalta...

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, previously 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 ...

A lot of stalactites and stalagmites, but most of all struck by a huge landslide hall, the size of the imagination.

The choice of the place and time of rest

1. Don't plan a vacation on high season (July-August). The price is much higher, as a rule, absolutely unreasonable.

If you are going skiing or snowboarding, but not willing to pay, then refrain from traveling during the new year holidays (the last week of December and the first week of January) when maximum prices for ski services because of the Christmas holidays.
