Variety of beaches in Abkhazia
The climatic conditions and the proximity of most resorts to the Black Sea make Abkhazia a wonderful place for recreation and recreation. The total length of the country’s coast is more than 200 kilometers, and more than half of this distance is magnificent sandy and pebble beaches surrounded by evergreen vegetation.
On the entire Abkhaz coast, one can distinguish several large resort centers, the beaches of which have their own advantages and disadvantages, which you simply need to know when choosing a suitable resort.
Beaches of the Sukhumi coast
At 20 kilometers stretch the clean and wide beaches of this resort. Most of them are pebble. The beaches located in the city center are equipped with umbrellas and sun loungers. The most comfortable and popular beach is located near the center of Sukhumi and is called Sinop. Its main advantage is sand and a gentle entrance to the sea. This place will be ideal for bathing children. All other beaches are unequipped and quite deserted, the infrastructure near them is just beginning to develop. As an entertainment, you can sail along this coast on a pleasure boat or on a rented yacht.
The coastline of this resort exceeds 50 kilometers, and the variety of beaches, their landscaping and comfort are recognized as the best in the country. For better orientation, one should distinguish between the area of Old and New Gagra.
The beaches in the resort of Stara Gagra are mostly large and medium pebble, they are famous for their silence and solitude. The natural beauty of the evergreen subtropical park surrounding them and the low population easily pay for the fact that most of these beaches are not equipped with umbrellas, and dozens of water activities are not offered on the promenade. In Stara Gagra there are no large pensions and motels, multi-storey residential buildings and modern hotels. Mostly vacationers will find here several pensions of Soviet buildings and private houses. Even in the midst of summer, you can find peace and measured relaxation here.
Fans of amenities and more developed infrastructure should choose one of the hotels on the shores of New Gagra. Here, the choice of accommodation for tourists is huge, from mini-hotels and modest pensions to modern hotel complexes with a huge list of services and a high level of service. Most beaches have basic leisure equipment, and some boast the opportunity for tourists to relax. There are rental equipment for scuba diving, vacationers are offered to go water skiing, boating, catamarans, experience paragliding or rent a small yacht. The promenade is very busy with dozens of restaurants, trays and shops, and the beaches are often completely full, this is especially true at the high season for beaches near Energetika and Abkhazia.
Beaches of the coast of New Athos
On a relatively small strip of beaches near this city you can also find cozy beaches. Particularly popular beaches are near the boarding house “Mandarin” and the mini-hotel “Stream”. Mostly they are pebble, with the exception of a small beach in the suburbs of New Athos (at the entrance from the Russian-Abkhaz border), on which, despite the pebble shore, the bottom is sandy. In this region, the beaches are not equipped with umbrellas and deck chairs, but the shadow can be found near the sea under the trees.
