  • Just a beautiful piece of a beach with that 40s-50s vibe
  • It is a beautiful place, but now it is almost unsuitable for walking because of the widely deployed construction works and the sway cyclists who are completely unreadable with the rules of movement. If you are walking with children, be very attentive. The view of the bay is breathtaking. So far, most exits to the sea are closed. What's going to happen in the season, isn't it? Most likely most of the beaches will be paid and access to the sea is also limited.

  • A wonderful snow-white embankment stretching from the center to the lighthouse on the Cape ToList. There are places for rest, children's playgrounds. Many monuments. A huge number of flowers! Beaches are sandy, pebble. There are cafes, restaurants, canteens. Rest for everyone!

  • It's cool. Now April in the whole bloom tulips and other plants Carousel Park has already started to work. On the waterfront there is live music and various sights of the city. Divers in the marine Gelendzhik Bay clean the bottom of the embankment. The beach is sprinkled with new sand.. Near to the café fry kebabs and dishes on the grill. There is a minus there is no good market. Maybe that's not the summer season, but the weather is great sunny.
