How to organize your vacation on the Black Sea coast?
It turns out that it is not so easy to choose a place to your liking and your means. We open the map: from Adler to Anapa there are beautiful cities, towns, villages, providing vacationers with everything that their heart desires. Every year, the service sector in the Black Sea resorts reaches a higher level and is not much different from foreign counterparts. Of course, there are conservatives among our compatriots: my mother Adler took a fancy and for many years she goes to the same guest house, to the same mistress. And each time brings a lot of positive emotions and impressions from the trip.
So, you decided to go to the Black Sea … First of all, decide how you want to spend your vacation: calmly and impressively or actively and colorfully. Get to know the coastline via the Internet: here is a description of nature, and routes, and photos, and forums. Do not neglect the reviews of experienced tourists, they will help you create a clearer picture of the chosen place. Think about how you will get to your final destination (planes and trains do not count). The host usually provides transportation services at a small additional cost.

Of course, you can get acquainted with the housing market in advance, read reviews, call the owner and book a room. But sometimes colorful pictures do not quite reflect reality. Therefore, as much as possible inquire about the services provided. Few people conclude an agreement with guests, but this is a good guarantee that you will receive what you promised. On the first coastline there are hotels and inns at every step, but the prices there are appropriate. Rooms often go directly onto the sidewalk, overlooking the roadway, with an endless buzz and the noise of a summer holiday of life. Someone likes … health, relax!
But if you go on vacation with children or like to listen to the voice of nature in the evenings, I recommend choosing a place to stay away from the coast, where nightlife also boils and thunders with music.
Do not neglect the private sector, which is located one to two kilometers from the sea.
Firstly, you can pay half as much for a room, and get an order of magnitude more comfort. Secondly, owners of mini-hotels lure vacationers with comfort. Shower, toilet, TV, refrigerator in a spacious room, Wi-Fi, cozy courtyards and a small number of rooms, which allows you to really relax from the hustle and bustle. Thirdly, the owners offer vacationers transport services and a guesthouse (for a small fee you will be fed in the evening and at lunch, taken to the sea and taken away).
For those who like to walk, the remoteness of the noisy coast is only a plus.
The narrow, well-groomed streets buried in verdure and decorative gardens are a pleasure for walking. And one more interesting nuance that not everyone knows about: the farther from the sea, the higher the housing sector is located in the mountains (the Black Sea coast has such a feature), and from there a breathtaking view of the sea and mountains opens. I wish you a pleasant and comfortable stay in every way!
