Autumn is working days, flavescent foliage of chestnuts on Khreshchatyk, as an early unpainted greyness… And we pack up a suitcase to the sea! I’m kidding, we will go without suitcases. We will go with light baggage, even if a car allows you to take half of a flat with you. Long-lasting packing up deprive the journey of ease and spontaneity.
You don’t have a car, but you want that promised lightness, autumn sea adventure? We will be happy to help – we will quickly arrange the rent, we will hand over the keys of the car with a full tank – and bon voyage! For trips on the weekend we offer a favourable rate from Friday to the noon of Monday.
Our choice for today is Odessa. We belong to that half of Ukraine, which answers the eternal question “Lvov or Odessa?”- “Of course Odessa!”. Especially in the mellow season. And our love to Lvov wakes up closer to Christmas.
Odessa is known by its history and architecture, but we are going to the sea, do you remember? Summer has left Kiev, but has not completely left Odessa. You come there and suddenly it turns out that this is not the summer that has left us, but we have left the summer!
Indeed, it is so nice to return and appreciate the advantages of the mallow season: the beaches are empty, prices are falling, like the temperature after the Nurofen, and the sun is not so implacable. So it is possible to be given to the beach vacation without any restrictions!
Beaches of Odessa
Langeron is a famous beach in the downtown of the city, its landmark – Shevchenko Park. Sand is pretty clean, there are beach showers, and you can also rent sun loungers. It is remarkable by elite complex at the Nemo hotel, where there are 4 restaurants, swimming pools, jacuzzi.
Arcadia is not just a beach, but a full-fledged resort with a promenade, hotels, boutiques, restaurants and clubs, famous throughout the country. Nightlife lovers come together to Arcadia, it is more suitable for revelry of young people.
Zolotoy bereg – according to one of the legends, the beach was named because of the special golden sand. It pleases with cleanliness and tidiness. It is suitable for holidays with children. Here it is calmer; the sea is shallow near the coast. The beach is free and spacious, there are locker rooms, showers, sun loungers for rent. All standard beach activities are available on Zolotoy Bereg: scooters, parachutes, boat trips, playgrounds and trampolines.
The safety of the beach is at a height – the rescue station and the medical center are open from 7 am to 10 pm. In some areas, you can make barbecue! The beach is far from the center, but it’s not difficult to reach it by car. Entry to the territory is paid.
Health Track. It is not a beach, but it is worth to tell about it here. The amazing Health Track links Langeron and Arcadia. If you like cycling, rollerblading, jogging – do not miss the opportunity to have an active vacation! On the track there are a lot of sports fields as well as bike races.
Otrada – – the symbol of this area is a huge yellow stone with the inscription «Villa Otrada» – it is a traditional place for photo shoots, beloved by both residents of Odessa and its guests. The beach is remarkable for its secrecy – it’s so easy not to find it! But you can get to it by cable way and by walking a few kilometres from Langeron along the Health Track.
Wild beaches – in the summer they are more relevant because of the overcrowding of the main beaches of the city. Crowds of people and high season prices make many vacationers look for the peace and intimacy of nature on unpopular beaches. But if you want solitude and silence, read about these wonderful places before the trip.
