The most popular of them – Vityazevo and Dzhemete, not for the first season are silent “struggle” for Russian tourists, “competing” between themselves in quality of service, infrastructure development and range of entertainment.
Despite the fact that these resorts are located next to each other and almost merged into one, the difference in characteristics of recreation between them still is. About it we will tell in this article.
Get to a particular resort is not difficult: in any case, first you have to take a train or fly to Anapa, and then decide which way to go to rest – by bus, minibus, cab or rental car.
As for transport links between the villages, and Vityazevo and Dzhemete (Upper and Lower) are located within Anapa and, in fact, are considered an extension of the city-resort.

Weather Vityazevo and Dzhemete determine the winds blowing from the Taman steppes and Caucasus Mountains, as well as fresh breezes that bring freshness from the Black Sea. Because of this aeration at the coast is easy to breathe, and those who suffer from asthma, bronchitis or allergies, about the illnesses here and do not remember.
With children in Vityazevo and Dzhemete better go in early June, when the air warms up to a comfortable +25-26 ° C, and the water – to +22-24 ° C. The same temperatures are typical for September, but the sun becomes more “pliable” during this period, it won’t burn so much, but you’ll feel the pleasant “velvet” heat.
In July and August it gets really hot in Dzhemete and Vityazevo: during the daytime the thermometer rises above +30 °С, and the water gets up to +27 °С. The sun insolation is off-scale and you will not lie on the beach for a long time, but this time like no other suits for romantic night swimming.
