AtatatRatatatat: “If you want to walk around the city and see the sights, it’s still better to go in May or in September. Then the heat is not so hot, and there’s not such an influx of tourists.
- The railroad and highway divide the village in two. From the resort housing to the beaches have to walk through the equipped crossings and in the heat to wait for a traffic light signal.
- The hilly terrain. Vacationers climb uphill every day to get from the sea to their accommodations.
- Unclean water and the smell of sewage on the shore.

Reviews about the beaches and the sea in Loo

Nuances of rest in Loo
According to the reviews of tourists, rest in Loo in 2022 will suit everyone who does not claim to excessive luxury. In addition to the water park, the village has no other entertainment. There are few walking zones.
Veronika D: “The infrastructure is completely absent. There are almost no sidewalks in the village, and you have to walk directly on the roadway from the edge.
If you want to settle in a quieter place, we advise to rent an apartment away from the beaches. There will be no noise, but from the sea will have to walk uphill. To feel more comfortable in hotels, hostels and boathouses on the coast, choose rooms with plastic windows. There will be less noise from the trains and discos.
Tourists do not recommend swimming near the mouth of the river Loo and near the storm drains that flow into the sea. The water here is dirty, and it’s easy to catch an infection. All necessary medications, especially remedies for intestinal disorders, bring with you. There are pharmacies in Loo, but the prices there are high, and in the summer there are queues.
