Pluses and minuses of rest on the Azov Sea
In comparison with the popular European and Black Sea resorts, the Azov Sea offers a quieter, measured rest. There are only three major resort towns – Yeisk, Temryuk and Taman, which concentrate entertainment for tourists. Travelers who prefer quiet, secluded beaches, go farther from the Black Sea coast and stay in numerous resort towns.
Going to the Azov coast it is important to anticipate the possible disadvantages of the trip:
- Because of the warm water in the second half of summer in the sea begins to bloom, the water is turbid, a lot of jellyfish accumulate;
- The Azov coast is a steppe area, so you have to be more careful to protect yourself from the sun, stock up on umbrellas and tents;
- Along the coast there is no long road, spontaneous descents to the sea are often unsuccessful, and the route between the nearest village may take a long detour.
Note: the steppes of the Azov Sea are sparse on greenery and natural attractions, but the seascapes in some places get a fantastic view, such as Spit Dolgaya near Eisk, which goes into the sea for 11 kilometers.
Despite the disadvantages, many tourists go to rest on the Azov Sea and return here every year. There are good reasons for this:
- Warm and shallow sea with wide beaches;
- the small number of tourists in the resort villages;
- wild, secluded places with picturesque landscapes;
- low prices for accommodation, camping, food and entertainment;
- health-improving environment – remoteness from major cities, clean steppe air, saturated with aromas of herbs;
- therapeutic mud volcanoes and lakes, thermal waters.
How to prepare for the trip
What should be taken into account if you decide to make a trip with a tent to the Azov Sea:
- Think through the route in advance – going by car, take into account the toll sections of the highway, and do not forget to lay a route along the coast to your destination;
- book a campsite in advance – in the high season there may be no vacancies, and it is better to call the campsite in advance and ask about the conditions they offer;
- pay for accommodation in installments for 2-3 days – so there will be no problems with getting a refund if the conditions don’t fit or the weather is bad.
FYI: Electric extension cords will allow you to set up your tent in your favorite camping spot, not just next to an outlet.
