Impressions of Foros
Foros is an extremely picturesque village 40 km from Yalta. According to reviews from vacationers, in the season in Foros is crowded, and on the narrow streets everywhere parked cars. The coast is pebbly and stony, and the sea amazes with its crystalline water.
The resort pleases with silence, cleanliness and luxurious old park. Infrastructure, as always, lags behind. On the beaches in the middle of summer you can see such a miracle, as a closed toilet, and for entertainment have to go to other resorts of the southern coast of Crimea.
I have been vacationing recently, the place and the views are amazing. However, service leaves much to be desired. Quite dirty on beaches, a pebble. But all this can be tolerated, looking at the views of our beautiful Crimea.
SorentoPrime750: “Impressions from the village is very positive! You can definitely say that you want to come back here.

Is it expensive to rest in Foros?
The prices at any resort in the South Crimea are high and Foros is not an exception!
In the summer of 2022 double room in a mini-hotel or guest house costs from 3500 rubles per day.
Rest with treatment in the sanatorium Foros in the summer of 2022 costs from 8500 ₽ for two per day, in winter – 4900 ₽. The sanatorium recently underwent renovation and now looks very modern and stylish, and this is a great rarity for the Crimea.
Because of the sanctions in the Crimea it is difficult to find accommodation, but there are still a few convenient services. Look for hotels on Hotellook, and private accommodation on Daily rent. Do not trust ads on Avito and similar sites. Book accommodation in the Crimea only on trustworthy services with real photos and tourists reviews, so you won’t get a pig in a poke.
The food is sold in small grocery stores. Judging by the reviews of holidaymakers, cafes and restaurants on the first line are expensive. Tourists praise the local market with democratic prices for fruits and vegetables. By the evening sellers are ready to give unsold goods with large discounts. The main thing is not to forget to bargain!
Irinka Susorova: “We were in the Crimea for the first time. On some kind of instinct we chose Foros. For a family vacation – that’s what we needed. Very much I liked it. High prices for products in stores. You can find a cab, where for an absolutely reasonable fee you will take tours to anywhere in the Crimea.

Sea and beaches in Foros
Narrow stony beaches are the main drawback of the Crimean resort. There are several ways to the sea, but all of them are covered with large pebbles. Walk on it barefoot hard, so the local stores sell coral slippers. Foros like lovers of secluded rest. Approaches to the sea is not decorated in any way, and on the shore no one offers tourists delicious donuts and boiled corn.
The sea water is clear – you can see every pebble at the bottom. In responses about Foros for 2021 holiday-makers advise to swim on a beach “the Silent bay” at resort of a name of Terletsky or on a public beach at sanatorium “Foros”.
Stanislaww: “Foros is on the coast. Coming out to the sea, you come across stone beaches. Of course, it’s not to everyone’s liking.

Rest with children in Foros
Can not say that Foros – an ideal resort for recreation with children, kids is difficult to walk on the gravel, and on the streets of too many cars. Preschoolers have to be led by the hand all the time! According to reviews of tourists, with older children in Foros is good. There is where to walk, and a lot of interesting excursions.
po1zon: “As such there are no beaches, huge pebbles or huge boulders. With such boulders with children of 4 and 6 years there is nothing to do even in the calm. And if the sea storms, and adults have nothing to catch, the stones will break your feet.

Interesting or boring at the resort
Foros is not a party place. The settlement has a small city park with pine trees, benches for recreation and trampolines for children. On the territory of the sanatorium “Foros” is an old cozy park, which is more like a botanical garden. There grows a lot of exotic trees and shrubs, there are ponds with goldfish and turtles. In the evenings in the park there is live music and dancing. Entrance everywhere is free.
All tourists go to the Foros church. A beautiful temple stands on the Red Rock, at an altitude of about 400 meters above sea level. From the observation deck there is a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains. It’s very pleasant to meet the sunrise here!
Fans of active recreation are engaged in diving and take sea walks. Located above the village of Foros Kant mountain range – a mecca for Crimean mountain climbers.
According to tourists, Foros is a good starting point for sightseeing tours to the southern coast of Crimea. Vacationers are taken on excursions to the Grand Canyon, Ai-Petri, Swallow’s Nest, the famous Crimean palaces, Nikita Botanical Garden and Sevastopol.
Milena Shishkova: “If you want a vacation where you want to visit beautiful places and learn something new, then feel free to go to Yalta and its surroundings. It is these places are the center of all the attractions of the Crimea.

According to tourists’ reviews, Foros has a pleasant sunny autumn. Dry and warm velvet season lasts till the first decade of October.
Lyudmila Puchkova: “I regretted a million times that I came to Foros in June. I expected to spend as much time as possible on the beach, but in fact I had to rest far away from the sea. Unfortunately, it’s a little early to talk about the beach and swimming season.

The reviews about Foros: making conclusions.
The picturesque village on the southern coast of Crimea is a prestigious resort that is available to everyone. Foros is great for a quiet holiday by the sea in the summer of 2022.

According to reviews of tourists, the best choice for connoisseurs of comfort – sanatorium “Foros”.

If there were police that could be called, it would be a lot better. But there aren’t. Somewhere they kind of opened a stronghold, but there’s nowhere to get it at night, which the hooligans take advantage of.
