  • This is a beautiful place with a wonderfull shore. The waves occur in the sea attracts many tourists who are interested in surfing 🏄 and the most imported thing is the view when the sun goes to the sea
  • Nice place, full of different fishes in the ocean, big turtles at the beach. The beach is clean and it's good to swim. Almost only Russian people in the city, and locals speak English and Russian well
