You are interested in “wild” beaches where you can sunbathe almost alone? Go to the beach “Gumista” (it is covered with a sand and pebble mixture).
Sukhumi will also delight diving enthusiasts: in the Sukhumi Bay, they will be offered to explore the ruins of the ancient city of Dioscuria, which once existed on this territory - the underwater ruins are located at a depth of 15 meters, so even novice divers can see them (the hospitality service is involved in the organization of underwater travel “Apsny” - it will start after the briefing and will last about 1 hour). Experienced divers will be offered to dive from a boat to explore the sunken Soviet ship - in wartime it was used to transport refugee children from Novorossiysk to Sukhumi (the children were rescued, but the ship was sunk by fascist fighters).
