If you go to Central Beach, you will be delighted with the beach entertainment available here in the form of interesting attractions. And on Massandra Beach, which is located near the Central Beach, you can rent scuba gear, go water skiing or a scooter, or fly a hang glider. If you find yourself on this beach in the evening, the nightclub located here will open its doors for you “The matrix”.

For walking, the Lenin embankment is ideal, next to which there are shops, entertainment centers and restaurants.

If you come on vacation to Yalta with children, go to the zoo “Story”, so that together with them you can observe camels, zebras, tigers and pelicans. And the smallest visitors to the zoo will be able to ride a donkey.

If you wish, you can ride the cable car (you can admire the panorama of the city), which starts from the embankment and ends high in the mountains, at the top of Ai-Petri.
