Kyrylivka – the pearl of the Azov Sea
One of the best seaside resorts on the northern coast of the Azov Sea is considered to be Kirillovka village. Its resort area with long sandy beaches stretched for more than 50 kilometers along the sea coast …
We note right away that there are a lot of settlements with such a name in the spaces of the former USSR, but in our article we will discuss Kyrylivka, located in the Zaporozhye region in Ukraine.
An important feature of the resort area of Kirillovka is that most of its beaches are located on the Fedotova Spit, on the one side of which is the Sea of Azov, and on the other – the shallow bay Utlyuk Liman.
In addition to the long sandy beaches, there is very good air here, as well as a large number of sunny days per year, by the way, there are even more of them in this area than in Yalta. The tourist season in Kirillovka opens at the end of May and ends by the end of September, but the best time for a beach holiday is from mid-June to mid-September.
Perhaps the only drawback of Kirillovka is the absence of lush vegetation that affects the eyes, for example, when you rest in the Crimea. Here, the landscape is rather monotonous: a flat strip of a long sandy beach, blue sea, rare trees and lush bushes.
You can stay in Kirillovka in one of the many private hotels, a large sanatorium, or you can rent a house on one of the auto campgrounds. Regardless of which type of accommodation you choose, a trip to the beach will not take you more than five minutes, and in some cases, the sea will be almost at your doorstep.
Most of the local hotels and boarding houses can be called quite decent (many have air conditioners), and they were built quite recently.
The line of recreation centers and hotels in Kirillovka stretches for many kilometers along the seashore, so take care of the transfer to your place of residence from the village center in advance, as there is no public transport other than a taxi. If you book a room and notify the hotel in advance of your arrival, it will take on the organization of the transfer.
But lovers of traveling in their own car will not face any problems here at all. A good road leads to any point of the spit, and each hotel has a parking place. The car is useful to you, because most of the entertainment is located near the center of the village.
Almost every hotel and sanatorium Kirilovki has its own canteens or small cafes, you can eat in them or go to a nearby restaurant. Even on the beach there are summer bars and small restaurants where you can have a snack between sunbathing. There are also merchants walking along the beach, offering dried fish and exotic sweets to everyone.
There are not very many entertainments in Kirillovka, but they are still there. A huge water park, located right on the seashore, will bring a lot of joy and turbulent emotions not only to children, but also to adults. It offers high water slides, steep descents, pools of different depths and many other water attractions.
Next to the water park there is a dolphinarium, in its spacious pool there are performances every day. Dolphins are considered the smartest of mammals, their coordinated actions and complete obedience to the trainer is simply amazing.
Just a few minutes away is another local landmark – the equestrian theater “Kirillovskaya Sich”. Strong and courageous Cossacks will show the wonders of riding, demonstrate the art of fencing with sabers, play out the staged assault on the fortress. A lot of great photos and pleasant memories you provided.
