This is Katsiveli where one can find the purest water in Crimea among all the beaches of the southern Crimean coast. The water is so transparent here that you can easily dive without a mask. There are beaches that are to anyone’s taste: with small pebbles, with big pebbles, wild beaches etc.
The nearest beach to Alexandria Hotel is just 250 meters away. This wide public pebble beach has a sloping shore and, unlike Yalta or Siemiz beaches, is only two thirds full with people even in the height of the season. A long coastal strip is protected from storms by two wide piers.
A special local color to Katsiveli nature is given by the oceanographic platform situate in the sea 450 meters away from the coast, and an amazing beauty of Cat Mountain (“Gora Koshka”) and Diva Rock (“Skala Diva”) attracts many film crews with actors from Russia and Ukraine.
You can often watch dolphins in a quiet Blue Bay.
