Believe it or not, some people prefer to stay at home rather than spending a lot of money for a beach vacation. Most people think it costs so much to have an unforgettable beach vacation in one of the most popular destinations for beach holidays. However, it is not true for all the destinations. If you associate your vacation with spending a lot of money, you may be surprised to find there are many affordable destinations you can go for your next beach vacation.
Let’s discover five of the cheapest destinations for your pleasure time on the beach. You can enjoy your time sitting on a beach under a sturdy beach tent or take part in various beach activities in one of the following countries for very affordable costs.
Today, Ukraine is one of the cheapest countries for a beach vacation in the world. As it doesn’t belong to any list of top tourist destinations, it has affordable prices for accommodation, transportation, and food.
Even though Ukraine lost Crimea Peninsula after the conflict with Russia in 2014, it still has access to two seasides – the Black Sea and the Azov Sea.
The Azov Sea has beautiful sandy beaches, and they are mostly suitable for vacations with children. But the Black Sea has more clear water and more appropriate places for swimming and snorkeling.
Odessa is the largest city in the Ukrainian seaside. It’s old historical city with Baroque architecture and the most important seaport of the country. Moreover, it is full of beach resorts from the cheapest to luxury ones.
Craving for saturated nightlife, tourists go to Odessa’s nightclubs (“Ibiza” is the most popular one). But those, who want relaxation, visit campsites in the Arabat Spit and the Black Sea side.
Albania is a real hidden gem of Europe. Albania does attract tourists to both its untouched nature and historical heritages. Surprisingly, bunkers are considered to be a symbol of Albania. There are thousands of bunkers all over the country, which belong to its communist past.
The Albanian seaside is considered to be the wealthiest trait of the country. It is full of attractive sandy beaches for swimming and snorkeling. Moreover, you can find a lot of touristic resorts with prices, cheaper than in neighboring Greece and Montenegro. Albanian resorts and infrastructure are still being developed which makes it the right time to visit this country, while the prices are still affordable.
Planning your beach vacation to the Southeast Asia, think about visiting Cambodia. Although this country is located right next to the incredible touristic Thailand, it has no less outstanding places to visit.
