The results of the Black Sea Spring competition were summed up at the last Carnavalleto festival last Saturday. The competition was held on behalf of the Governor of the region in order to identify the best landscaped areas of the resort in preparation for the beach season.

The main criteria for the nomination «Beach» was a comparison of equipped territories located on the Black Sea coast of Sochi and other resort towns of the region. The winner of the nomination was the beach of the city-hotel «Barkhatnye sezony», which in summer provides the most necessary infrastructure for vacationers. These are sun beds and umbrellas, changing rooms and showers, an aerarium and a massage area, a playground and a children's swimming area, as well as a medical center and a rescue service. On the embankment near the beach there are restaurants, cafes and kiosks with sweets and ice cream, shops of resort goods, souvenir shops and bicycle rental and electric transport. From the seashore, there are amazing views of both the endless sea surface and the tops of the mountains covered with forest.

The beach is considered the southernmost on the Black Sea coast due to its location in the Imereti Bay near the state border with Abkhazia. A wide pebble beach with a length of 500 m along an open water area without breakwaters and with a gentle entrance into the water is ideal for bathing children, and the absence near the railway adds to the advantages of recreation in comparison with any other resort of Greater Sochi.

The final of the Black Sea Spring contest was held on the opening days of the summer holiday season in the Cherry Orchard opposite the Sochi Sea station. The competition was held by the Administration of municipalities of the Krasnodar Territory together with the Union of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the region and the information and tourism portal DriveNew within the framework of the regional competition «Azov Wave» and is a project of positive changes in the resorts of the Krasnodar Territory.
