With their blue water and sandy beaches, the Black Sea resorts at the Romanian seaside are a refuge from the summer’s blistering hot days. But alas, at the height of summer most beaches can get very crowded. That is why, we’ve put together a list of the best five best beaches to discover this summer.
Corbu Beach is one of the newest beaches on the Romanian seaside. Located at a short distance from the resorts Mamaia and Navodari, it is a quiet spot where you can escape the crowds and enjoy the wild landscape. Instead, here you can try a lot of activities, such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. As the water is very clear, you can definitely try snorkeling, while the beach is perfect for long walks and birdwatching. Nearby you will also find the ruins of Histria Fortress, built in 657 BC by Greek colonists, and those of Enisala Fortress, established by Genovese merchants at the end of the 13th century.
Vadu Beach is located nearby the city of Constanta. A very long and pretty wide beach, it offers plenty of space and privacy. As it is a truly wild beach, of late access of tourists, especially those coming by cars, has been restricted. That is why, you will not be able to park your car nearby the shore. Camping is not allowed anymore, and access to the beach is only permitted to those who paid a RON 5 fee per day. When traveling here, make sure you bring all things necessary for the day, as the nearest village, Vadu is located some kilometers away.
This beach, as the village that gives it its name, is only accessible by boat. Approximately 3 kilometers away from the Sfantul Gheorghe village, it is one of the wildest beaches left along the Romanian Black Sea coast. Blessed with fine sands and dotted with sea shells, it is also a great spot for birdwatching.
Sulina Beach is located at only 2 kilometres from Sulina and can be reached on foot. Alternatively, you can take a minibus. You will find a beach with fine sand and clear, warm water. As near the shore the water is shallow, this beach is great for kids who have just learned to swim.
Plaja Gura Portitei
A thin stretch of sand, around 4 kilometers wide, Gura Portitei beach separates the Black Sea from Golovita Lake in the Danube Delta. Access to this beach is also only possible by boat. You will have to travel for around one hour from Jurilovca (75 kilometers away from Tulcea). Coming by bike is a great alternative. You can cycle from Vadu to Gura Portitei, or from Sinoie, via Grindul Lupilor.
