Abkhazia – some tips for tourists

Abkhazia is a very beautiful country, and at the same time, colorful even against the background of other Caucasian lands. Holidays here are more suitable for lovers of wildlife, legends and antiquities than lovers of established service and comfort of cozy hotels.

Abkhazia – some tips for tourists

And the sea in Abkhazia is considered the cleanest on the entire Black Sea coast, and the air with a pine-cypress aroma is very useful. However, if a lot has already been written about the beauties of Abkhazia, then they are reluctant to write about the small difficulties that tourists may have when visiting the former “Soviet Riviera”.

In this article, we will try to tell you about Abkhazian surprises that are best avoided so that the trip leaves only pleasant memories.

Some surprises will by no means be surprises for those who have already rested in the Caucasus and are familiar with the Caucasian mentality. This means – one should not be rude, provoke local residents with too frank clothes, and in no case should humiliate national dignity.

Abkhazia has its own peculiarity – residents of remote mountain villages are not spoiled by tourism and show real, disinterested Caucasian hospitality.

On the coast you need to be vigilant – and crime, and corruption, and fraud here, as they say, have a place to be. But in general, the situation in Abkhazia is calm, local residents are well disposed towards tourists from Russia.

Beaches in Abkhazia

As you know, off-season is the best time for a holiday in the Caucasus, but this rule does not apply to Abkhazia. It is better to come here, starting in mid-June, the swimming season officially opens here, the coast comes to life. There are reasons for this: the transport network, service enterprises, and tour agencies are starting to work in full. Lake Ritsa, the monastery of New Athos, mountain waterfalls are most accessible during the season. And from the beginning of September to the end of May, resort life in Abkhazia noticeably subsides.

Employees sometimes “on duty” informally, during off hours, it is clear for what purpose.

The general rule for holidaymakers in the south is to constantly wash their hands, vegetables, and fruits in Abkhazia. It is becoming especially important – sanitary standards are not very carefully observed even in public catering establishments.
