Let’s continue our journey through Ukraine.
Today our way lies in the city of Skadovsk. This small, resort town is located on the Black Sea coast at a distance of 100 km from Kherson.
When there is no holiday season, Skadovsk is quiet, cozy and a small town. In the season, of course, here as in a colony of penguins, there is nowhere to fall an apple.) Many tourists.
The city is very inexpensive, but during the season, prices are rising very much. The sea here is shallow, for surfers of interest is not. Opposite Skadovsk, at a distance of 4 km in the sea, is the largest and uninhabited island of Dzharylgach. Island reserve. There are large bird colonies. From the city embankment there go regularly small private boats, water taxi. The island is open for tourists.
In Skadovsk there is a wonderful gym for BJJ. Simply huge and very convenient. Once it hosted very large international wrestling tournaments. Instructor Ivan Dibrov, purple belt. Very nice and kind person. There are blue belts in the gym. Very friendly team. You will always be welcomed, will have the maximum attention and you will have fun and usefully time. Friendliness and hospitality, this is generally a Ukrainian character trait on a par with love for fat.))
On the way from Kherson to Skadovsk you can turn slightly to the side, very close and you will get to the biggest desert of Europe “Aleshkovsky sands”. Of course, caravans from Scheherazade’s fairy tales you will not see there, but it’s easy to get lost and experience all the delights of thirst. And you can arrange safaris on ATVs in the desert, a very exciting activity.)
On the way from Kherson to Skadovsk, the city of Golaya Pristan is located, where an annual watermelon festival is held there in the summer. Watermelon is the largest berry in the world. And very, very tasty.) Even a monument to her was put in Naked Pristan.
In general, you can ride on mats and have a good rest and eat watermelons.
