Spending a summer vacation on the beach – an all-time classic favourite. Over recent years, Azerbaijan has become a popular tourist destination among foreigners, and not least thanks to the Caspian Sea. The mild, warm climate gives Baku residents a chance to kick off the beach season in May and swim in warm waves until the middle of September. It is not surprising that the coast of the Absheron peninsula attracts tourists so much. It’s not only the affordable prices and a good level of service, but also the healing relaxing ambiance – the pure sea air, therapeutic sanatoria on the shore and a rich, diverse natural environment. The official opening of the beach season is at the beginning of June.
