The western coast of Crimea is gradually turning into a popular resort area. One of the popular destinations for recreation is the village of Novofedorovka (Saki district). The local landscape is not crossed by mountains and hills. This is a flat steppe, on which it is convenient to walk with small children and strollers. The beach is flat, wide, the coating is sand with pebbles, the entrance to the sea is gentle with a smooth set of depth. Nature itself here has created ideal conditions for a trip on vacation with children.
How to entertain a child in Novofedorovka?
Almost all leisure infrastructure is located on the beach. There are attractions, rental of jet skis and catamarans, on the pier offers sea excursions and walks. In the park next to the beach is open local Luna Park. This year, several more entertainment outlets will open. The most popular are the beaches “Deck” and “Robinson”. These are landscaped areas, besides, “Deck” has already won the competition for the title of “Best Beach of the Crimea”.
The history of the village is associated with aviation. At one time there was a military airfield. All monuments in one way or another belong to this period of Novofedorovka’s life. The main attraction of the village is the aviation ground training complex. Not far from it is the alley of Heroes-pilots.
You can go to the excavations of the ancient settlement, which are held near the city of Saki. A tourist bus runs there daily. You can go for a walk in the district center. Saki has long been considered the largest balneological resort and the tourist infrastructure here is better than in Novofedorovka. There are museums, historical sights, water park “Banana Republic”, parks with attractions.
Which hotel to stay in?
In the village there is an active development of undeveloped territories along the coastline. This is a natural stage. Novofedorovka is gradually turning from a Soviet regime zone into a resort center. Hotels grow like mushrooms. Choosing the best of them is quite difficult. Almost all are built according to a single scheme: a residential building, a swimming pool, a recreation area. If the family plans to come to the hotel only for the night, then any option will do. The rating presents the best hotels for parents with children.
Four-storey house is located in a closed area 400 meters from the sea. This is a budget option for living even in high season. Families are advised to book a two-room apartment with a kitchen.

“Rest left double feelings. On the one hand, cozy rooms, comfortable courtyard, to the sea 5 minutes walk. On the other hand, the complete lack of customer orientation of the staff. Personally, I don’t care if they smile at me or not, but I need to think something about breakfasts. I believe that if the hostess includes food in the room rate, then it should correspond to the quality and quantity. If they cannot provide a diet, then let the vacationers choose where to eat” Nadezhda Arkadyevna
An inexpensive option for living at the resort offers a guest house “Rainbow”. The owners offer accommodation in 3, 4, 5 bed rooms. Each has its own bathroom, air conditioning.
