Spending a summer vacation on the beach - an all-time classic favourite. Over recent years, Azerbaijan has become a popular tourist destination among foreigners, 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 the warm waves of the Caspian until well into September. It is not surprising that the coast of the Absheron peninsula attracts so many visitors. It’s not only the affordable prices and the good level of service, but also the healing and relaxing ambiance - the pure sea air, the therapeutic sanatoria on the shore and a rich, diverse natural environment. The official opening of the beach season is at the beginning of June though beaches can be visited year-round.
