Batumi Things to Do: 18 reviews and 54 photos
The main attraction of Batumi has to be the beach, at least in the warmer months and when it isn't pouring with rain. Don't expect miles of golden sand though...grey boulders form Batumi's long beach which stretches from the port down towards the southern suburbs. Be warned that there are no beach umbrellas for hire, although a few shelters were being constructed for the summer season when I was there in June. Bring suncream too...maybe the rocks attract more UV light or something, because I have never seen so many sunburnt people in my life! Apparently it isn't the cleanest stretch of beach in the world, but it is clean enough to tempt many bathers to frolic in the waves...for cleaner beaches, head south to Sarpi (the border) or north to somewhere like Kobuleti. But for an afternoon of sunbathing and people watching, Batumi's beach is perfect.
Directions: You can't really miss it...head down Gamsakhurdias Kuchas until you reach an attractive square with a fountain and a few cafes...the beach starts just at the back.
