Mamaia resort

Mamaia is Romania’s most popular resort on the Black Sea shore and the largest summer resort on the Romanian seaside. It gained its title as “The Pearl of Romanian seaside” but also as “the new Ibiza of Black Sea”.  
Mamaia beach
Mamaia should be the first summer destination for those who want to enjoy relaxing days surrounded by sandy beaches, and glowing nights spent dancing until morning in the best clubs on the coast. 
Mamaia beach
Mamaia lies on a strip of land between the Black Sea and Siutghiol Lake. Natural conditions are excellent: large sandy beaches, pleasant breeze and warm sea water. The beach season is at its best between mid May and late September, when average daytime temperatures range between 25 to 30 degrees Celsius (78 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit). The water stays warm until mid autumn.

Sunrise in Mamaia
Mamaia resort was gifted with one of the largest beaches in the whole Europe and it is the only resort in Europe to have the pure white sand only found in tropical places such as Hawaii. The beach covers an area of almost 10 km, has a width that ranges between 100 and 300m and is covered with very fine soft white sand. The coastal platform is characterized by the smooth slope, the sea floor by the lack of rocks therefore the entry in the sea is done smoothly, the depth of the sea growing gradually on a rather long distance. The sea is great offering funny, small waves and the view (especially at sunrise) is fantastic. Lovers and the kids enjoy collecting shells and making sand castles or sculptures
