Villages with developed infrastructure are located on the coast. The beaches in this region are well maintained, the choice of accommodation from apartments to five—star hotels is quite large.

According to travelers, the following resorts are considered good and inexpensive options where it is better to relax in August:

  • Loo. The village is located 25 km from the center of Sochi. Budget guest house rooms can be found in Gorny Loo. You can relax with children on specially equipped beaches (“Transparent”, “Dolphin” and “Aqualoo”). Among the marine activities at the resort, jet skiing and bananas are available.
  • Lazarevskoye. This neighborhood of Greater Sochi is loved for its comfortable beaches, a wide range of entertainment and transport accessibility. Most of all, tourists like the beaches “Bagration” and “Dolphin”.
  • Nebug. The modern resort of the Tuapse district is loved by both families with children and single travelers. You can relax here on the municipal beaches. Admission is free. Sun beds and umbrellas can be rented.

The easiest way to get from Moscow to Sochi district is by plane. Flights on this route are operated by such airlines as UTair, Aeroflot, Pobeda, Ural Airlines and many others. But you will have to go to Nebug by train or transfer to a bus in Adler.


They love this direction not only because of the healing climate, the gentle sea and the many kilometers of beaches. Abkhazia is also famous for its mountains, waterfalls, lost villages and picturesque valleys.

Well-equipped beaches are located in:

  • New Athos;
  • Gudauta;
  • Pitsunda;
  • Sukhumi;
  • Gagra.

Connoisseurs of the sandy shore should pay attention to the surroundings of Pitsunda (“Captain Black”, “Fish Factory”). In Gagra, not far from the pension “Solnechny”, there is a pebble beach.

There is no direct communication with Abkhazia from Russia yet. Therefore, you will first need to get to Sochi airport (Adler). Then transfer to a bus or taxi.


Turkey is definitely on every list of ideas for “Where to go abroad in August”. The Aegean coast is suitable for families with children. In August, it is not as hot here as on the Mediterranean coast, and acclimatization takes place faster. Most of the beaches of the Aegean Sea are awarded the “Blue Flag” quality mark. The best resorts in this area are considered to be:

  • Oludeniz;
  • Kusadasi;
  • Marmaris;
  • Izmir;
  • Didim;
  • Bodrum.

The best resorts on the Antalya coast are Antalya, Alanya, Belek, Side and Kemer. Hundreds of all-inclusive hotels on the first line offer first-class conditions for family, romantic and youth holidays.

There are regular direct flights from Russia to Turkey. Russians do not need a visa to visit the country.


In summer, this destination attracts travelers primarily with low prices compared to Turkey.

The water temperature in the sea is comfortable, you can go diving and snorkeling, but the sun is very active — there is a risk of getting burned quickly. Experienced travelers are advised to stay in the room at noon.

Traditionally, tourists choose hotels in Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh. The most popular in the 2024 season: Rixos Sharm El Sheikh 5*, Pickalbatros Royal Moderna Resort 5*, Rixos Premium Seagate 5*, Pickalbatros Aqua Park Sharm El Sheikh 5*, Meraki Resort Hurghada 4*, Nubian Island 5*.

Sahl Hasheesh resort is suitable for those who want to retire. This resort is famous for its clean sea and sandy beaches. There are also several interesting dive sites here: diving fans will be able to admire the reefs and see the flooded city.

Almasria Universal, Aeroflot, Red Wings and Red Sea Airlines operate direct flights from Moscow to Hurghada and Sharm. 

You only need a visa to Egypt if you plan to stay outside the Sinai Peninsula. It is issued at the airport, immediately upon arrival.

Where to go in August in Russia for outdoor activities

Hiking enthusiasts should pay attention to domestic resorts. It is interesting to spend holidays and vacations on Lake Baikal and in Karelia. At this time, it is beautiful and moderately warm here.


Tourist spots are located from Irkutsk, wild and protected — closer to Buryatia. In addition, there are comfortable places for beach holidays on the coast of Lake Baikal. Travelers settle both at camp sites and in tents. 

However, if you want to swim, you should go here in the first half of August. For “water procedures”, places where the water warms up quickly are best suited — bays with gentle slopes and not very deep coves. However, the “walruses” will certainly like Listvyanka — even on the hottest days, the water temperature here does not rise above +18. The bays of Chivyrkuy Bay, Enkhaluk and the Small Sea are suitable for warmer water lovers. 

You can admire the rocks in the Sandy Bay. The windy but safe bay of Ambassadorial Sor is suitable for windsurfing.

The easiest way to get to the lake is from Moscow. Siberia, Ural Airlines and Aeroflot airlines fly to Irkutsk.


This direction attracts those who like extreme, or vice versa — a calm and contemplative vacation. You can still swim this month. The beaches of Onega and Ladoga lakes are considered the most comfortable. Those seeking solitude should pay attention to Topozero, Vygozero, Kyokkosenlampi and Vodlozero.

With younger children, be sure to visit Kizhi and the open-air museum-reserve. Teenagers can be taken to the Ladoga region, surrounded by dense forests.

Note to tourists

  • Those wishing to relax by the sea in August in the Krasnodar Territory need to plan their vacation in advance. Budget accommodation options are flying fast here.
  • When going on an excursion or to the beach in Turkey and Egypt, be careful. The August sun is bright and active: you can not only get burned, but also get heat stroke.
  • But on Lake Baikal in the second half of August it can be cool, especially in the evening and at night, so you need to take warm clothes with you.
  • In Karelia, in August, an abundance of mushrooms and cloudberries appears in the forests.
  • If you are going to Abkhazia, purchase medical insurance in advance: the policy of the Russian Federation is not valid in this region.
