Every year remains less places of the wild nature on Southern Coast of Crimea... But in Simeiz such place exists, it is area of a rock "the Swan Wing" and "Diva" cliff...

The famous sea resort, Simeiz is situated 17 km to the west from Yalta, between the Black Sea and the southern side of Crimean mountains, being the part of the so-called “Big Yalta” – chain of resorts, spreader along the coast. Located near the bottom of romantic legendary Cat-mountain, Simeiz has several nice beaches with clean water. The town was the favorite place of rest for many Russian noble families since the first half of the XIX-th century, when a fashionable resort had been established here by Count I.A.Maltsov. Picturesque villas and cottages like villas “Mechta” (“Dream”) or “Ksenia” are really beautiful and still remind of those times.

Next to the “Diva” Cliff (by its shape it resembles a woman with flowing hair, who is coming out of the sea), you will find a cozy beach with clean, sparkling water and picturesque rocks. The basic advantage of this coast is transparent water that is a determining condition for a underwater photo)) So don’t forget to take your Krab and Fisheye Submarine with you!! To tell the truth, the fauna of coastal waters is not so rich and various, but as for me it’s not really important, cause you can take some good shots of yourself or else your friends))

Next to Simeiz, there is the Blue Gulf with a wonderful aqua park, where the whole day would pass in entertainment.
But for me Simeiz is even more beautiful in winter or early spring… no tourists… empty-cozy-tiny streets…))
And make sure you go up on top of the “Diva” cliff! It’s a fantastic feeling! Fantastic view! Fantastic wind in your hair!
B&W shots by dmigor color and supersampler ones by me)) Sorry, i didn’t put a “dot” on the map, cause it doesn’t work(( don’t know why…
