Batumi is one of the most important sea ports of Georgia and happens to be one of the most popular sea side resorts too. It is the most flourishing city of the country. The first step on the way to turn Batumi into an important sea port was made in the 19th century on behalf of the Nobel brothers. The second wave of the renovations came a few years ago, when the new government of Georgia decided to transform Batumi into the most attractive sea side resorts on the Black Sea cost. Now Batumi is really very attractive with its brand new luxury hotels, casinos and night clubs, dancing fountains and modern architecture. Batumi is the most popular entertainment center for young people. A lot of events take place there. Batumi is the host city of the Black Sea Jazz Festival every year. Every summer and at the New Year government organizes performances of the world known artists and singers like Sting, Placido Domingo, Enrique Iglesias and so on. There are some other developing sea side resorts on the Georgian coast of the Black Sea side as well and Kobuleti is one of them.
Kobuleti is well known for its micro climate. The area is specifically healthy for the people with heart problems. Because of its unique climate Kobuleti has a very good potential for family tourism. It is not as big and noisy as Batumi, has a very nice and modern entertainment park and a very clean sea. Distance between Batumi and Kobuleti is about 30 km. A few kilometers north from Kobuleti there is another sea side resort Ureki.
Ureki’s magnetic sand is famous for its medical purposes and attracts children and adults with orthopedic problems.
Anaklia is a brand new resort, which develops very fast and has some newly built hotels there.
