Not only inaccessibility, but also otherfeatures the beach "Albatross" in Sochi. The photo clearly shows that it is sandy. True, the sand here is gray, because its base is the remains of volcanic rocks. Small pebbles here also comes across, but there are not many of them.

The length of the beach is up to 200 meters, and the width is not less than20 and not more than 30 meters. The sea in this part of the coast is characterized by high water transparency and tranquility. Waves are rare here, because breakwaters are built. Sunset in the sea is quite safe, without rocks, but the depth begins only 4-6 meters from the shore, so parents should carefully look after their children. On some days to the edge of the water, algae are nailed, but mostly on the beach is clean. The beach opens at 8 am, closes at 8 pm, the entrance is free.
