Top beaches in Romania

There is one thing which I like most about Romania: it has such a diverse landscape that makes it the perfect destination all year round.

During wintertime, you can enjoy the snow and practice ski in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains, while during summertime you can relax at the beach to get the perfect tan.

There are many beautiful Black Sea beaches spread all over the Romanian shore; some of them are wild, while others have all the facilities you can ever dream of.

From all the strips of sand from the Romanian shore I have picked up for you the most beautiful of all.

Check them all!

1. Modern Beach

There are two beautiful strips of sand in Constanta: Modern and Trei Papuci, both being upgraded into great spots for bathing in the last couple of years.

Plaja Modern Constanța Marea Neagră

Between these two strips of sand, Modern is the one I like more because it is located right near the Constanta Casino, an architectural monument dating from the beginning of the 20th century.

Where to sleep

Belle Epoque Boutique Constanta (Adult Only) is our choice for an overnight stay close to Modern beach.

The hotel is located in a historical building close to the sea and all the interiors are decorated in baroque style.

Breakfast can be served in the room or in the common lobby located on the upper floor overlooking the sea.

2. Corbu Beach

One of the wildest and untamed beaches from the Black Sea Coast and part of a natural reserve is Plaja Corbu.

Where to sleep

Don’t expect to find luxurious accommodation around the area; there are a couple of guesthouses built in the village with the same name.

Casa Din Deal Corbu is a cosy guesthouse located in the centre of the village with a private courtyard, free parking places and beautiful terrace.

3. Vadu Beach

Other Romanian beaches ranked as the most beautiful wild beach is Vadu, a coastal destination right in the middle of nature.

This amazing strip of sand is located inside the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve, is the southern end of a long beach over 15 kilometres.

According to the local legislation you have to pay for a daily permit to have access inside the Danube Delta Reserve. The fee is really small, around 1-2 euro per person. You can pay online for the daily permit for Danube Delta or by bank transfer.

And there is something else you should know: don’t park your car on the beach as you will probably receive a big fine.

Where to sleep

Villa Romelia Vadu Beach is one of our best choices if you plan to spend some night at this magnificent Romania beach.

4. Olimp Beach

One of the best Romanian beaches for families with kids is Olimp located in the resort with the same name.

Olimp strip of sand looks completely different than most of the beaches from the Romanian Black Sea Coast.

The coastline is dotted with bays from place to place, making it the ideal place to swim and to bath for kids and for those who are not very good swimmers.

It is an oasis of peace and tranquillity, the ideal place to go if you are looking to spend some relaxing moments close to nature.

Located on the sandy tongue that separates the two worlds, the Holiday Village Gura Portitei is the place where you can admire both the flora and fauna specific to the Danube Delta and the Black Sea, a walk away from each other.

Vama Veche was and remains one of the most non-conformist holiday destinations from the Black Sea coast.

It is the place where you can spend a holiday in the middle of nature, in a special atmosphere of freedom.

Where to sleep

Accommodation is provided by hotels, few in number, but especially by villas and guesthouses.

Accommodation rates are low compared to other resorts on the Romanian coast.

Spot Vama Veche is one of my favourite places to stay when in Vama Veche because of the bohemian vibe and its colourful rooms and peaceful atmosphere!

11. Sfantu Gheorghe beach

Sfantu Gheorghe is a small fishermen’s village situated right where the Danube meets the Black sea.

It is the only village in the Delta where you can see both the Danube and the Black Sea at the same time.

For your overnight stay, I recommend you to sleep at Green Village Danube Delta, one of the most beautiful resorts from the island.

The resort has three main areas, one noisier and more animated, located near the restaurant and the reception. Another one, which is quieter located at dozens of metres away and the third one, which has a pool and is further from the reception.

It definitely contributes to the overall image of Sulina. It offers large beaches, crystal clear water, hidden water channels, quality food for low prices and quiet.

Where to sleep

There are not many options when speaking about accommodation in Tuzla as it is not a very popular place among tourists.

For our stay in this place, we chose Waitn Sea House Tuzla , an intimate guesthouse located pretty far for the beach. But this is normal for this area, as near the beach there are no constructions.
