Anaklia is a youngest black sea resort in Georgia. Sandy beaches and sunny weather attract several music festivals to the town. Its popularity grows every year and attracts thousands of tourists and young people from all over the world.
Anaklia is the fruit of the imagination of the Spanish and Italian architects, who changed the geometry of the coastal strip with the construction of a new embankment with a length of 1 km and a park of water attractions. Here you can also find the longest pedestrian bridge in Europe, with a length of 540 meters, which serves as a link between the resort and nearby villages.

Also, the sea is much more clean, due to its remoteness from large cities, and shallow that is perfect for a holiday with children.
