Abstract

Black Sea Coast Motorway was recently built along the shore (about 600 km), and a number of beaches were destroyed. Now there are a couple of short beaches in Eastern Black Sea region. People need new beaches. On the other hand, in recent years, plateau and nature tourism have begun to gain an importance in the Eastern Black Sea. Recreational beaches together with nature tourism will be an option for tourists who intend to come to region. Additionally, sandy beaches will help to protect the new road from the waves.
