Arcadia

Arcadia Beach is one of the most colorful in terms of the number of entertainment in Odessa. It is located in the Primorsky district of Odessa and is considered one of the best in the city. Arcadia is located in the delta of a dried-up river, so the descent to the beaches is rather gentle, not steep. The beach is mostly sandy.

The history of Arcadia begins at the end of the nineteenth century. At that time in place of the current Arcadia was only a rocky and completely unsuitable beach for rest. The discoverer of Arcadia is the Belgian Emile Cambier, who was the director of the Odessa agency of the Belgian horse-railroads. Cambier noted that from here you can get to the beach by a natural gentle slope, while a lot of Odessa's beaches were steep slopes and cliffs.

At the same time, the name of the beach appears - "Arcadia" - the name of the land of Greece, which the poets sang as a fertile, paradise of nature. Since 1910, the outdated "horse" is being replaced by electric trams, which has simplified the road to Arcadia. At this time Arcadia is already known for its noisy parties and festivities, which somehow could compete with modern ones.

Here you can use various paid services: purchase umbrellas, deck chairs, use shower cabins with fresh water, storage cameras, WC. If necessary, you can contact the rescue service, the police department and the medical center, which are located on the beach.

The beach season in Arcadia lasts about 4 months: from mid-May to September. During this period, the water temperature ranges from +17 to +25 degrees. Arcadia is a wonderful combination of sea and green spaces.

After the end of the 1917 revolution, the dacha of the Odessa magnates departed for the sanatoriums, instead of them houses and party houses began to appear around Arcadia, hotels were being built. The period of active development of Arcadia falls on the 90s. There are various summer playgrounds and modern nightclubs. The last reconstruction of Arcadia was carried out in 2014. Arcadia for many years remains one of the favorite and popular resorts, both in Odessa and in the city.
