Beaches near Baku

Hi everyone,

I'll be visiting Baku in early September with my 13-year-old son.

Part of travelling with kids is having to entertain them, so as well as visiting the sights I thought about having a half day at the seaside. Could anyone recommend a decent beach near Baku that's easy to reach by public transport?

Many thanks for any info!

The Caspian is quite polluted but 2 possible options are mentioned here: http://wikitravel.org/en/Baku

I'm not sure about the public transport though.

I wouldn't even go near the beaches. The Caspian Sea which washes up onto the Baku beaches is oil-polluted - it's quite awful. The Azeri Governement have done absolutely nothing to clean up the pollution. There are also what we call 'nodding donkeys' nearby - these are simple oil wells - and they spew out their own pollution. Mind you some of the back streets of Baku are polluted with rubbish strewn all over the place. Unfortunely, not much areas for playing with your kids.

Amburan, Sea Breeze and Jumeirah are the best options near Baku (they all have swimming pools as well) . Check out this post for more information: silkwaytravelblog.com/2013/…
