Planning a beach vacation? Romania may not be the first place that comes to mind. However, this small, stretch of sand between Lake Siutghiol and the Black Sea, is the most popular resort area in Romania, creating a postcard-worthy setting for soaking in the sun’s rays and sipping fruity drinks. The area is home to very few year-round residents, and accommodations range from camping and the most budget-friendly hotels to high-end villas. Mamaia Beach is a favorite for all types of travelers during the warm summer months, so arrive early to find your perfect place on the sand.
You can also take the train from Bucharest to Constanta city, and then take a bus to Mamaia. The train journey takes roughly 3 hours. However, from Constanta’s main railway station you need to board bus number 100 which takes you to Mamaia. North Americans can easily catch a flight to Bucharest from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Mexico and many more.
