Arcadia district is basically an old Soviet relic of aged tastelessness with beautiful girls...with their boyfriends. Many Western men come here thinking that the girls will jump into their lap. Doesn't really work that way. So you're left with a bunch of middle aged Italians, Turks, and American men looking lost. If you're going to be lost go to Ibiza pool, which is something to behold. But definitely not a place for stag groups nor families. If police see you with an open beer, good luck. And if you get caught peeing in public expect to pay 100 Euros. Taxi cab drivers are complete extortionists. The difference between paying $50 and $15 is good Russian. Oh, and remember - DO NOT bring BPS and if you change/withdraw money be sure to keep the receipt. Why? Because you can't buy Euros or dollars without proof of purchasing Hryvnia.

Imagine a cheap tacky resort in your own country, this is a lot worse. Dilapidated fairground rides, few places for decent food, only kebab shops. I went to Ibiza club but there was torrential train so was quiet, looked quite decent though.

The beach is very small, the pavements are broken.

Many flats in great houses are free. if you want to buy, good moment. Arriving at the beach of cement, I am very surprised, because I don't know where and how people can go there in Summe, they need to be in so narrow place, near to all other people. Not sand, only one little place of the beach.
Many people in Saturday's October, there. No one goes to the beach in Italy in Winter, they go the same if weather is fine.
There are any little means of transport to have a tour in arcadia's park, very long. At the end, there is Delphinarium, with sport girls over the dolphins, who play with the ball better than Maradona and Pelè together: they jump out of the water and hit with the tail. Very funny!

Went to this place and the true is, that place sucks! Is dirty and the infrastructure is old. You will find out in this place a lot do rusty metal around, small and narrow shore walk for a crowded place most of the times, and lots of garbage every where.

Arcadia beach is nothing more than average beach, with terrible sand (full of cigarettes and dog waste) due don't have a proper toilet facilities for people, you will see kids doing their "thing" close to the beach.

Is over price!!!!! Dirty and don't recommend at all to visit this place. Stay in downtown or, visit other beaches... But Arcadia.... No... Big no!

We visited beach club Itaka twice in the day time. Good service with food and drinks, clean beach, nice swimming pool. Peaceful in the weekdays, but during the weekend very loud music, dancers, competitions etc even in the daytime. So for adults, I recommend visiting from Monday to Thursday.
