Somebody who has not ever camped on the beach can not understand the charm of falling asleep and awakening in the sound of waves and touched by the sun early in the morning. If you want to enjoy such experience, the beaches of Mamaia, Vama Veche and 2 Mai wait for you as soon as the season opens at the Black Sea (in May). You will enjoy the feeling of freedom given by camping outdoors, but also by the proximity to chic clubs and bars or fish restaurants and fisheries scenting to the world their delicious menu.
Romanian towns, many with a history that goes back millennia ago, have chosen rather to create a genuine future, starting from bases of ancestral heritage than to rapidly develop.
