Romanian Seaside is 245 km long and lies between the mouth
of Chilia Branch and Vama Veche locality. The Romanian Seaside
is recommended for spa treatment based on the marine bio-climate,
on the presence of sapropelic mud, on the lakes with water
rich in minerals, on the sulphur mesothermal springs (from
Mangalia). The features of the bio-climate, the acknowledged
qualities of the Romanian beaches and of the sea water are
offering excellent conditions for heliotherapy, sand therapy
The beaches are
looking towards east which explains the fact that the duration

sand has a fine granulation. The beaches are wide, reaching
500 m in width at Mamaia and Techirghiol. The shelf is gently
sliding, being very favorable for bathing in the sea or for
the water games.

has salinity quite low and a chemical composition, which are
very favorable for the human body and it is recommended for
sea bathing, diving and nautical sports. The sea waves and

The marine bio-climate
is characterized by: great stability of the temperature, low
precipitations, many sunny days, sea breeze, and air rich
in aerosols. This climate has a double impact on the human
body: one is stimulating the body (it is due to the great
intensity of the ultraviolet radiations and to the high level
of iodine) and the other is sedative due to the stability
of the air pressure, the humidity of the air and the slight
variation of the temperature.
The Romanian Seaside offers multiple
possibilities for leisure: bowling, tennis, volleyball, football,
badminton, riding (at the stud from Mangalia), nautical sports.
