Not far from the villages there is a mineral lake and mud therapeutic lakes, you can go to Taman and Veselovka, and Crimea is nearby.
If you want to relax with a child on the Black Sea, then it's better to go to the resorts of the Southern coast of Crimea or to Sudak, and you can also relax in small towns of the Krasnodar Territory. As for the Baltic Sea, there is an excellent beach in Zelenogradsk - from there it is easy to get to the Curonian Spit.
