Hg2 : The Hedonist


The closest beaches to Baku are at Shikhov (near the Ramada Hotel) on the Salyan Highway to the South West, where you can observe oil rigs on the horizon as you top up your tan, or on the Northern Absheron peninsula at Amburan, Märdäkän and Novkhani. Better, cleaner beaches, though drab by European standards, are 2-3 hours up the coast North of Baku at the ‘glamorous’ beach resort of Nabran, where much of Baku repairs when the mid-summer heat gets to be too much, making it a very busy place indeed.
