Shikhov Beach, Baku’s favourite beach complex, lies 9.5 kilometres (5.9 miles) to the south of the city centre. Buses (number 125) go to Shikhov from Icheri Sheher for a few cents taking approximately fifteen minutes. An adjoining Aqua Park with water slides, two large swimming pools and a children’s pool along with other facilities make this one of the top beaches in Baku. You can use the loungers, colourful umbrellas and grab a drink in the bar. While Shikov may not be the best beach in the world, it still makes a beautiful place to spend a summer’s afternoon.
