2Mai is such a beautiful place. I have been going there for a very long time now. Over the years I've seen a huge increase in tourists which is helping the locals. The saddest thing is that the tourists are actually ruining it. They come...More

The food is great, the seashore is nice, the people are calm. "2 Mai" (in english it is called the 2nd of May) is a nice place to stay on a holiday with your family. It is close to Vama Veche.
