Beach tourism is a passive form of tourism, leisure on spa resorts with comfortable living conditions.
Beach tourism is particularly dynamically developing on Alakol and Balkhash lakes and on Kapshagay water reservoir in Almaty oblast. Even small reservoirs areas have rich potential for the development of beach tourism. An example is "Eight lakes" recreation area. There is a considerable amount of such artificial ponds in the oblast. Maybe with less comfort, but they are more affordable.
