The first thing people think of when they hear about Nabran is the sea and the beach. In fact, Nabran, one of the quietest villages in Khachmaz, was first discovered as a resort in the 1960s. On the initiative of the then Trade Unions, boarding houses were built for factory workers here in order to provide them with a holiday destination. The Khazar tourist base was opened in Nabran in 1963 and Dostlug in 1975. In the second half of the past century, this area was visited by people from elsewhere. In the 1990s when the road to popular resorts such as Shusha and Kalbajar was closed after the occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh, Nabran became even more important.
Surrounded by a beach and coastal hotels and with its views of the sea and forests, Nabran is known as the most popular and expensive holiday destination in the country. When compared with other areas, the tourist infrastructure is more developed here. There is everything necessary for a perfect summer holiday here: clean air, sea, sand, sunlight, woods, beaches on the daytime and discotheques that open on the beach in the evenings make a holiday in Nabran even more entertaining. Tourist bases, boarding houses, recreation houses and hotels with different prices have been built in this area where beaches merge with forests, and this makes Nabran the biggest tourist base in the country. The growing demand for this place results in local villagers gradually leaving Nabran. Falling for very attractive offers made by businessmen who invest in the tourist sector, they sell their houses and move out of here. Those who still remain here open their doors to tourists in summer. Those who cannot find accommodation in hotels and boarding houses can ask Nabran residents for help.
