Getting there & away
There are frequent bus services to both Simferopol (23uah, 1¾ hours, up to 20 buses each way daily in season) and Feodosiya (15uah, 1½ to 1¾ hours, up to 20 each way per day in season) but at the time of research there were significantly more available seats to Simferopol. So if you come to Sudak in high season and are travelling on/back to Koktebel or Feodosiya, get a ticket out of Sudak as soon as possible.
Unofficial ‘taxis’ will assist stranded travellers. A place in a private car will cost around 20uah to 30uah to Koktebel and 40uah to 50uah to Feodosiya, but it can take time for the driver to find other passengers. Sudak is by no means the only Ukrainian town with this set-up, but here it’s particularly rapacious.
