Babol Sar, Chalus, and Ramsar, on the Caspian Sea, are the country's biggest seaside resorts. The Urmia salt lake, not far from the border with Turkey, is another great place for a visit.
The Caspian Sea coasts stretch out on over 372 miles. Orange and lemon trees, rice-fields and tea plantations line the coast, which is flanked by mangroves and marshes. The beaches of Babol Sar have forever been visited by Tehran's jet set. Today, the people meet at Chalus and Ramsar, the favourite seaside resorts.
