Eforie is a town and a holiday resort on the Black Sea shore, located at about 14km south of  Constanţa. It was founded by the aristocrat Ion Movilă in 1899, when he erected a hotel named Băile Movilă (Movilă Spa). In 1928, the spa was renamed Carmen-Sylva, after the pen name of Queen Elisabeth of Romania. In 1950, after the establishment of the Communist regime, the name of the city was changed again to Vasile Roaită to honor a railway worker shot dead during the Griviţa Strike of 1933. In 1962, the city was renamed yet again to Eforie Sud.

In 1966, the city of Eforie was created by merging Eforie Sud with the northern resort Eforie Nord. Formally, the city is composed of Eforie Sud, the administrative centre, and Eforie Nord, a dependent village. Many other hotels were built here over the years, most of them during the communist regime. In the south-west is Techirghiol Lake , known for the healing properties of the mud, so that the recreational tourism combines with the spa tourism. It is a quiet town with wide streets, with many villas and houses that provide tourists good comfort at reasonable prices.

Narrow beach is stretched over a length of 2km, at the feet of the seafront, that reaches the greatest height of all the romanian resorts (30m). All along the beach the entry into the sea is made smoothly, and the sand has a bigger granulation that that of Mamaia resort. The resort is a pleasant destination for both relaxation and treatment. Eforie Nord, the second size seacoast resort from Romania, is well-known for its treatments with natural factors existing here, which are available all year round. The wooded areas, that surround the resort, bring freshness and relaxation in Eforie Nord.
