The town is situated 23 km east of Chișinău on the right (western) bank of the Dniester river. During the Soviet era, several million tons of sand were brought in to create a wide artificial beach. Today it retains a small, mostly local, tourist trade.
Close to the town lies an airfield, popular for parachute jumping and general aviation.
The town day is celebrated on November 8.
