Karadag Natural Reserve, Koktebel

(4.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Karadag Natural Reserve combines sea, subtropical forests, and a plethora of animal species. Sitting on an ancient volcano, the reserve stretches across 2,874 hectares (7,102 acres). Once submerged under water, today the site conceals precious stones and serves as home to about 1,176 plant species and 5,500 types of animals. Paths cut through otherworldly geological formations shaped by wind, water, and sun over millions of years. Find the hidden grottos and climb to overlooks facing the bays. You can take a guided tour of the site, either by land or sea, and visit the nature museum and a dolphinarium.

  • A place where happen every time you come in Koktebel. It is impossible not to see on foot, from the sky, from the sea ...))

  • One moment - you should be tough enough to go for an excursion to that reserve, especially in summer, when the temperature in rocks is about 40C. But you'll be rewarded by fantastic views.  more »
  • Settlement Koktebel very nicely located in the beautiful cove of pebbles that melodiously during high tides. Mount Karadag regally perched above the Bay, it is believed that this extinct volcano. There is even a legend about a sinister Karadag zmeee dwelling in the depths of the Bay near the mountains. Its grandeur Karadag inspired many artists and poets. Maximilian Voloshin bequeathed to bury myself there and now there it mogila. This is a very beautiful place, where they spend the summer months excursions. You cannot attend it yourself-only with a guide and orderly.
