The Lighthouse, Anapa

4.3
Sitting atop a steep seaside hill, The Lighthouse shines red light visible from a distance of up to 30 km (18.5 mi). This bulky black-and-gray structure features a simple octagonal shape that resembles a toy, making it one of the most popular lighthouses in the area. Snap a photo of the 21 m (69 ft) structure and take in the views of the open sea surrounding it. Since its creation in 1955, the lighthouse has become a favorite meeting spot for locals and tourists alike. To find out how to plan a trip to Anapa, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • If you want to walk along the embankment and at the same time look at the lighthouse, then in this version you can go. But the lighthouse is built up, so to photograph it beautifully will not work, and the building itself is not a masterpiece.

  • The lighthouse is like a lighthouse. Nothing special, the usual brick building, came, looked and went for a walk on

  • The lighthouse stands on a high bank on the embankment in the center of Anapa. It offers a beautiful view of the sunset in the sea. Nearby there are cafes and souvenir shops.

  • My favourite place in the town ❤️
  • Great place for photos
  • Beautiful place
  • Nice quiet place, make sure to go down to the beach, thats the best part!
  • A historic place. Near the promenade on which you can walk and relax. The waterfront offers a beautiful view of the sea. The embankment is located at a rather high altitude, on a cliff, over the sea. If desired, you can go down to the sea on special stairs-descent.
