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.

    Only a photograph. Children are not very interesting. There is a café. Pro single story, prices generally anywhere near local attractions.

    A point of interest? Once you can walk if the weather allows, and so did not look at that. Promenade around the lighthouse, near beach high, many are photographed against the backdrop of waves and seagulls,

    Reminiscent of the coast of the Crimea. Romantic café with same name. Interior is reminiscent of the Italian cafe. whickered at stolikahlampy furniture with fabric shades. paved path leading to the promenade along the edge of the embankment. White sill. followed by steep rocky coast and boundless sea above all this magnificence stands the lighthouse.

    Excellent walk from the city centre to the lighthouse and even further. Look chic, long walk. In this part of the promenade is very quiet, no annoying shutov, photographers and hucksters. Photo from there.

    Cote d'Azur, caressing rays of Sun tickle the Oktyabrsky face. Nice sea air fills your lungs. All very harmoniously. It is worth to visit!
