Wildlife Preserve of Bolshoy Utrish, Anapa

Explore a series of lagoons at Wildlife Preserve of Bolshoy Utrish, a protected area along Russia's Black Sea coast. Visit the forested region and discover the rocky outcroppings extending into the sea, replete with thickets of old-growth juniper trees. These forests are the relics of those that once carpeted the surrounding landscape. Though the beaches are rocky, you can still kick back on the shore for an ocean view and glimpses of nearby cliffs. Keep in mind that several of the beaches in the area are popular with naturists and may not be suitable for children or families.

  • Very nice landscaping, very interesting bottom and clean water. A diving school is located here, and they put in the water interesting items that I normally got scuba without, you can spend the day soaking up the Sun and taking dips in different locations. On the promontory of good dining. That bad, so it is with free parking, no place at all. All leave cars on the road and have to walk 500 meters to the city. Parking is worth 100 p/h the first time bathed on the beach (on the right side of the beach) between the hotel "Fort Utrish" and Lake Yacht Club, passage through the hotel as-would be banned, but we normally have passed. Next on the Cape from different angles

  • When 20 years ago, it really was a reserve, you can enjoy the purity of nature, and so on. Now this place is swimming with the big tourist flow. Appropriately and the cleanliness of this place, because of the mentality of our people, as well as the omission of Governors Large Utrishom, leaves much to be desired. Litter, cigarette butts, and other attributes of "secular" life activity everywhere. Armenian Cafe which cries sanitary epidemiological station amaze with variety of cuisines. The entrance take on 500 rubles from the machine, it is with me, I'm the same in Russian private meals and other machines, but the Armenian private, pass quietly, without paying anything. I'm not a nationalist and for me no matter who you are, but I'm at home and would like to, at least, equal rights! About parking here, too simple, or 50-100 rubles per hour, or you can find over 300 p on the day. This is called come people relax, but these prices on our Armenian brothers, caught you desire. Therefore, the already narrow road, covered with countless along and across machines, not willing to give their blood. The only bright spot in all this trash Bacchanalia is five meters, has not entirely zagazhennoj pebbles in front of the sea and the sea itself.
