Wildlife Preserve of Bolshoy Utrish, Anapa

(3.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Wildlife Preserve of Bolshoy Utrish and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Anapa tour planner.

  • It's certainly not fun in the truest sense of the word-a very wild. Here should aim for those who prefer natural beauty rather than creations of human hands. Magnificent views of the sea, the impressive vegetation, cute Rocky trails, entangling the reserve of this network, walk-don't want to. Mental relaxation and good physical activity. What else do you need?) Yes, at the bottom, below the cliffs-nudist beach.

  • Dolphinarium on the high seas! You can see how and where dolphins. Better get on the boat.

  • Want views, hiking, wild sea vegetable variety-go here! Visited p. Big Utrish by car out of curiosity, with children, walked, climbed on Mount pofotalis', on the coast in August, Apple had nowhere to fall, and the shore of big stones in the shops very expensive products, we quickly speklis' and get back home. This is for adult tourists-savages, I believe wildlife lovers, though he and reserve.
