Sail Rock, Praskoveyevka

4.6
#3 of 9 in Parks in Gelendzhiksky District
Look for Sail Rock by the beach, so slim that it resembles a giant biscuit dipped in the sea. Some 30 m (100 ft) tall and 20 m (65 ft) long, the rock has a width of barely 1 m (3 ft) and stands almost vertical. Research shows that it was once much longer, but has eroded over time. This monument of national importance was once reportedly shot at by battleships; however, they failed to bring it down. Notice the one large hole near its base: the only evidence of these attacks. You can pause for a break at the beach that surrounds it. For Sail Rock and beyond, use our Praskoveyevka trip tool to get the most from your Praskoveyevka vacation.

  • On the eve before the trip to Praskoveevku neighbor advised to go on a tour of Seville for 700-800 rubles. I must say! Don't settle! It is better to get up early, wear comfortable footwear and 108 bus for a modest amount of access to the beach (from there know perfectly well where to go). In the morning rock beautiful and no crowds of tourists wanting to her capture. So nobody potoropit you make a lot of shots and simply enjoy the beauty of nature. Total: approximately 150 rubles round-trip from Gelendzhik + food in the dining room of the 250 r

  • Can't tell about this miracle after visiting Ooty. Went to a rock on the ship "Empire". The excursion itself-the horror! An extreme, a crowd of nearly 300 people or more, all the way orushhaja music, because all this crowd gathered on the beach in Praskoveevke-and all in a sea of broth from the people. The rock immediately went to the crowd, because we watched from afar. But still pretty close to understand as it is beautiful! Very much. She really looks like a sail, we looked at from all sides, yet sailed. Thin, but high. Total-rock see recommend an excursion to the "Empire"-only for very fastidious people.

  • Very impressive both by sea and by land, but by land need to go in krosovkah, because in some places it is necessary to overcome the obstacles. From Russia (Beach) go about 500 meters.

  • Very beautiful place, clean water, but that would get to the rocks should preferably be in sneakers: pass overlap huge blocks, climb in the shale is dangerous.
