Sail Rock, Praskoveyevka
(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • There's a decent guest house near the cliffs of the sail. It is better to live nearby, because the road from Mysore on the serpentine, is time-consuming and tiring, "Villa on the Light"-the best)!

  • Get on the boat from Gelendzhik, 5:00 1. The rock can be seen from afar. Quite a beautiful sight. The path is not easy-large and slippery rocks. Along the way, you can make beautiful photo. During the season a lot of people, all narovât climb into the hole, good photo, do not wait, everything is caked tourists. But overall not a bad place.

  • On the one hand, Yes, just rock with a hole in the sea. But we combined visit rocks with marine excursion, picnic and swim. The beach is Rocky. The road to the rock-sometimes not very easy but we got! Photo good make difficult because constantly people, one group after another. It was a hot, sunny day. Pine trees, the sea, beauty! Of dirty, plastkovyh and a lot of empty glass bottles, bags, plastic cups. After picnic removed not only for themselves but also for their not so "green" predecessors, threw two bags of garbage.

  • Amazing place, especially the remains of rocks under water, to which you can swim and enjoy the small reefs, snorkel and fins. From Praskoveevki coast cleared of debris, now crowds bear mountains of garbage to Sail. Soon and Baklava here sell. Sea pure, wild-jellyfish, seaweed, fish. I advise everyone who prizreet beach vacation.

  • Great place if you come to relax in Gelendzhik, be sure to visit this place. Pure water is very warm in the cooler Bay. The only Rocky, Rocky bottom beware, very slippery.

  • An amazing phenomenon. A piece of the rock, in the form of expanded sails, slipping from the bowels of the mountain, his in the coastal shingle. And the wind and time, unthinkable way done almost perfectly circular hole, how would prostrelennoe in a sail of a giant gun. Very beautiful and fascinating.
