Sail Rock, Praskoveyevka

4.5
#3 of 12 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.

  • We lived in a boarding house in the Valley, so can enjoy daily. Looks fabulous as from afar and up close. The road to the rock goes on the beach in places with very large boulders, sometimes you have to go the sea tide. I therefore recommend that bring comfortable shoes and leotards/melting. We sometimes transported on an inflatable mattress:))) stunning Pictures in any light.

  • Came to Praskoveevku to see a rock sail. Getting to it is not so simple. Especially when the tide-it will not be possible. We were lucky! I appeal to the people-be chistoplotnymi, garbage no one cleans for you, everything turns into a dump!

  • We really liked it, I advise you to go there, but the beach itself, rather than on the boat from the sea. You can get yourself. Go on the rocks and the sea. Need comfortable shoes that wouldn't be washed away and not AJ. We were with the children. Although the US and said it's not worth going with the kids, the youngest 5 years child dad picked up on the hands. And we broke rocks, and passed a little at sea. Older children very much. We even took a bag of refrigerator and on the shore not far from sails staged a picnic, we were not alone. Very beautiful place, mountain, sea. To swim there we have not dared to, large rocks off the coast, not very comfortable, but the people bathed. On the boat you this miracle videsh no more 5-10 minutes. Close and they come not only plunge willing and swim to the rocks in the Skywalk. And we took pictures with it, climbed on her.
