Tokarevskiy mayak, Vladivostok
(4.6/5 based on 420 reviews on the web)
Jutting dramatically out of the sea, Tokarevskiy mayak provides fascinating year-round views. Built onto a narrow spit of land the extends out into sea, at high tides the lighthouse is sometimes completely surrounded by water; in that case you can only get there by boat. Built in 1910, the 12 m (39 ft) tower is a beacon for ships entering the Port of Vladivostok. From the tower's island you can take in views of Vladivostok and Russky Island. Remember to check the tide times in advance if you are planning to walk across the spit. Our Vladivostok vacation trip planner makes visiting Tokarevskiy mayak and other Vladivostok attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Was on the lighthouse at different times of the year. Really liked it! Came in March with friends. Lighthouse standing like an iceberg, cold, white, among the suspended sea and on ice cake near, languished at the Spring Sun seals. In May failed to reach the lighthouse, the water was high, it was overcast with drizzling rain, trawled by neighborhood and in August, among the blue sea, the lighthouse in particular stood out. White and joyful met guests. We reached perebezhkami, fleeing waves, nabegavshej on the footpath, sat at the foot, took pictures and gathered in a reverse way. To go far. But in the company of cheerful friends time flew is not noticeable, met a couple with a baby in a stroller. And, better take with you the water in hot weather.

  • The lighthouse on Jegershel'de-one of the main attractions of Vladivostok. From the nearest stop to it leads one big road, and this is the most tedious part of the path. Everything else-pleasure. After descending along the road there are a couple of typical kebab for holiday barbecue. To the lighthouse leads narrow stone path in some places you can even wet feet. The Lighthouse is required to visit!:)

  • This is one of the most beautiful places in Vladivostok. It's really fascinating to watch the city from the lighthouse, walk on a small road until you get to the lighthouse.

  • Fantastic place! At high tide, the sea covers the narrow strip of rocky land that joins the lighthouse to the mainland :) It's a long walk from town, so catch a taxi there and back ;)
  • The amazing place of interest for tourists and inhabitants of Vladivostok. Definitely It's a worth-to-see place. Folks, don't litter there nor wherever else in Vladivostok (I have to admit that we're sinking slowly into the garbage around the city, damn)
  • Must have to see, must have to walk from the city center to here or back..
  • A beautiful and very picturesque place. Perhaps it's one of those in Bishop where it is necessary to visit, that is called "default". Beautiful panorama overlooking the Russian bridge and russky island. Immediately you feel in the city, which stands by the sea! Lighthouse, incidentally, is valid-just wait, when it gets dark. In good weather, people very much! Smoke hookahs, roasted meat. "Particularly outstanding individuals" are maximally far Jeep spit than all just get in the way. Bank of course already (podzagazhen. Yes and most importantly! If you want to walk up to the lighthouse and spit flooded by the tide-be sure to bring a rubber shoes or shoes that you can soak in the sea, otherwise it is very difficult to walk. If you go barefoot-I do not know what you have to have legs! I was able to walk only until the middle of the very painful feet from sharp rocks. Recommend.
