Miracles at every step
Trekking lovers should definitely visit Lysa Gora to get a bird’s eye view of the bay. One of the favorite attractions of many is the observation deck “Swallow’s Nests”. It was named for the calcareous rocks in relief, dotted with miniature holes. From here you have a breathtaking view of the sea and the city.
Another tourist mecca is the Utrish Nature Reserve. A corner of nature, unique in beauty and landscape, occupies almost ten thousand hectares. In summer, two hiking and two water routes will open here: “Savina Shchel”, “Old Road” (from Sukko to Big Utrish), a walk along the sea to the Zhemchuzhny waterfall with landing on the shore, and one more – for Little Utrish. And on the “Canyon” hiking trail you can see the Interrupted rock, to which, according to legend, Prometheus was chained. The length of the route is only three kilometers, and it is completely safe.
A popular attraction of Anapa is Bugaz Spit, which stretches for 12 kilometers from the village of Blagoveshchenskaya to the village of Veselovka, with a width of 100 to 300 meters. The place attracts vacationers with its incredible microclimate, picturesque herbs and nearby estuaries that are a source of healing mud. Due to the special geographical location of Bugaz Spit, there are many windy days here, so in the off-season lovers of extreme recreation come here – kitesurfers and windsurfers. In recent years, the infrastructure has been actively developing, kitesurfing schools are being created, where beginners can rent equipment and try to get on the board under the guidance of a professional instructor.
