Hiking evening at the Russian island

The bridge to the Russian island made it much easier to get there. Before the bridge, the only way to get to the island was to take a ferry or a small private boat.

Now it’s only a 15-minute drive from the city centre and you’re on the island. Such getaway so close to Vladivostok is a good place to calm your mind and relax, and it attracts more and more travellers from the whole Primorsky region every year. In summer people often spend weekends at the Russian island doing hiking and barbeque.

Nevertheless, many beaches are still hard to get to and thus remain very quiet. People go there to walk on rocky beaches, listen to the sound of the sea and enjoy the sunset. Some places even remain hardly known to the general public. The roads to such places are usually made of gravel and require an off-road 4wd vehicle.
