Ticket Information

In one of the parts of the well-known Kamchatka Peninsula, there is one of the largest ports in the world, which is ready to accept a ship of any size. This is not a freezing bay, which is famous not only as the "gateway" of the Kamchatka Territory, but also for its amazing beauty. Vitus Bering was the first who saw the real beauty of this place and described it, but many travelers came here and noted the flavor of the area, calling the bay a pearl. Avacha Bay is quite large in size, it flows into the Pacific Ocean.

The bay is a closed in-depth part, but in terms of size it can hardly be called a full-fledged large part of the bay. It stretches for 24 kilometers in length, and the width of the entrance is 3 kilometers. The total area of ​​the bay is approximately 26 meters. Of course, in such a territory there is not one, but a number of several bays: Tarja, Tikhaya, Rakovaya, Babiya, Petropavlovskaya, Seroglazka, Mokhovaya and so on. Each bay has its own system and lighthouse.

Although now there are many types of ships, some reach seemingly incredible sizes and in order for important ports to receive them, you have to come up with special systems for lifting the ship, entering the port, and so on. Avacha Bay has a large space to accommodate any ship in the world and this is its huge bonus. In addition, a large number of ships can be stationed in the port. So that you can imagine the scale, the area of ​​the bay is 215 square kilometers, which is an incredible figure. It is also famous for the fact that, despite the harsh climate in winter, the sea surface of the bay is not covered with ice, this makes it possible for the port to function freely without problems, but also affects the local lands.

The bay of the Avacha Bay is also large, 24 kilometers, as mentioned above. Such a space will allow you to enjoy the sea, walk along the coast and admire the rocks near the coast. In general, the rocks begin there even in the underwater part, but they also fill almost the entire place near the coast. These rocks look very fabulous, especially in cold weather. They give the landscape a very unusual and mysterious look, which you want to look at without stopping. Some areas completely replace rocks, and they come straight out of the water, but there are pebbly beaches along which you can walk for a long time, you will even have time to get tired.

Bay Description

Unfortunately, the bay itself is not open to the public. It is located in the southern part of Kamchatka Island. Two rivers flow into it: Avacha and Paratunka. It is clear that the name of the bay comes from the name of one of the rivers, since in translation it carries the meaning of the bay. On its banks you can find the cities of Vilyuchinsk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. It is not for nothing that it is called the "gateway" of the region, in front of the entrance to the bay there are two capes of the Bezymyanny and Mayachny rocks, such a peculiar three-kilometer passage stands in Avacha Bay. In addition, it has a very good location, besides being part of the city, the port is well protected from serious weather problems. In addition to the fact that the bay does not freeze, the rocks help to hide the bay from strong winds and storms.

In addition to beautiful walks, you can practice diving under the water of Avacha Bay. Weather conditions and unique fauna will open the world of Kamchatka to you. This type of recreation is well developed in those parts. You can ask experts not only for good diving spots, but even the season and day when you should take your trip to the underwater world.

The main attraction of the bay is the Three Brothers rocks. They are located right in the middle of the bay and keep an old local legend. How three brothers protected the people from the wrath of the gods.

Where is

You can find the bay at the address: Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Kamchatka Territory.
