The recreational resources of Primorye are created by a combination of a mild climate, the attractiveness of mountain-taiga and sea landscapes, the presence of sources of curative mud and mineral waters. Due to this, most of the Far Eastern sanatoriums (more than 40) are concentrated in the Primorsky Territory. At the same time, they can accommodate more than 6.5 thousand vacationers.
One large summer seaside resort in Primorye is the Khasansky District (Vityaz, Slavyanka, Andreevka, etc.), which contains numerous picturesque islands, beaches, bays and bays with warm sea water. It is no coincidence that it was here in 1997 (in the Bay of Expedition) that the first health-improving area of the Primorsky Territory was allocated. The bay contains the most valuable deposits of silt sulphide mud, superior in its medicinal properties to many others.
Lake Khanka mud is also known, and most of the sanatoriums in the suburbs of Vladivostok operate on the basis of sea therapeutic muds of the Uglovoe Bay: Amur Bay, Okeansky Voenny, Sadgorod, Primorye, Moryak, "Ocean", "Builder", etc.
More than a hundred sources of medicinal mineral waters are registered in the region. They are most developed in the Kirovsky region - at the Shmakovsky spring.
The Shmakovka resort is located in the picturesque valley of the Ussuri River. The healing factors of the resort: warm and dry summers, sunny and calm winters, rich taiga vegetation and Shmakov's "Narzan". In Shmakovka today there are sanatoriums: "Zhemchuzhina" (for 400 beds), "Emerald" (for 500 beds), Shmakovsky Military Far East Military District (for 500 beds) and a sanatorium named after 50th anniversary of October (400 beds).
Medicinal mud was also found in the Amur Bay near Nakhodka. On their basis there is a sanatorium-preventorium "Pearl".
