Tour information

Cape Velican (Giant) is a natural site with one the most beautiful and impressive shorelines across Sakhalin. Rocks stretch along the entire shoreline from Ptichiy Cape to Velican Cape and form fancy shapes resembling a lion emerging from the sea, a mysterious castle, or the head of an ancient warrior who fell asleep at the water edge. The rock arches created by the greatest of all architects – Nature impress with their size. On top of these rocks and arches are blatant seagulls, gannets and whisking swifts. Spruce forest runs along a narrow coastal line where fir trees turn their “back” on the sea hiding from the wind.
