Acquaintance with the unique nature of the Black Sea coast should begin with a visit to Mount Big Akhun, because it offers a beautiful view of the mountains and the coast.

Хостинский рынок

Today we will spend in the reserve, so in order not to waste time looking for a restaurant for lunch, I suggest picnic in the fresh air and enjoy nature to the maximum. At the Hostin market you can buy fresh and delicious products with you!

Тисо-самшитовая роща

The Tiso-Samshit Grove is a unique natural site within the Caucasian Biosphere Reserve. The Reserve is a kind of a museum - a repository of relict vegetation, left from the preglacial period virtually unchanged! There are twenty rare and endangered plant species listed in the Red Book. On the way we will meet the picturesque canyon "Damn Gate", prehistoric caves and a maze. And at the end of our trip you will have a magnificent view of the surroundings from the observation deck!

Пляж в Хосте

Hostin beach is immersed in greenery, the sea is always clean and small. The beach itself is small, but perfectly equipped for tourists' recreation. Take a walk and enjoy the fresh sea breeze!


After a long day outdoors, we will have dinner in a panoramic restaurant overlooking the expanse of the Black Sea. The table should be booked in advance, as there are a lot of people who want to get to this place. This is a great place for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle and try the best Mediterranean and Black Sea cuisine!
