This is one of the oldest and most popular places for walking or spending time with friends or children. Decades ago it housed the first public baths: the waters of the Amur Bay were notorious for their high salt concentration and therefore for their healing benefits.
In 1953, the city opened a well-kept beach with water stations, several solariums, sports grounds, and an amusement complex. Since then, this place has been given the name “Sport’s Harbor”, or “Wellness Harbor.”
Today, people come to the Sports Harbor embankment to hang out at a cozy cafe and enjoy the sea views, or to just take a leisurely stroll along the shore. However, the water is not good for swimming any more.
The main attraction of the Sports Harbor is a wonderful light and music fountain that operates on weekends and public holidays.
