The participants of the "Hectare" program are creating a new tourist attraction on Sakhalin. According to the Corporation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic (KRDV), a resident of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Maxim Kovalenko and like-minded people took land near the beach on the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk, built cafes, houses for tourists and is completing the preparation of a new beach area for the summer season. 

 "The roadside cafe project has grown into a full–fledged tourist cluster - today we are developing a coastal area of 23 hectares. The entire beach infrastructure will start operating in the summer, from an amphitheater for open-air events to a charging station for electric vehicles," Kovalenko is quoted as saying in a message on the KRDV website.

As the entrepreneur said, it all started with the receipt of the "Far Eastern hectare" under the appropriate program near the village of Okhotskoye in the immediate vicinity of the sea. 

"The places are amazing, but before the program, everyone just rested like a savage. My relatives and friends and I decided to try to become pioneers of the Sakhalin beach business – we took the land for free, invested in construction and it started," he said.

The tour cluster is located near the highway connecting the village of Okhotskoye with the capital of the region. The path to Cape Velikan and Cape Svobodny passes through the village — natural locations popular with tourists. 

The new holiday destination will open in July.

"We are already finishing preparations for the season, the finishing touches are left. Parking lots, houses for living, bungalows and a beach recreation area, changing rooms, showers, sports grounds – from gyms to beach volleyball, a beach cafe and a dance floor have been built. Everything you need is here. And the highlight of the project will be an open-air amphitheater overlooking the sea," Kovalenko said.

According to him, the territory is planned to be developed further - to create conditions for winter beach activities so that vacationers have the opportunity to swim in a panoramic warm pool or steam in a sauna.

The Hectare program has been operating in the Far East since 2016, and since 2021 it has been extended to the territory of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation. To date, more than 133.8 thousand people have taken land in the Far East and the Arctic, the KRDV reported.
