Tourists Prohibited from Removing Glass from Unique Bay Beach in Primorye

Tourists Prohibited from Removing Glass from Unique Bay Beach in Primorye


The press service of the Primorsky Krai government reported that signs will be installed on the beach of Steklyannaya Bay prohibiting the removal of colored glass. This measure is aimed at preserving the unique recreation area.

Steklyannaya Bay is famous for its beach, which is covered with multicolored glass polished by time and the sea. Tourists often not only admire this recreation area, but also collect pebbles as souvenirs. At the same time, Primorsky tour operators warn guests of the beach that such natural souvenirs should not be taken away. Otherwise, in 10-15 years the bay will turn into an ordinary beach.

Primorsky scientists have long said that over time, under the influence of sea water, the colored glass will wear down to sand. In order for this special place of Primorye to please the residents and guests of the region for as long as possible, the local authorities urge to leave the pebbles on the beach.
