One day at the Russian´s Cove

The Russian’s cove is one of the most beautiful beaches and is very close to Casería del Carmen in Albuñol (only 8 minutes away by car).

It is a very quiet beach but you have to make a tricky and narrow downhill path before reaching the beach. It is a nudist cove. 

It is called ‘The Russian’ because in 1921 a Russian lieutenant named Basilio Lukianov fled the Soviet Union and he settled here.

He became an important character and gave this beach a name. He was the one who built the access to it and a fountain that still remains in the area.

To access, you must leave the car on the road, parked on the side. There is not much space, but very few cars pass along that road.

The way down is done in 5-10 minutes. ¡Use trainers, so you don´t slip!
