Overview

**Introduction**

Parking

Nestled in the serene and rugged coastline of Russia's Kandalaksha Bay, the Observation Deck offers a unique viewing experience of the vast Arctic landscape and the White Sea's mesmerizing waters. Unlike the sandy beaches of warmer climates, the Observation Deck is a prime spot for those looking to immerse themselves in the natural beauty and tranquility of Russia's northern shores. The area is known for its gravelly shores and the striking contrast between the pristine white of the snow and the deep blues of the sea. Activities here are tailored more towards nature observation, photography, and tranquil solitude rather than the typical beach-going pursuits. Observation Deck has few amenities, so plan your trip accordingly, although it does not support facilities for dogs, disability access, nudism, restrooms, camping, or surfing.
