Spit Tuzla is on Taman Peninsula and goes to sea in the direction of Ukraine. We spent there literally half a day, since the night was not part of our plans. But the place is perfect for a wild holiday with a tent. By car you can drive there at any time. The start of the Tuzla Spit is free to visit (about 2 km), but in order to get to the other half of the spit (equipped beach of Kerch), you will have to pay a couple of hundred rubles from the car. Pedestrian passage was free, at least in the month of September.

It is strange that if the payment goes exactly forThe Kerch beach (toilets, showers, dressing rooms), then why is it only 500 meters long, and the remaining one and a half kilometers is no different from the free part of the spit. But in fairness it should be said that in the paid area outside the Kerch beach there is already a whole one bio-toilet, which is very important, because you can only go to the sea in need.
We have reached the very edge of the braid, and thiskilometers of narrow strip of land. Landscapes, of course, will remain in memory for a long time. Different colors of the water on the right and left side, sandy shores and the sea wind, raising the waves. And from a distance this miracle looks impressive at all. In some ways she looks like Spit Dolzhanskayahowever, all the braids are most likely similar.
The history of the Tuzla Spit is quite interesting, becausethat it is bulk and used to be an island. More precisely, about 100 years ago, it was just a scythe, but for convenience, local fishermen in 1925 dug a small canal at its base to cut their way. After the storm, the passage turned into a wide strait, and the spit became the island of Tuzla and existed in this form right up to 2003, when a second attempt was made to restore the spit. The first attempt in the 40s of the last century failed. So, during the year trucks drove the ground day and night, and now we can see the Tuzla braid as it is. Its length is now about 4 kilometers, and its width is gradually increasing, due to the sand and shells applied by the sea. Now this place has become the hallmark of the Taman Peninsula.
Initially, the Tuzla Spit was about 11 long.kilometers Where are the rest now? Part remained not poured out, and the other part, as was the island, remained to them. Therefore, now there are already two geographical formations - Tuzla Spit and Tuzla Island. And the latter, belongs, oddly enough, to Ukraine, after the ballots for the elections to the local council were not brought there. The local residents of the island petitioned for the reassignment of their village from Temryuk district to Kerch. Therefore, after the collapse of the USSR, Tuzla Island turned into a foreign country. Territorial feuds continue to this day, since the one who owns the island owns the Kerch Strait, and there already the Sea of Azov ...
