The word “laspi” means “clay” or “mud” if translated from the Greek. The name is probably connected with the fact that during storms water disturbed the sand and pebbles and thus became “muddy”.



Laspi Bay is well-protected from western and northern winds by Mount Kush-Kaya (2175 ft.). Mountain ridge Kalanykh-Kaya (2050 ft.) and Mount of St. Elijah or Mount Atanas (2424 ft.) represent a good natural protection from eastern winds. This protection caused presence of good conditions for numerous subtropical plants to grow here in wild. Moreover, this protection became a reason why numerous big settlements existed here since ancient times. Famous Russian historian Mikhail Rostovtsev believed that there used to be a town in Laspi. This fact is proven by discoveries of medieval buildings, walls, religious edifices.



Nowadays Laspi Bay offers wonderful travel and recreation opportunities with finest warm sea, Crimean Southern Coast nature, and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and cliffs.
