Anzali

About Anzali

Birdwatchers! Kayak riders! Nature lovers! Bandar Anzali is for you. This lovely port is the ultimate break after long hours of traveling in the hot country. Breezy, and at times rainy, Bandar Anzali makes for a refreshing stop. The place is mostly known for its beautiful lagoon, and we highly recommend you hire a boatman or have a kayak ride around it. This is also one of Iran’s main ports, so be prepared for giant ships and the busy port life. But it isn’t all gas and noise. Here, you’ll get to try some of the freshest most unique fish caught straight from the Caspian Sea, which you can share with the hospitable locals. While in the north, make sure you try the many sweet and sour side dishes and pickles that come with Anzali’s main cuisine.
