municipality in Khachmaz, Azerbaijan

Nabran is a city in the Northeastern region of Azerbaijan, 45 km north of Khachmaz, close to the Russian border.


Nabran is a favorite summer resort for beach lovers. During the summer, the parties and mosquitoes enjoy late hours. On weekends, the population swells with out-of-towners from Baku and surrounds. From early fall until mid/late spring, Nabran is a skeleton lacking all its summer vibrancy.

Get inEdit

From Baku's Shamahinka bus stop a van/mini bus costs 4 manat (summer prices may jump to 5 msnat).

Get aroundEdit

Nabran is small enough that you can walk everywhere. Taxis can be hard to find.


Watch a sunrise over the sea: with the sea to the east of the beach, watching a sunrise over the Caspian Sea is very beautiful.


Visit the beach: Nabran is a popular resort for beach lovers of Azerbaijan. The sea waters are the cleanest you can find in Azerbaijan. You can actually swallow a small quantity without getting deathly ill - though this is not advised. The Caspian Sea is a very polluted body of water.



Many road stands offer good food for the price. Quick, hot and tasty; a perfect way to take a break from the beach or dance floor.
