Cape Tobizin is the southernmost point of Russky Island. It was named after the Russian admiral Ivan Romanovich Tobizin. It has cliffs in height of 30-50 meters, a stone platform where the lighthouse is located. From the east, the peninsula is washed by the waters of the Karpinsky bay, and from the west by the Bays Ostrovnaya and Novy Djigit.
A low isthmus cluttered with rocks connects Cape Tobizin with the peninsula, bounding the bay of New Djigit from the east. A low stony foreland departs from the cape.
The cape is famous for its extraordinary rocks, which due to millions of years of weathering have taken the most wonderful shapes. The peninsula was extremely interesting to geologists who studied the history of the appearance of the region by studying the relief of the rocks.
The cape was explored in 1862 by an expedition of Lieutenant-General Babkin. Thanks to the results of the expedition, the Hydrographic Department of the Marine Ministry published the first Russian naval maps of the northwest coast of the Sea of Japan and the Bay of Peter the Great with large-scale plans for gulfs and bays.
