Isachenko is an island of the Kirov group in the Kara Sea north of Russia. A level beach, under the right conditions, can provide a landing site for access to this remote island. Ashore is a deserted station, the operation of which was likely discontinued in 1993. The shoreline is a thriving intertidal zone where clams bury down into the soft sand and sponges thrive on mussel shells next to sea stars, cold-water lobsters and annelid worms. Along the shoreline, it is sometimes possible to see footprints left by massive polar bears, as they patrol the coast in search of an easy meal.
