Arkhipo-Osipovka ( _ru. Архи́по-О́сиповка) is a seaside village ("selo") and a Black Sea resort under the jurisdiction of the town of Gelendzhik in Krasnodar Krai, Russia. Population: 7,613 (2006 est.); ru-census|p02=8066|p89=7242

The settlement on the shore of the Vulan Bay originated as the Cossack stanitsa of Vulanovskaya ( _ru. Вулановская) in 1864. Some twenty-five years later, the village was renamed after Arkhip Osipov, a Russian soldier who had sacrificed his life to save his comrades-in-arms from the onslaught of the Circassians in 1840. There is until 2004.

The vicinity of Arkhipo-Osipovka contains several waterfalls and the scarce remains of an ancient Roman fortification. The economy is dependent on the Beregovaya compressor station, one of the largest in the world, which is part of the Blue Stream pipeline system which carries natural gas from Russia to Turkey and then to Europe.
