  • Very interesting place, fresh air, cafes and just simply benches you can find here. This is a good escape from Riga for everyone who wants to forget about concrete jungle and have a eyes relaxation watching seaview in Jurmala. Don't waste your time, take a cab here and have a great time on a beautiful sand walk.
  • Didn't know anything about Latvia's beaches, was pleasantly surprised by this long white stretch. Very peaceful thanks to Covid. Not much there, the town is from 1985 but it has a certain charm.
