One of the best beaches in Baltic states. Good transport connection with Riga (train, buss). the long sand beach with lots of beach bars and attractions. Just couple hundred meters away from Jurmala..... more »
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.
