  • Town of Jurmala is quite nice and different from the seaside in Italy. The beach is clean and quiet. The locals are civil and polite. There are no beggars or vendors. Really a beautiful natural park.

  • Jurmala beach is a long coastline of fine sand and with free access to the sea. On the beach, benches for sitting and watching for the Baltic, inhaling the healing pine air much nicer than swim. At least for September, quite rightly. Smoking is prohibited on the beach for debris from a fine 50 euro. And it's not an empty sound, around really good. Sun umbrellas and lounge chairs is not noticed, perhaps because it was off-season.
