  • We get around Europe as a Baltic Sea fans and can claim: a dream. The sand is very soft, the water clear and shallow sloping. Extremely well suited to toddlers, children. Toilets and other importances are also available, the cleanliness of the entire beach was striking. It is however quickly full on the top spots, we were at the Bulduri well-removed. Accept best train for €2.73 and the drive back, every 20 minutes.

  • Awesome Beach and spacious! The beach was very space, even if people had a lot of. The beach sand is wonderfully smooth and soft, young children their own areas, where perhaps the ankles in water. The water was low, and got to Wade far before. At the end of July, the sea the water was warm! On the beach a number of stalls, refreshments and snack food, and there was no prices.
