  • Visited during Winter but the beach is clean ,stretches for miles. One can imagine it is perfect during the Summer months. Appears to be a sage beach.  more »
  • It is a very quiet beach, windy and little waves, popular with national and international tourists located near this region, if you want to get to swim only in summer will be good time the rest of the year temperatures are low but you can enjoy the beauty of the Baltic Sea, the sand clear and large trees by the sea that are part of this scenario.
