  • See Jurmala and its beach with the snow? Spectacular! An expanse of snow covering the sand and across the azure sea.

  • Walked along the beach of Jurmala on November 5. The weather was wonderful. easy cold and bright beautiful Sun. Strolled across the narrow strip of wet sand on one side the sea, on the other hand, snow-covered beach. The beach is wide and very long. Space enough for everyone: kids playing in the snow, the players chased the ball, couples in love wandering along the water holding hands. Just a fairy tale) winter sea wonderful, and Jurmala beach is probably the best place to enjoy this beauty.

  • Were in November, navale first day went to sea when went to snow. The sea storm sea gun wildly, was castle with snow, visibility is almost zero, but it was perfect:))) on the second day all changed dramatically-the Sun and the sea became visible:) the beautiful sea, sand and snow. by the way there is a track for walking along the beach with flashlights that can walk leisurely in the evening and listen to the sound of waves
