You can rent water bicycles, or have a drink at the beach cafe. You also can find playgrounds, small benches, football fields, volleyball courts, kite-surfing and windsurfing stations, health resorts, and spa centers.

  • 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.
  • A combination of a nice sandy beach with a forest of ever greens behind which gives it an nice feel. Very unlike the west of Europe. Shower, toilet and changing facilities also available and not too crowded.
  • It's nice to relax. The water could be cleaner. But the beach is tidy. I recommend to visit.
  • Really nice beach. A lot of places to do physical activity, beach bars and nice people.
