Walk, row, sail, and water-ski at Jurmala Beach--a former favorite holiday resort of Soviet communist leaders and cosmonauts. Walk down the 33 km (21 mi) long, wheelchair-friendly beach covered with white quartz sand, and look for pieces of amber. Notice the old wooden villas designed in Art Nouveau style. 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. The beach also hosts one of the largest water parks in northern Europe, offering more than 45 attractions.

Where to stay in Jurmala
