Nida Dunes, Nida
(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Representing some of the highest sand dunes in Europe, provide picturesque views in an unusual setting. You can walk to the top of one of the highest dunes, Parnidis (52 m (171 ft)), via a clearly marked wooden staircase. It is forbidden to go off path, as this contributes to the deterioration of the already endangered dune. An observation point offers views of the Baltic Sea, Curonian Lagoon, and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad across the border. The sundial situated here was erected in the mid-1990s but looks considerably older due to storm damage. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Nida holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Nida Dunes and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Lovely walk (around 1km) up to the end of the dunes overlooking the sea, offering stunning views once there. Highly recommend. 
  • We found ourselves at a very wide Beach, with early-20th-century buildings overlooking the sea. Lively features beachfront restaurants bars where you can enjoy a coffee. The atmosphere is particular, the Baltic Sea is dotted with cabins far the beach in Belle Epoque style. Crowded in summer the beach is open access. We arrived in this peninsula from Lithuania, with a ferryboat, the trip takes 5 minutes with a great service. To get to the beaches crossing the peninsula and you have to pay an entrance fee, which is required, commensurate with the length of stay. Are accessed through some kind of exit where a photograph the license plate. The trip worthwhile, the panorama is unique.

  • The peninsula of Nida, world heritage! and with that he said almost everything: worth the trip in these lands a bit off the beaten track of tourism ... Although it's best to avoid the month of August (you can reach the 2-3 h of waiting to get back with the small ferry up to Klaipeda ...! at least that no one wants to do a visa to move from Russia! (Beware though, most car rental companies do not allow you to travel on Russian territory!
