Palanga Beach, Palanga

4.3
#1 of 29 in Outdoors in Lithuania
Stretching alongside the Baltic Sea, Palanga Beach boasts soft white sand and impressive dunes. Locals, Lithuanian vacationers, and international tourists flock here to sunbathe and splash in the chilly water. Though cold, the sea is remarkably clean and clear. A long pier juts into the ocean, and the beach gets most crowded around this area. Those who prefer a more tranquil sunbathing session should stake out a spot a good distance from the pier. You can buy chebureki (a popular pastry in much of Eastern Europe and Central Asia) and drinks from one of the vendors up and down the sandy stretch.

    regarded as the best beach in the Baltics and rightly so, lots of boardwalks throughout the dunes to take shelter from the sun  more »

    The main pedestrian street Basanavichus leads to the famous sandy beach framed by dunes and pine trees. The sand here is fine and delicate. The water is cold (even in the heat) and transparent. The beach is beautiful in rainy days (for me)-freedom, space, stunning the air. On sunny days, here there's not an inch.
