Long, wide stretches of white sand, numerous playgrounds, and a plethora of water sports make the Blue Flag Ventspils Beach a favorite spot for locals and visitors. Stretching for 1.2 km (0.7 mi) along the Baltic, the site has beach spots as wide as 80 m (260 ft) and features impressive sand dunes nearby, which can reach up to 9 m (30 ft) tall. The water's gradual slope makes the beach suitable for both beginners and expert swimmers. Rent a lounge chair or spread out your towel, go for a swim, or just have a picnic at this scenic spot.

  • Nice beach, it is very wide and there is lot of activities for small and big children. Just heaven for kids as the parks in Ventapils as well.  more »
  • The beach of Ventspils borders directly on the harbour and is separated from it by a quay wall. At the front of the quay wall is the lighthouse of Ventspils and on the way there you will find one of the many colorful cows of Ventspils. The beach itself is miles long and is divided into different zones in the Ventspils area. In the southern area there is even a nudist beach. Dogs are prohibited on the beach, except in the designated areas. The beach is always, really always very clean. There is a playground near the quay wall. Many numbered paths lead over the dunes, all of which are led by wooden walkways through the sensitive dune landscape. This even makes it possible to get to the beach easily with a wheelchair or stroller. The dune strip is also kept very clean. The stretch of coast almost reminds me of the North Sea coast of Denmark, only that the beach in Ventspils is not quite so wide. Behind the dune area there is a park, a beach volleyball court, an extensive forest area and then the Ventspils Seaside Camping.
