Sea and sand
The Baltic Sea boasts many advantages over some of the Mediterranean Sea resorts. It provides large expanses of shallow water and wide beaches full of clean fine sand for children!
Which are the most beautiful beaches around the Baltic Sea? That is a difficult question. The River Vistula Spit has the whitest sand and the ones on the Hel Peninsula are unique because they are beaches along the Bay of Puck as well as the open sea. The beaches are the widest around Swinoujscie and are lined with 93m high sheer cliffs on Wolin Island.
All resorts have lifeguards, rental of beach umbrellas, deckchairs and windbreaks, changing rooms and showers installed on the beaches to rinse away the sand and salt water. After spending time on the beach visitors can visit some of the popular water parks, the one in Darlowek has pools with heated sea water, playgrounds or the many interesting sights of the region. Tourists should also not forget about the seal sanctuary on the Hel Peninsula or the butterfly house in Miedzyzdroje. Children should definitely enjoy the Slowinski National Park which is a vast sand-pit along the coast. Some of the sand dunes here are large enough to be climbed and rolled down! Large attractions for tourists are the local cruises.
The EU Blue Flag flutters over several of the swimming areas. This is a guarantee of a clean environment, safety and access to the beach. The average temperature of the Baltic Sea is between 17°C and 21°C in the summer.
The holiday resorts offer much diversified accommodation such as private lodgings, boarding houses, hotels or camp-sites. For the peak summer season, any accommodation should be booked well in advance, even as much as three months, not to be disappointed. There are numerous dining establishments available like restaurants, bars, local eateries and the very popular by tourists, fish and chip outlets.
