First time visiting this place. Had really nice sunny summer day there. There are a lot of cafes and lounges where to enjoy some refreshing drinks and good food. more »
Very interesting place, fresh air, cafes and just simply benches you can find here. This is a good escape from Riga for everyone who wants to forget about concrete jungle and have a eyes relaxation watching seaview in Jurmala. Don't waste your time, take a cab here and have a great time on a beautiful sand walk.
Didn't know anything about Latvia's beaches, was pleasantly surprised by this long white stretch. Very peaceful thanks to Covid. Not much there, the town is from 1985 but it has a certain charm.
