Ventspils Blue Flag Beach and Southern Pier with a viewing tower
During the swimming season, the Blue Flag flutters on the Beach showing that the sea water corresponds to the international environmental quality standards and the Beach has been fully facilitated.
The seashore has almost an 80 m wide beach of fine white sand and dunes that in some places reach a height of 9 m. The Blue Flag Beach stretches for 1.2 km. Equipment on the Beach allows also disabled people to take a rest at the sea: they can reach the Beach using plank-ways and dwell on specially designed platforms.
Taking into consideration the vacationers’ health it is prohibited to smoke on the major part of the Blue Flag Beach area.
A professional rescue service functions on the Ventspils Beach. A viewing tower has been established on the Southern Pier next to the Beach (19 m above the sea level).
