The Baltic Sea coast

The shores of the Baltic Sea in Latvia are almost 500 km long. The Kurzeme coast is washed by mighty waves from the open sea that, up north at Cape Kolka, meet the calmer waters of the Gulf of Riga, where the most popular stretches are the white sandy beaches at Riga and Jurmala, and the rocky beaches of Vidzeme.

Latvia’s lengthy coastline never ceases to surprise with its dunes, steep cliffs, sandstone outcrops, impressive rocks and caverns.

The coastline owes much of its charm to the fishing villages, the multiple areas untouched by civilisation, imposing port cities, and the popular resort city of Jurmala.
