Kipsala Beach was opened for swimming this year. It's located between Cable Bridge and newly created yacht park.
The summer is ending, so don't miss the last chance to enjoy the most urban beach in Latvia :)
Havana Club Lounge is the name of the first successful private beach in Latvia, located in Dzintari, Jurmala.
Single time entry costs 20 LVL (which is around 30 EUR), prices for drinks and other extras are above average, which makes this place affordable for elite people only.
Although this is the only good place in the whole Jurmala, where you can have a glass of wine watching at sunset.
Travelling around the world I understand that beaches in Latvia are ones of the most beautiful in the world.
White sand, blue skies and almost no annoying insects. Unfortunately they are like this only few months per year :(
This is the next photo after my stop in Jaunkemeri. The next is Kupla priede Tower.
Cape Kolka is extreme geographical point of Latvia and one of Lativan nature monumenets.
It marks the border between Baltic Sea and Riga Gulf, unfortunately every year Cape Kolka is getting smaller and smaller because of being eaten by the Baltic Sea.
Vakarbuļļu peldvieta (Vakarbulli Bathing site) is the only premium beach within Riga borders.
Beach has got green flag status, which signify of clean water. Also here is a secure car parking, special places for disabled people and children. It is located in one of the most remote Riga parts called Buļļi (Bulls)
Bolderaja Beach is closer to Riga center and has the same landscape as beaches in Jurmala, but it isn't so popular. The beach is technically located in Daugavgriva area, which entirely was a military base, therefore this zone has no any resort infrastructure at all.
This weekend in Latvia is especially long. Due official holidays Day of Labour on Friday and Independence Restoration Day on Monday, this weekend became 4 days-long. Many people spend first sunny days in the open, for example on the Jurmala's beach, making barbeque, drinking beer or just walking :)
Bijusī Emīlijas Rācenes peldiestāde (former Emily Racene Swimming Institution) was built in 1916 as spa treatment. At that time here was possible to swim in warmed up water from sea. During Soviet epoch it was one of the best resort clinics in republic.
Moonlight Party was astounding beach party at Saulkrasti (Sunny Beach). Several arenas with different kinds of electronic music like Trance, Drum and Bass, Techno, House and others. Maxi Jazz (the highlight of this event) + other 50 Djs and thousands of people dancing barefoot made this night full of utterly immense fun and deep emotions. Where else you can swim in the sea and feel its vibrating to the bass? :) I choose one of this photo as the best shot of year 2008.
