Ideal for beach holidays
Poland has miles upon miles of golden sandy coastline and some of the biggest sand dunes in Europe. That topped with hot summers, well above the average for Europe, makes Poland an ideal beach holiday destination.
If you dream of a holidays on a beach, just imagine the over 700 km long golden strip that is the Polish seaside. The northern border of Poland is the Baltic, and most of the coastline is a beach. July and August are the best months for sunbathing at the Polish seaside.
Summertime sees the Polish seaside come to life and the most popular beach resorts attract many holidaymakers searching for sun and relaxation. Apart from the excellent beaches, holiday resorts on the Baltic Sea also boast historically captivating cities, great natural attractions, and a relaxed maritime climate.
The Baltic Sea has many advantages over resorts by the Mediterranean Sea. It guarantees two things the kids love: a large expanse of shallow water and vast beaches of fine, clean sand.
The best beaches for parents with young children are Swinoujscie, Krynica Morska, Tiny Pogorzelica, Dziwnow, Kolobrzeg, Jastarnia and Hel.
There are no dangerous creatures in the Polish sea, but some of the over abundant algae in places can make swimming difficult.
The Polish Baltic coast is approximately 528 kilometres (328 mi) long and extends from Świnoujście on the islands of Usedom and Wolin in the west to Krynica Morska on the Vistula Spit in the east.
For the most part, Poland has a smooth coastline, which has been shaped by the continual movement of sand by currents and winds from west to east. This continual erosion and deposition has formed cliffs, dunes, and spits, many of which have migrated landwards to close off former lagoons, such as Łebsko Lake in Słowiński National Park.
Largest spits are Hel Peninsula and the Vistula Spit, largest Polish Baltic island is Wolin and the largest port cities are Gdynia, Gdańsk, Szczecin and Świnoujście.
The main coastal resorts are Sopot, Międzyzdroje, Kołobrzeg, Łeba, Władysławowo, and the Hel Peninsula.
Jurata is a popular seaside resort on the 35 km long Hel Peninsula, which separates the Bay of Puck from the Baltic Sea.
Jurata was established in the interwar period (1928) as a Polish sea side resort, popular especially among Varsovians. Its name comes from the Lithuanian Goddess Jūratė which in Polish is spelled as Jurata. It’s easily reachable from Tricity by train, which takes approximately one hour.
July and August are high season so make sure you book your accommodation in advance.
Międzyzdroje is located on the western side of the Polish coast, close to the border with Germany and is often referred to as The Pearl of the Baltic.
The town is famous for (Festiwal Gwiazd) the annual Festival of Stars and attracts many Polish film and TV celebrities, who leave imprints of their hands on the Promenade of Stars inspired by the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Łeba and Ustka
Łeba and Ustka are coastal towns situated on the two opposite sides of the beautiful Słowiński National Park – famous for its “shifting dunes”, which move due to strong winds creating a desert like landscape.
Ustka is a host of the annual International Contest of Fireworks, which takes place in the middle of July and boasts two beaches connected by a pedestrianised bridge on the Słupia River, which divides the town in two.
