Blue Flag beaches

After tousling your hair, the ferry will take you from Klaipėda to Smiltynė. Riding a bike or taking the pedestrian path, you will spot the blue sea between the pines while you are still up on the hill. Turn through the fragrant grass where you see the Blue Flag flying. Take off your shoes, feel the hot sand under your feet, and scan the area for whatever you need, whether it’s a place to park your bike, a playground, a football pitch or a volleyball court. Don’t worry if your phone dies – you can recharge it at the charging station. The beach even has a special wheelchair so disabled visitors can also go for a swim. If you want to get to a beach faster from the city, go to Melnragė. The second beach also has the Blue Flag flying.

Curonian Spit beaches

This place easy to fall in love with. Once it steals your heart, it won’t let go and will keep tempting and inviting you to come back. There is a reason why UNESCO inscribed the Curonian Spit on the World Heritage List. The peninsula’s vigilantly protected nature, the soft white sand beaches, the fragrant pine air, and the Blue Flag fluttering on the main beaches of Nida and Juodkrantė. This place has everything that fans of pure, natural nature and holidaymakers who enjoy active recreation could need. You can play football and volleyball on the beach, walk along the adjacent pedestrian paths, or rent a bike and take a trip around the Curonian Spit. The lifeguard stations will provide first aid for visitors who are unwell, and the lifeguards will help the disabled go for a swim.

Palanga beaches

Walking along the paths of the old Palanga Park as you take in the centuries-old trees, you will reach the beach near Birutė’s Hill. This is a charming place where there are always less people and more services. The beach is disabled-friendly, and your every step into the sea and every stroke in the water is watched by the vigilant eyes of the lifeguards. There is also a shower where you can wash off the salt of the sea.
