  • We visited Jurmala on a very windy day in early April and were almost blown away. Could be worth a visit when the weather is better.

  • It is a beautiful beach. The beach is pretty long so you could have a walk. We spent a whole day here, we had a lot of fun here. There are a lot of cafes here where to enjoy some different types of coffee. I would recommend going in the summer. You will have more fun at that time.
  • Nice sandy beach and a great place for sunbathing and swimming. Especially great for kids with fun activities and building sand castles. Highly recommended.
