Golden Beaches of Gdańsk
Glitz and Glamour in Sopot
One of the greatest pleasures in Sopot is simply strolling along the soft, sandy beach and keeping an eye out for glints of the golden amber that frequently washes ashore. If you’re interested in swimming, the best time to visit is in July and August when the water is warm and there are numerous events to enjoy. Koliba beach in Sopot is a particularly popular spot, awarded Blue Flag status in 2010. This tropical-themed beach features palm leaf umbrellas and a mellow beach hut café serving up fruity cocktails and refreshing smoothies, which you can sip from your hammock. At night, the temperature may drop but the social scene in Sopot beach heats up with its bustling seaside eateries and glitzy nightclubs, a major draw for the Eastern European A-list.
Secluded Beaches of the Hel Peninsula
Those seeking privacy can venture north to the Hel Peninsula Gdańsk, which stretches for 34 kilometers with quiet, sandy landscapes and windblown pine trees. The peninsula is marked by the fishing villages of Hel and Wladyslawowo at either end, and dotted by a few other small villages all connected with train links and a modern road. Take a dip in the clean waters of the northern shore, where you’ll be able to escape the hustle and bustle of the resort areas. The Hel Peninsula is linked to our Radisson Blu Hotel, Gdańsk by train, bus, and boat, making it an easily accessible day out.
