This narrow peninsula divides the Curonian Lagoon which contains the fresh waters from the deltas of several rivers, from the Baltic sea on the other side. It is the prime summertime holiday place for Lithuania, parts of Germany and Russia. There are a number of .small towns along the peninsula, with the lagoon side quieter since it is sheltered from...

Nida is worth the drive down the spit. Visit the local bakery and sample a variety of deserts and breads. You can ask for small slices that are sold by weight. I ordered 4 selections and it was less than 2 euros. Next we walked around and found a small business with smoked fish. It was still warm from coming... More

Hired bikes in Klaipeda and got the ferry to Smiltyne, cycled from there all 50km down to Nida. Would highly recommend this for anyone with moderate fitness and confidence on a bike, if you have the whole day. There is a cycling path almost the whole way, only a few short periods when it is on roads but there isn't... More

Just a few minutes ferry crossing from Klaipeda and a beautiful 'split' or peninsula. A great full say outing through forests with a vague hope of spotting a moose, bear or fix, but plenty of bird life, especially the cormorant and heron nesting colony. So laid back and peaceful. Must sees include the Hill of Witches, drifting sand dunes and... More

Although every guidebook will tell you to go to Nida or the Sea Museum/Dolphinarium (which I'm sure are great too!), my boyfriend and I decided to go our own way and had a great time. We aren't fans of big crowds and prefer nature, so we were surprised by how busy the ferry to the Curonian Spit was after reading... More

We walked this park into the area of all the wooden sculptures. Lovely items for pictures and memories. A relatively easy hike, some hilly terrain. At each turn there is a different sculpture, each with its own story. The waterfront int he park is very pretty. Well worth seeing.

I rented a car with my wife and stopped here for 2 days. It was a lovely place to walk around. Beaches not fantastic but ok. However this is very much a family holiday destination including for kids - not a romantic or party type atmosphere.

We rented a car and went from Klaipeda up to Russian border and sightseeing on the way down. The weather could have been better, rained most of the time. The beach was beautiful and the sea powerful. The woods are magical, and I understand why taking the bicycle around the area is popular.

Must see when visiting Lithuania. If you have a chance to be in the this part of the world, this is a great place to go. I could see staying for a couple of nights.
