It is a good break from city touring. If short on time, you might want to skip the Hill of Witches unless you have kids. It is a refreshing walk with lots of witch themed carving, but mostly a make-up story/ attraction for tourist. If you are interest in buying amber -we also bought some amber Jewelry from the Amber...

We caught the ferry from Klaipeda over to the spit for a day trip of cycling. We took the bus down to Nida and cycled back to the halfway town Juondokrante. It's a beautiful peaceful ride, but we were a bit disappointed there weren't more signs telling us where to go to which dune sections or informing us how much... More

There are so many things to see that I do not know where to start... Dunes, beaches, black cormorans nests, Hill of whitches with Unesco heritage and big sun clock on landscape view terrace next to Russian federation border... simply a must see place.

Spent the day cycling the spit, stopped and visited a couple of the dunes. Cycle paths easy to follow, flat, take water as there aren't many places to eat and drink.

you have to spend time here, you can catch the ferry two places in the city and the cruice takes 2-3 minutes. there are busses at the landing pier to take you to Nida or you can walk to the aquarium and dolphin show.

The Curonian Spit National Park is lovely but far too quiet on an April weekday. Being from a British tourist town (with a season all year round) coming to the Spit and finding nothing open (including the Tourist Information Centre) in April was a bit of surprise! But that's Lithuania for you!

Dolphins amazing, beach clean, nice walks. Ferry ride to the actual sea spit short. Horse and carts people looked a bit rough.

I have learned that you really can't go wrong visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites, and national parks. The Curonian Spit is both. I spent a full day there last week (mid April, off off season) and it was wonderful, i'd go back for a long holiday especially when it's warm enough to swim. Geographically unique (look at a map), a... More
