This is a unique UNESCO site and well worth a visit, especially if you are into hiking or skiing in the winter. Come prepared for extremes in weather. It can get very busy during the summer months.

What a perfect day trip. We took the ferry at 9:30 and hiked and drove the roads, had smoked fish for lunch and did some great hikes. Not many people and if I had a little more time I would have biked the trail but we were unsure of the weather. It was the highlight of our 5 day stay... More

Spent 6 hours driving around this very attractive area. we were off season- but were able to enjoy a brilliant show art the Dolphinarium, to wander round n old a fisherman's farmstead and to look over some fishing trawlers. We visited Nida- a pretty place with lots of cafes and drove rto the border with Kalimngrad.

This had to be one of the best places we have visited in all our travel. Beautiful beaches, sand dunes that were created millions of years back, trekking trails...this is not to be missed if you love nature and trekking. We stayed at Klaipeda and took the ferry to travel to Nida. We visited this twice because one day is... More

This thin stretch of land joins Lithuania and Russia. The Lithuanian side is very interesting with the largest sand dune in Europe, forests (allegedly with moose), beaches and the lagoon. There is a good tourist infrastructure with accommodation and shops, but not overwhelmingly so. There is an artisan village and some old architecture to complete the attraction list. To properly...

Taking the ferry and the bus is cheap and practical, plan a full day to explore this wonderful place.

We traveled in September, and unbeknownst to us, we could not rent bikes on the Spit to take the entire length from Nida to Juodkrante or Smiltynė. If you want to rent a bike to ride the length of the Spit, you have to rent in Klaipeda and take it on either of the ferries and retire it there. If... More

The Curonian Spit must surely be the highlight of Lithuania ; do not visit the country without going there for at least a couple of days.

Witches Hill is a must visit. Nida is charming and if the weather is good spend some time on a beach. It is peaceful and lovely.

Despite the weather (of course it's better when it's sunny) it is one of the most beautifull places in Lithuania - from magical, mysterious, with a strong energy to wonderful panoramas to and from the dunes. UNESCO heritage and it has to be preserved like that. Thomas Mann had a good taste to build there a house! Аnd still you... More
