5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Once you are there you will not believe to get such kind of beach thinking that you are in the Northen Courtry....of course the weather should be nice to appreciate all,like it 3was for us so...get curious and think about an alternative vacation like we did...you will enjoy it as well as Jurmala city and not only....

“Excellent beach close to Riga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Jurmala is a resort city 25 km from Riga, Latvian capital. You can reach it in half an hour by electric train. In fact, Jurmala is a chain
of small villages along the Riga bay, with excellent sand beaches,
20-30 km long, so you could walk hours long and enjoy nice pinetree forests, dunes, etc.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Long and clean beach, the water is shallow so it’s great for children as well. Not too crowded (at least in the beginning of June). The chargeable (0,20 lati) toilets are really clean, but stay away from the porta-potties :)

“Beach resort of the baltic sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I would recommend to go to Jurmala although you would spend only a weekend in Riga. The beach is beautiful and if you get tired of laying in the sun, you can go see the shopping street near the beach.

A return ticket from Riga central railway station to Majori station (there is no stop called Jurmala) cost 1.95 lats, and the train took about half an hour. You can also stop at the Dzintari station, which is in the other end of the beach.

“Clean and nice beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

When you go from Riga to Jurmala by car you must pay an entrance. Then you have a ticket and you can stay in Jurmala as long as you want. The beach is clean.On the weekend its better you go in the morning, because at 12 o clock you will saty in loong colon of the cars. Its better when you go during the week.
